imaginationImagination can be a great and powerful thing. When you were younger, you probably spent countless hours imagining grand adventures while you played with toys and dress-up clothes. As children, we believe anything is possible because our imagination tells us so. We can think up anything so that we can do anything. As adults, that imagination tends to fade away slowly. However, imagination can be a great and powerful tool during recovery. Here are a few suggestions to keep in mind if you are beginning to use your imagination more.


Visualize What You Want

Goals are a huge part of recovery. Having specific goals and steps to achieve those goals is a great way to help you figure out the direction you want your life to take. Use your imagination. Think about your goals; visualize each step and every scenario. 


Imagine Achieving Your Goals

Visualize yourself achieving your goals. See yourself doing what you have been working towards or achieving something you have always desperately wanted. When we can see our accomplishments, it can help us push forward and make those dreams a reality. 


Imagination and Motivation

Our imagination can help our motivation. Sometimes there will be moments during recovery where you feel overwhelmed or simply unable to achieve your goals. You may feel like there is simply no way you can accomplish the goals that you set for yourself. If you feel this way, if you feel defeated, it is important to talk with your mental health care provider. After that, try using your imagination. Visualize yourself accomplishing your goals, feeling calm and healthy, and being surrounded by the people you love doing the things you love. You may be surprised how great using your imagination can make you feel. 


Using your imagination can be a powerful tool during recovery. You can visualize yourself in healthy and happy situations. You can use your imagination to see yourself achieve your goals, do things you love, and live the healthy and successful life you have planned for yourself. When we can see ourselves achieving our goals, it can help us to stay motivated. Deciding to work on your mental health, trauma, or addiction is a big step.
