How to beat porn and sexual addiction? The importance of hobbies

Hobbies are greatly beneficial for everyone’s mental health especially during recovery.

Way hobbies have a positive impact:

  • They are great ways to relax and unwind.
  • They are a good outlet for negative stress.
  • They have a spiritual importance because you connect with yourself.
  • Many hobbies aid people in discovering hidden talents they have.
  • Hobbies are a great way to meet new people with a mutual ground to build from.

Hobbies have the power to keep some of the greatest enemies of recovery away stress, boredom and loneliness.

 

When recovering from addiction, you are clearing up a lot of time that would be spent on the addiction in the past.

Knowing and planning for the is crucial for a lasting result.

 

It is important for everyone to have a source of joy and fulfillment outside of family and carrier, something that is primarily for YOU.

 

Hobbies are the perfect platform to merge those two together.

You are spending this new found time on something that is fulfilling and mentally strengthening you.

By default, keeping recovery enemies at bay, such as loneliness, stress and boredom.

 

Hobbies are a great way to strengthen social bonds with both friends and family.

While working with clients that overcome their addictions, I frequently hear that they through their new hobbies feel much more connected with themselves, family and friends.

 

  • Through fishing a dad found a platform for him and his kid to connect in a way they previously couldn’t.
  • Through archery a man found skills he had no idea he processed.

 

As true as the sun will rise tomorrow, I know I wouldn’t be enjoying an addiction free life myself without my previous passion for RC-cars and new found passion for compound bow archery.

 

Hobbies also provide another layer of security during recovery.

For example:

  • On your way home from work something gets you triggered, and the urge starts to gain momentum.
  • At home you realize that you are alone, bored and triggered.

Instead of giving in, or simply fighting back by thinking about not giving in, you turn to your hobby. Take fishing for example.

Inspect your fishing rod.

Are all components in good shape?

Do you need to buy something new before a trip?

Who can you call and invite to for a short trip?

Get everything in order and take a trip.

A simple shift of focus towards something that brings joy and fulfillment is a mighty weapon to have in your arsenal.

 

All hobbies provide a meditational aspect too.

Take the fishing example again. Even if you can’t just disappear to your favorite fishing spot whenever you feel like it, you can take a moment to plan your next trip or remember a past trip. To shift focus from negativity or simply because its meaningful to you.
