12 Ways to Get a Natural High

 

1. Take a walk or a ride around after dark and look at the night sky– the moon, the stars, and at this time of year, the beautiful, twinkling, sparkling Christmas lights

 

2. Put on music and dance around, alone or together – salsa, waltz, rock n roll, tango, disco

 

3. Sit silently outside in a naturally beautiful place for 30 – 60 minutes, deeply inhaling the fragrance

 

4. Find a friend that makes you laugh, and generate laughter

 

5. Go to a concert or other live music venue

 

6. Attend a comedy show and laugh out loud

 

7. Cook or bake something to infuse your living space with tantalizing smells

 

8. Prepare and enjoy a delicious meal tailored to your own tastes, health needs, and preferences

 

9. Escape whole-heartedly and open-mindedly into a deep breathing meditation

 

10. Get a massage

 

11. Immerse yourself in a group of like-minded people and tap into the energy of the group   consciousness (spiritual, recovery-based / 12 Step, political, or social – as long as it’s positive.)

 

12. Establish and consciously connect with your Higher Power

 

 

In gratitude, harmony and support,

    Great ideas. It reminds me of the power of selfless service to elevate my life condition. I feel so good when I’m sharing my story of healing and transformation or serving at the prison. It reminds me that the poison of my old story has been turned into medicine.
