Where Are You Going to Be On New Year’s Day 2022?

by Hope Rehab Team

What is it that most people want at the start of a new year? Isn’t it usually the hope to do better or be better? Deep down we know that we are capable of so much more. We suspect that the life we are living is somehow less satisfying than the life we could be living. The New Year approaches like a line in the sand with the opportunity of a brand new chapter.

Hope. It’s all in the name really. I was broken when I arrived at Hope. I’d been in and out of Rehabs in Australia, never really coming to terms with, or believing it were possible to stay sober. Hope changed all that. Hope not only got me clean, It helped me find purpose. It helped change my mindset. It gave me Hope again.

Does Anything Change on New Year’s Day

It is usually true that nothing really changes on New Year’s Day. It can be just like any other day. Or to put it even more bluntly; same shit, different year. It doesn’t have to be that way though. If we are sincerely motivated, and we create the right conditions for change to happen, it is possible to shift our life in a new direction.

How Does Change Occur?

Our lives are always changing, the problem is that we get stuck in certain patterns that mean we keep returning to the same problems. Our difficulty is not with promoting change but with preventing these habitual mental patterns from hijacking the process so that we keep ending up with more of the same. How do we do that?

Have you heard the old saying, ‘it is better the devil you know’? There is a part of our mind that works on this principle. It fears change, and it would rather we remain miserable than facing the uncertainty of a new way of living. We all say that we want to be happy, but this part of our mind prefers things to remain the same. It is this old pattern of thinking that sabotages our attempts to change (if we have an addiction problem, this obstacle becomes even greater due to chemical changes in our brain) .

There are some of the steps we can take to get beyond our inner resistance to change:

  • Join a community that will support and encourage us to change (we are stronger together).

  • Devote all of our focus to making this change. When it comes to turning our life around, a half-heated effort is unlikely to work. One of the reasons people struggle to move their life in a new direction is they are too distracted by their day-to-day responsibilities and stresses.

  • Spend time in a new environment because this can make seeing things in a new way easier (see below).

  • Make use of evidence-based approaches with a proven record of helping people turn their lives around such as mindfulness, CBT, motivational coaching, support groups, counselling, and ACT.

A beautiful place for beautiful people! If you’re serious about restarting your life, Hope is where you want to be. With breath taking views, wonderful mentors and exotic food of the highest quality, I can’t recommend a better rehabilitation center. You are bound to find a new family who are friendly and supportive beyond anything I can describe. I strongly recommend Hope

Maybe Other People Can Change But Not Me

If you have been struggling with an addiction or mental health issue for a long time, you may well be starting to lose hope. If you have experienced great trauma, you may find it almost impossible to imagine a better future. This is how it was for many of us before the big change happened. It doesn’t matter how many times you have fallen down, there is always the possibility of positive change.

How Will Running Away to Thailand Fix My Life?

Travelling to a rehab in Thailand may sound like a bit of a tropical holiday, but there is far more to it than that. Being in a new environment makes it easier to see things in new ways, and this is the foundation of change. Our clients do get to enjoy Thailand, it’s culture, and the wonderful hospitality of the local people, but we are no holiday camp. There is serious work to be done if we are going to make the change you yearn for happen.

So, where are you going to be on New Year’s Day 2022? Are you going to be enjoying the fruits of a brand new chapter or will it be more of the same? Contact us now if it is the second option you would prefer.

Impact of Covid 19 on Mental Health and Addiction Problems

It has been a tough couple of years. The covid 19 epidemic has impacted our world in ways that many of us just were not prepared for; increased alcohol and drug use, high levels of anxiety, increased stress, and PTSD due to medical interventions are just some of the ways it has impacted our mental health.

Do Not Waste Your Time and Funds on The Wrong Rehab

Choosing the wrong rehab can not only mean a loss of time or money, but it can also mean the loss of an opportunity. This is the saddest part. When we take major steps to change our life that don't work out, it tends to weaken our motivation. We may even give up on the idea of a new life completely - at least temporarily.

Never Mind the Bollocks – Here is Hope Rehab

Those of us who have battled with an addiction will have plenty of experience with bollocks. The whole thing becomes a never-ending festival of bollocks - a shitshow of epic proportions. We lose things, we do stuff we later regret, and we hurt ourselves as well as those we care about.
