Working towards lifelong recovery from obesity

Enjoy Life – By supporting other people’s recovery

It is very easy to just focus on ourselves; not only in our busy day-to-day life but also in our personal struggles with obesity recovery. And of course, we have to focus on ourselves to recover from obesity. 

But one of the really satisfying things in life is supporting others to achieve their goals. For us on the journey of obesity recovery we have a ready-made source of great life satisfaction – supporting others to achieve their weight-loss goals. 

It takes some time and energy to think of others, to become aware of their needs, and to go out of our way to do something that really helps them. But when we do, we open a door to one of the best ways of finding joy and contentment in life. Even doing very small things can work a treat. 

Happiness is required to sustain recovery. Enjoying life right now can be achieved by supporting others make progress with their recovery – through taking the time to listen, perhaps sharing our own experiences, and doing practical things to help fellow travellers.
