Focus on Recovery - Detach from Electronic Distractions[/caption]Another great part of my experience of being in rehab as a guest at Serenity Vista was being away from all electronics, Internet, computer, phone, and social media. I actually thought it would be more difficult. In a few days, I completely forgot about it. My relation with each moment began more intense. Without those distractions, I was more fully in the now and in touch with the real experience of life. Not caught up in mind, planning, and feeling pressured to reply to messages. I was just lost in time. I was fully available to each moment’s gift.I realized that it is so easy to get distracted and waste energy on social media and Internet. Also, sad to realize that when I am caught up on my phone, I miss out on life’s beauty. It is during these weeks in addiction recovery rehab at Serenity Vista, that I got back connected to nature. I learned to pay attention to my five senses more, as well as what is going on around me. I gained clarity of mind by being away from the overwhelming information internet offers. I am committed to only use these devises for useful purpose and try not to waist so much time getting lost in the infinite movement of internet.
In conclusion, looking at myself was not easy. The holistic recovery experience and comprehensive counseling and therapies challenged me to look closely at my fears, my insecurities,and my false beliefs. It was not easy. I was scared to dig, scared of what I might find. As I took up layers and layers of conditioning, as I questioned my old ways of living, I came to the realization that I have been pretty insane in some of my ways of relating to the world. Like doing a puzzle, I was able to put pieces together and understand where my unhealthy behaviours came from. I gained a lot of self-understanding. It was a rich experience where I faced my demons, forgave the past, and came to accept myself more. I am grateful for this experience and am looking forward to continue on my journey, which is not finished at all.Maya is an intern student at Serenity Vista Addiction Recovery Drug Rehab in Panama.
