12 Recovery Quotes to Rebuild Your Health and Happiness

In the movies it looks so easy. You get sick, feel down, then work hard on your recovery – maybe with one setback for dramatic effects – and voila, you’re all better.

Recovery stories on wellness websites often follow the same narrative. After trying all options and hitting rock bottom, the sick person finds the (holistic) solution for their illness, leaving them feeling more energetic than ever before.

As inspirational as these accounts are, real life usually isn’t as simple or glamorous as that. In reality, recovery rarely is a linear process. On the contrary – it’s a process of achievements and setbacks that can repeat itself multiple times. Recovery also takes time. Even a small cut takes a few days to fully heal. And sometimes, regaining your former health just isn’t possible. The disease is too complex, the treatment options insufficient, the body too weakened or damaged.

That’s why I believe in creating your own definition of recovery, one that isn’t limited to being fully healed. No matter if you’re struggling with chronic illness, serious injury, mental health problems or addiction, there’s always something you can do to make tiny improvements to your physical health, emotional wellbeing or quality of life.

So if you could use some motivation to keep working on rebuilding your health and happiness, take a good look at these 12 recovery quotes.

The Difference Between Genuine Optimism and Toxic Positivity | The Health Sessions

The Difference Between Genuine Optimism and Toxic Positivity (And Why It Matters)

When’s the last time someone told you to “just be positive” after sharing your struggles?

There’s a tricky relationship between positive thinking, health and happiness. Over the past decade, experts have promoted positivity as a simple but highly effective tool to lead a happier and healthier life.

And rightfully so. Positivity has been linked to lower levels of stress, stronger immunity, better cardiovascular health, increased feelings of physical and emotional wellbeing, and even a longer lifespan. Cultivating positive feelings like joy, hope and inspiration also builds good mental habits such as attention, resilience and optimism, which in turn buffer the potential negative effects of stressful times.

But anyone’s who’s ever been seriously sick knows there’s another side to positive thinking and health.
