TOOLS for anxiety, panic, depression, anger, etc. 

 

There are three parts to the Recovery International Method:

1. Attending Recovery International meetings and giving four-part examples.
2. Reading Dr. Low’s books.
3. Practicing the Recovery International tools in your daily life.

The Recovery International Method is a system of cognitive-behavioral self-help techniques for controlling behavior and changing attitudes. People who practice the living skills detailed in the Recovery International Method learn to change their thoughts and behaviors; changes in attitudes and beliefs follow.

Recovery International’s tools are the cognitive behavioral self-help techniques people use to guide themselves through difficult situations

Sample Recovery International Tools

  • Humor is our best friend, temper is our worst enemy.
  • If you can’t change a situation, you can change your attitude towards it.
  • Be self-led, not symptom-led.
  • Nervous symptoms and sensations are distressing but not dangerous.
  • Temper is, among other things, blindness to the other side of the story.
  • Comfort is a want, not a need.
  • There is no right or wrong in the trivialities of every day life.
  • Calm begets calm, temper begets temper.
  • Don’t take our own dear selves too seriously.
  • Feelings should be expressed and temper suppressed.
  • Helplessness is not hopelessness.
  • Some people have a passion for self-distrust.
  • Temper maintains and intensifies symptoms.
  • Do things in part acts.
  • Endorse yourself for the effort, not only for the performance.
  • Have the courage to make a mistake.
  • Feelings are not facts.
  • Do the things you fear and hate to do.
  • Fear is a belief—beliefs can be changed.
  • Every act of self-control leads to a sense of self-respect.
