Sober Activities in Anaheim, CA

Published on:

One of the things that many in recovery struggle with once they finish substance abuse treatment is finding things that they can do that don’t involve drugs or alcohol. 

Prior to getting sober most of their daily life was spent focusing on their drug or alcohol addiction. As a result, they have to find enjoyable activities that promote sober living.

For those who are looking for fun, sober things to do in and around Southern California, let’s take a look at 5 sober activities that you can do in Anaheim, CA.

Go For a Hike

Hiking can be a great way to get out and exercise while also enjoying the great outdoors. When it comes to hiking, few areas in the country have more scenic and beautiful backdrops than Orange County, California. 

Places such as Costa Mesa, Blackstar Canyon, Top of the World in Laguna Beach, and Crystal Cove State Beach offer great hiking trails for becoming one with nature and getting a good workout whether you are heading out on your own or looking for a fun activity to do with friends and family.

Go To the Beach

After you have worked up a good sweat hiking, you can hop on over to one of Southern California’s world-famous beaches to cool off and keep enjoying the outdoors. 

Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach, and Manhattan Beach are just a few of the great beaches located near Anaheim, CA where you can surf, play some beach volleyball, go for a swim, or just set up a beach chair and enjoy the weather while you dive into a good book.

Host a Sober Game Night

Now that you are sober you might think that your days of partying are over. While they might be in the traditional sense, just because you are in recovery doesn’t mean that you still can’t gather with friends and family in a social setting.

If you have the party “itch” but don’t want to worry about the possibility of being around drugs or alcohol, consider putting together a sober game night at your house. You can make sure to let everyone know that it is going to be a sober evening and then have each party guest bring his or her favorite game to “share” with the group for the night.

Focus on Your Inner Self with Yoga and Meditation

One of the messages we are taught in treatment is that we need to take the time to focus on ourselves, and not just our physical health but our mental health as well. In fact, experiential therapies such as yoga and meditation have become more and more popular as of late during addiction recovery, including right here at Restorations Health Care.

If you find yourself stressed or wound up, simply stop what you are doing for a few minutes and practice either meditation or yoga. The great thing about both of these activities is that they can be done pretty much anywhere around Los Angeles. If you are going to practice yoga or meditation outside the house though, make sure you are doing it in a safe environment. 

Give Back to Your Community

Volunteering is not only a great way to feel the joys of giving back to others, but it is also a great opportunity to do sober and social activities. There is no shortage of volunteer opportunities in Anaheim and the greater Southern California area from helping out at homeless shelters or soup kitchens to volunteering at your favorite non-profit organization. 

If you are looking for ideas for helping to give back to your community, you can visit the City of Anaheim’s Volunteer and Civic Engagement website.
