Getting into action comprises one of the chapters of the Alcoholic Anonymous Big Book. It was last nite that a person in our weekly phone meeting told us a way that she was “getting into action.” She mentioned how saying STOP to herself when certain thoughts spiraled her down into deeper ruminations that this enabled her to change her thoughts into a physical hope filled action.
There is also another positive mantra that I personally like to use is MOTIVATION FOLLOWS ACTION! Get the body moving and the body will follow. And finally I know that to get out of the hole of my depression is in fact to stop digging. How often have I continued to depress myself with all these unpleasant ruminations.
