Story Highlights

During the pandemic SVG and the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation established a relationship designed to make it easier for sports production professionals to get support for everything from substance use disorders to mental health, anxiety, and depression. And if you need some daily inspiration be sure to book mark the page below and check out Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation's Thought for the Day.

It includes not only a thought but also a meditation and a prayer, all useful ways to remain centered and, most importantly, well.

Below are yesterday's offerings and to get inspired with today's new thought simply click here. Or, even better, bookmark it and visit it everyday.

Thought for the Day

We used to depend on drinking for a lot of things. We depended on drinking to help us enjoy things. It gave us a kick. It broke down our shyness and helped us to have a good time. We depended on drinking to help us when we felt low physically. If we had a toothache or just a hangover, we felt better after a few drinks. We depended on drinking to help us when we felt low mentally. If we'd had a tough day at work or if we'd had a fight with our husband or wife, or if things just seemed against us, we felt better under the influence of alcohol. For us alcoholics, it got so that we depended on drinking for almost every thing. Have I got over that dependence on drinking?

Meditation for the Day

I believe that complete surrender of my life to God is the foundation of serenity. God has prepared for us many mansions. I do not look upon that promise as referring only to the after-life. I do not look upon this life as something to be struggled through, in order to get the rewards of the next life. I believe that the Kingdom of God is within us and we can enjoy eternal life here and now.

Prayer for the Day

I pray that I may try to do God's will. I pray that such understanding, insight, and vision shall be mine as shall make my life eternal, here and now.

Also for those struggling with negative thoughts click here to learn more about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, a form of behavior-change psychotherapy that can help you accept certain unpleasant thoughts, emotions or feelings as okay in certain situations-and then move on.
