Do you feel spent and tired at the end of your day? Are professional and social obligations keeping you away from activities that really fulfill you?  Join The FixSocial Workout and Hyde Yoga and take a mini-vacation from your daily grind. Starting on Wednesday, March 14, we challenge you to live entirely sober for 14 days AND to devote at least 30 minutes to personal time— which means unplugging all your devices and computers, turning off your TV, and indulging in a solitary activity that brings you real pleasure. Pick up your old trumpet, try out a new recipe, or kick back with a great new book. The key to this experiment is to allow no interruptions—this time is reserved just for you! Our pals at Social Workout will help you track your progress and put you in touch with other motivated people. And as a reward for sticking it out, you'll receive a $25 coupon from Hyde Yoga for purchases over $50. If you’re looking for further inspiration, check out Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi's new book Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience, which explains why taking some time for yourself is essential for long-term happiness. Sign Up For The Fix's Recovery Challenge Here.

Reflections
 
 
 
 

This exclusive Northern California rehab is all about client choice—as well as golf outings, Buddhist field trips and keeping up with the office.

Capo By The Sea
 
 
 
 

Capo By The Sea offers an executive rehab program complete with medical detox and a focus on dual-diagnosis issues, as well as an outpatient option in an environment that exudes the kind of beach house optimism one would expect from an Orange County recovery outfit.

Journey Malibu
 
 
 
 

Want many of the luxury amenities A-listers have come to expect—including an enormous backyard with a pool and patio, an herb garden, a volleyball net and a spectacular vista of the Santa Monica mountains—with a recovery program to match?
