Jeremy Renner is not taking life for granted.

The actor penned an emotional message on Instagram, Monday, following his near-fatal snowplow accident on Jan. 1. He revealed all of the treatments he's been having to aid his recovery.

“I have been exploring EVERY type of therapy since Jan 14th … everyday," Renner wrote in his Instagram caption. “Countless hours of physical therapy, peptide injections, iv drips and pushes, stem cell and exosomes, red light / IR therapy, hyperbaric chamber 2.0 atmospheres, cold plunge, and the list goes on and on….”

The Avengers: Endgame star, 52, went on to say that his greatest therapy has been, "his mind," and his "will to keep pushing through his recovery." He added that he feels it his "his duty" to be "exceptional" after his accident.

“Not to squander my life being spared, but to give back to my family, friends, and all of you whom have empowered me to endure,” he added.

In January, Renner’s reps confirmed to PEOPLE that he was "in critical but stable condition," after a snowplow accident.

His rep revealed that Renner had sustained injuries "after experiencing a weather-related accident while plowing snow earlier today," adding that “his family is with him and he is receiving excellent care."

Since the accident, Renner has been very open about his journey to recovery. Last month, he revealed to CNN that he doesn’t keep any “fat” in his life anymore and he’s very clear about how he wants to spend his time.

“I’m very, very clear. My life is really lean, if that makes sense," he said. "There’s no fat in my life anymore. I don’t have time for that. So, there’s something really beautiful about having that superpower.”

Back in October, the star revealed that he has a collection of music coming out about the different milestones in his recovery journey.

Meanwhile, the actor made time for some Halloween fun by dressing up as a giant sloth at the end of last month. "D-D-D-DJ Sloth!,” the actor said in an Instagram video, which featured his 10-year-old daughter Ava Berlin. He shares Ava with his ex-wife Sonni Pacheco.
