    Ways I cope and things I do to improve my mental /and physical health and well-being (everyone is an individual)

    When I'm having a bad day mentally and physically in a flare up I'm going to share some small tips /things that help me get through the day personally - ***DISCLAIMER **we are all human beings and all individuals, so what works for one person, may not be useful to another. It may be just be down to trail and error. Everyone is different.
    When in pain physically apart from taking my usual pain killers, I try to do simple breathing exercises in a calm place where I won't be disturbed.
    When having a bad mental health day I may try to sleep it off, clean bits in the house or I find reading or journaling helpful. #copingwithararedisease #Strategy #CopingMechanism

    GEN Z!!

    PUT A FINGER DOWN IF:

    You own at least one pair of Pillow Paws

    Someone has gifted you a self help book

    You've gotten brain zaps

    The crisis line has told you to do breathing exercises or journal instead of unaliving

    The crisis line has put you on hold

    You've gotten booty juiced

    You know your enneagram and/or myers briggs types

    You use BBW aromatherapy products

    You've bought random/unnecessary things when manic or when trying to fill the void

    You own a weighted blanket, an adult coloring book, or some kind of guided journal

    You unexpectedly dye/cut your hair

    You buy Steven Rhodes t-shirts

    You still listen to My Chemical Romance

    Squishmallows. If you know you know.

    The biggest part of your diet is iced coffee

    A conversation with myself

    My coping mechanism is primarily to travel. I usually travel every 2-3 months to reset, reflect and write. But the pandemic prohibited me to do so. This conversation sums up all my bottled up thoughts since my last travel on December 2019. #Depression #BipolarDisorder #keepgoing #UsapTayo #Travel #CopingTips #copingstrategies #CopingMechanism #CopingWithAnxiety #Anxiety

    Winter is a depressing season for me, but sometimes I have fun in the rain.

    Do you attach yourself to fictional characters as a coping/comfort mechanism? If so, I would love to hear who and why? #CopingMechanism

    Using Journaling to cope? Does it work for you? Have any tips?

    I have been thinking about starting to journal. There’s a lot going on and no way to talk about it seriously and to fully get out these feelings. So I am wondering does it help others? And if you find it helpful do you have any tips? #Anxiety #CopingMechanism #CopingTips #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #LymeDisease
