On this episode of Journey to Wellness, I list off some common coping strategies to help when we’re feeling stuck in a slump or need something to do to in our spare time.
Sometimes we get stuck in our feels (feelings), and then we don’t know what to do. Then, we spiral into a hole that is hard to get back out of. If we stop the cycle and implement some coping skills, we’re better off for it.
What are some of your coping skills? I’d really like to hear from some of you on this. I always love hearing someone’s coping skills, especially if they differ from mine.
Also, thanks for coming back and checking out my blog post after it has been forever since I have posted. Haha. I’m going to try to do better, although I am running out of videos!
Hey ya’ll ! Sorry for the unexpected hiatus in my blog posts! Life happened. And here we are. Lol.
So, here is my video I made regarding dissociation, the next video in my journey to wellness series. In it I talk about what dissociation means and what my personal experience with it is. I also share some ways to combat this experience that was shared with me by my therapist at the time.
Let me know your thoughts and/or your suggestions to combat dissociation if you are one that experiences it! Let’s get the conversation going!
For more videos on this topic, I would suggest searching “Kati Morton dissociation” in a YouTube search! She’s a professional and I am not! I’m just a person in search of healing.
The first part of this video I discuss Monavie juice, which I no longer drink. The main part to take away from that is that your nutrition is important whether it is through diet or vitamins. Both can definitely help how you feel physically.
There was not much to this video besides me catching viewers up on my life after my grandma’s death and figuring out how great physical exercise made me feel. I look back on this now and realize that I need to try desperately to implement that same exercise in my life again now that I am not doing as well as I was in this video.
The main take away from today’s video was that despite the sadness and bad going on around us there is always some sort of silver lining – some sort of positive perspective for us to look into instead of the opposite. If you didn’t enjoy this video, don’t worry. They’ll get more in depth into mental health again after this one, so stay in your seat. 😉
Hope you guys have a great week. I’ll see you next time.
One thing is for sure – opening up to someone is HARD. Like I say in this video, you have to experience that uncomfortable feeling for a moment when you share your story to someone in order to begin healing. But…. there are helpful things to try to get your story across when trying to communicate! Writing is one of them!
Let us not be locked down and silenced by fear. We need to open up and share – for ourselves and for those around us. You never know who is being inspired by YOUR actions.
