Coping Skills

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!

Take care of yourselves. Until next time.

Dissociation

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.

Until next time!

Opening Up

Hello friends,

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.
