@j95 great question!

Alternatives to venting:
Writing it down instead of saying it.
Writing your thoughts into a song.
Singing a song that displays some of the emotion you're feeling.
Going for a walk.

Re: [CHAT]: Stinking thinking

hmm this is a tough question but writing. i also like @StarLord one of singing a song. I could definitely put on a really big belty song and scream it out haha but i think trying to break it down into steps and think about things logically helps. I have a set of questions that I sort of ask myself and write down when i feel like im spiralling or getting overwhelmed and that really helps me.

 Try turning negatives into positives
Do a worry time diary entry
Think about what you would say to someone who was going through what you're going through. 
Play some kind of game
Dunk your head in a bucket of cold water
Do a handstand
Do a hollow body hold
Clean the bathroom
Give someone an honest response, rather than a polite one
Turn all the lights on in the house and then off again as quickly as you can
Make a really good and healthy food plan, and then cheat on it Smiley Tongue 
Think about what you feel like doing, and do the exact opposite 
Create things and then give them to someone or throw them at a total stranger
Catch a train somewhere and get off after 45 minutes and explore 
Take photos of cats
