Play animal crossing or another soothing video game 

Re: 1000001 COPING STRATEGIES & DISTRACTIONS

Spending time with animals- eg: brushing/patting animals can be really soothing and also help in feel connected/grounded

Watch Another Dirty Room!

 

(CW in link for germs/yucky stuff, for anyone who might find that upsetting, but the gross out factor can be a really good distraction, and has also been an incentive to clean out my depression hovel many times!)

Like @DruidChild said, life simulation video games are a great distraction when you need it! They allow anyone to experience a variety of real life activities without consequence or stress at their own pace! Some examples of these types of games are:

  • Animal Crossing (all Nintendo consoles) – A social simulation video game that is open ended in what should do.
  • Stardew Valley (almost all platforms, even iOS and android) – A farming simulation role-playing game where you take over your grandpa's old farm.
  • Harvest Moon/Story of Seasons (all Nintendo consoles) – A farming simulation role-playing game where you build up a farm.
  • My Time at Portia (PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, PS4) – A building-focused simulation role-playing game where you build up your workshop by crafting and building things.

 

There are also so many more other simulation games that can be fun and distracting even for a moment!
