I recently got into journaling which I think is a great way of letting out all your current stresses, worries and other thoughts into paper!

This will be a bit gross,
But watching blackhead removals are really satisfying to me.
Other slime videos can be good too, but blackheads and ASMR are all good videos to watch.

Drawing can definitely help. I always draw on my arm, but my parents hate it when I do that.
They can’t stop me! Smiley Happy

Re: 1000001 COPING STRATEGIES

Recognising the thing that's making me anxious and actively turning away and doing something else - even just for a few minutes. Then I try and repeat that if I notice myself turning towards the thing again. Today for me, it was reading news updates on Twitter Smiley Frustrated - then I got off my phone and joined my friends in their conversation at lunch.
