Re: ways to cope with voices

Watch YouTube or Netflix - engaging your senses can help, especially humourous things.

Keep busy - put as much attention as you can into what you are doing and it can help to focus on something other than what they are saying.

Do puzzles/ hard mind consuming games or something (eg count back from 1000 by 7) - consuming you're focus and not giving the voices space

Hugs and spending time with loved ones - just a reminder that you are loved, you matter and that people care about you.

Re: ways to cope with voices

Hi @redhead,

This comment really resonated with me: "Hugs and spending time with loved ones - just a reminder that you are loved, you matter and that people care about you." The power of connection and compassion is so valuable and I love that you have listed this as a strategy Heart

Thank you so much for adding some more strategies @redhead ! This list is going to be so helpful for so many people accessing and reading the forums Heart

Re: ways to cope with voices

@Jess1-RO it's also helped me bringing this thread back to life. I had forgotten some of the strategies and I was caught up in the delusions associated with my voices and feeling stuck.
And if this helps other people by reviving this thread I'm very glad about that.

Re: ways to cope with voices

@redhead thank you for the suggestions, I've had a read through and love them, you've reminded me that puzzles usually help a lot (as well as Sudokus but I've never done one properly, I always make a mistake and then can't figure out where I went wrong..)
