Re: [CHAT] The sickness

I like to grab a heat pack when I'm really stressed out or can feel my anger coming up. Just heat it up, put it where I can feel the anger or stress on my body, usually my chest and watch some tv

Re: [CHAT] The sickness

@laurajane great list

Re: [CHAT] The sickness

My psych sent me this list of coping strategies... I did email him back and say half of them including "dancing with plants" were a bit stupid. But I think having a good laugh at the stupid ones are a distraction enough sometimes.

Re: [CHAT] The sickness

@j95 i did this therapy once that was about the same thing... sort of.

 

you had to picture where your emotions or feeling were in your body and find a way to work them out! a heat pack is a good way to do it. sort of puts a calming physical sensation on it.

Re: [CHAT] The sickness

I'd try that if I had a heat pack @j95. I usually either let my anger run wild or keep it as many counselors would say, 'in the backpack'.
