Mindfulness Meditations for Stress Relief

Today I challenge you to draw your mental illness. If you have depression, then draw what you think depression would look like if you could physically see it. The same with, anxiety, fear, and even eating disorders. Then when you're done draw what you think happiness looks like. Same with, calmness, relaxation, confidence, and more positive emotions. It's fun and therepudic. Let me know if you've tried it! :)

Trying to change my thoughts to this recently: it's okay to have anxiety. It's natural. And I'm going to be okay.

Laugh. Laugh it off. By laughing you're telling your brain you're having fun. You'll stop feeling worried or anxious or scared, you'll feel happier

I try to stay in the moment. Doesn't always work, but when it does, I have great peace. I am prone to anxiety over little things. I do my best to choose my words carefully, and that is a great feeling. Being genuine is pretty natural. I beat myself up sometimes, though.

I draw and write about the world around me. I like to focus on flowers.

I've started to try to have a positive mind more often, even if the worst comes to worst. I always seem to think bad of any situation that I am involved in but recently I've swapped it around to try and think more positively and it definetely makes a difference to everyday life.

When people get angry at you for no reason. Don't get angry yourself.. feel sorry for the person that they feel this way today. Its not your fault.

Everyone should watch the movie "room" - the perspective really made me think about my own journey and daily life.

When difficulties arises, I calm myself by identifying 5 things I hear, 5 things I see, 5 things in contact with me, 1 thing I can smell. Usually shifts my mind....

Is it wrong to keep a rubber band on my wrist and pop it when I have a self-defeating thought? Because that's my crude beginner technique. ;)

Music keeps me sane. When everything is crazy I just think of a song and focus on it and it's so relaxing

I try to remember to count the wins instead of loses. Try to see what's there instead of what's not y'know. Instead of thinking about how terrible the day was I try to remember "I got through it and that makes me a pretty strong person."

I downloaded this amazing app that reminds me randomly through the day to come pack to my body and breathe into any negative feelings. It helps me stay mindful of who I am and where I am.

When I forget, my body usually gives me a reminder. ..staying grounded in self - care really helps me.

One thing I found helpful in order to stop being anxious... Make mistakes! Act a fool on purpose and eventually you'll no longer find it as hard as it was before to talk. I'm sure this won't help everyone BUT if you are able, you should try it.

Baby steps are very important.. i refuse to be a victim. A baby step is still way better than naught.i use a budha board to let negative thoughts and feelings disappear and become washed away .i wrote 'hatred' and noticed how actually offensive and ugly the word looked and made me feel..

Taking in as much detail as possible when I'm out on a trail whether walking or biking. It calms me and amazes me to see all the beauty that surrounds me.

I use the Headspace app for guided meditation series and the Relax feature in Pacifica. The Gratitude meditation is my favorite.
