I like to imagine that I'm watching a train go by and as it goes by I imagine putting my negative thoughts on it and watching them fade away in the distance.

Every day, I like to think up a Scoreboard of sorts, and try to reach 50 points every day. I give myself points when I do something I'm proud of or something that is beneficial to my mindset or health. Woke up on time? 5 points. Meditated? 5 points. I give myself more points for things I don't do often but should do often. Took a long walk? 10 points. Hung out with a friend? 10 points. Spent less than 2 hours on the internet? 20 points. It helps me motivate myself to go about my daily life.

Each day is like a new life for me. I can start fresh. If I'll make mistakes today, that's ok. Tomorrow is a beginning of a new life, too. I can start fresh. I have endless new chances.

It makes me sad that so many people feel like giving up each day because they are surrounded by the consumption of fear worry and doubt and all those together can be so much to handle at times. Please keep your heads up and do not let it get the best of you. You are stronger then that and there is so much more to live for then dying.

I remember how I wanted to die a few years back and how Im happy now. Just focus on the now.

Making lists of any little thing that I need to do and crossing those off. Even if it's "take out the trash" or "eat lunch" I put it on there because it fuels productivity

I'm deactivating my Facebook for Lent this year, in hopes that removing myself from the negativity that often comes with it will help me be more mindful of myself and the people and world around me ๐Ÿ’•

My counselor always tells me to count things like if I feel stressed and need to calm down I count (out loud if possible) 5 things I can see, 4 things I can hear, 3 things I can touch, 2 things I can smell, 1 thing I can taste. Or I try to find one object of every color in the room. It's hard to obsessively think and count colors at the same time so it's a really helpful tool for me

Sometimes I get way way to into my own head. "The thought spiral of doom". In those times I need to focus on breathing

I remind myself that soon the storm will past & that I'm stronger than whatever is making me feel upset.

It's not what you think it's what you see, feel taste, hear and do

I look forward to the future... even though I don't know what will happen, I imagine it'll be brighter than today.

Today, it snowed a lot and I listened to a really pretty and relaxing song while I walked a few blocks in the snowy weather and it felt like I was in a movie then I was like wait this is my life! And it's pretty!

I try to see the good in any situation. Even if I'm nervous or feeling scared. Lead with a positive mindset

Writing helps me SO much, as well as music and books.

Sometimes just leaving everything but your house keys (and the clothes you wear!) at home and going for a walk does the trick

I have two little mantras that I say to myself when I'm stressed or getting a panic attack and they are: "may I be safe" and "this too shall pass" This help me calm down.

Think exactly the action you're doing. For example when i'm walking and find that my mind was wandered off in an unhelpful way i'll start thinking "step, step, step, step" until i'm refocused

Art, writing, piano all help. Sometimes I'll make myself call someone to connect with people or get out of my own head for a bit. I meditate on my lunchbreaks. I'm starting to find my groove and trying to keep it simple.
