when i feel myself zoning out and dissociating (depression, anxiety, etc.) i count to 12 forwards and then backwards, and then i spell out each number while counting. it just gets me to come back down from whatever!

I remind myself of how loving I am. That’s the one thing I know. So loving that even though I’m so hurt, I still love deeply and openly

When I catch myself having a negative thought spiral, I make myself look for three things to be grateful for or read inspiring quotes. It’s taking time to reprogram my brain which holds 30 years of negative thinking but I’m getting there.

I'm trying to be more mindful of the fact that my life isn't that bad and could be worse.

Crafting (or anything creative) is really great for easing anxiety. Crocheting has been really calming and rewarding for me!

I remember that the past is gone, the future is undefined and all I can do is be the now

Crying is okay. It is okay to feel things.

I remind myself how incredibly strong willed I actually am. I think about what I’ve done and the decisions I’ve made, and at the end of the day, I have always been in control. Despite how unsure my mind makes me, my actions are determined.

I watch documentaries about people who have gone through struggles and made it out stronger than before or powerful movies. 💪🏽

Listen and be present in conversation. Hear someone out if they’re upset with you. Pay attention to how your actions affect others. Stay aware

Just because you did something wrong someday it doesn't mean you will do it again. You just have to keep in mind that it's up to you! So if you don't want it to happen again it won't!

I finally know what “pay attention to your surroundings” means. During my trail yesterday, I occasionally was immersed in my thoughts and my attention was on my sad feelings and bad memories. But when I was out of the zone, I saw the trees, happy people passing by, happy dogs, and the clear water. I felt very happy and was wondering why I was in that zone before. So I guess I just need more control of myself and avoid being dragged to the darkness of my own thoughts

Get a good nights sleep and focus your thoughts on that which is good and noble.

I have a sound machine and I put the sound on beach and I turn on my fan and wear fuzzy clothes and meditate and just focus on my thoughts.

I remind myself that nothing is permanent, that includes anxiety, depression. It will pass.

I talk to this person I know who’s been through worse then me, asking her how her day was and making sure she’s doing fine in life.

Whenever you have bad thoughts about something even worse happening just remember it's your brain's silly way to make it look like what your going through is not as bad as what your thinking. It's important to replace those thoughts with a funny memory or make up a scenario in your mind that makes you laugh. Drown out those bad thoughts with good ones. Interrupt yourself to create better memories

I make sure I’m fully present when interacting with others. People don’t realize how much they’re on their phones when they’re supposed to be hanging out with other people. I’m mindful of my usage and think to myself “do I really need to do this right now” when I have the inpulse to look something up or write/text something I just remembered.
