Healthy Coping Mechanisms

You have more power than you think. Sometimes we don’t know how strong we are until our backs are against a wall. Mental illnesses cause us to feel drained, hopeless and a lack of energy but this is a battle that so many of us are fighting. We will prevail. Coping is essential to healing. Healthy coping is key. Taking the first step for me was the hardest. My motivation were the three little people who look up to Mommy for everything. By taking the following small but positive steps day by day, you’ll soon soon lift the heavy fog of depression and find yourself feeling happier, healthier, and more hopeful again. Reach out and stay connected. -Build support from people who care and can be a safe haven. I’ve mentioned this before but my village is indestructible. -Find a new hobby or engage in social activities. I recommend trying something you’ve never tried or experienced before. My personal outlet is running. I’m able to clear my head and I feel so free and relaxed afterwards. -Support others. One of my healthiest coping mechanisms is helping others going through the same battle. Lean on one another. You may learn a big or two. -Build HEALTHY relationships, regardless is platonic or romantic. -This personally did not work for me but I have had friends to join support groups. This can reduce your sense of isolation. Loving yourself changes who you attract. Do things that make you feel good long term. Practice relaxation techniques and most importantly REST. Together we can heal. Together we will conquer this battle. Together we will win! Love you all. Chat soon. -Jasi💗
