Coping Skills

Saturday, January 26, 2013

emoticon Day 24 Binge Free and Day 4 Prozac

This week has been a VERY emotional week. I am so proud of myself for using healthy coping skills when feeling: Sad, Hurt, Angry, Frustrated, Fearful, Bored, Tired, Etc...

Deep Breathing w/ eyes closed...
Listen to Music
Go for a drive
Sit at the library
Sit in basement room
Stretch / Light hand weights
Text Friends
Email Friends
Call Friends
Spark-People Blogs / Message Boards
Walk / Walk on treadmill with music
Lay Down and Rest
Read Scriptures / 12 Steps
Think of Happy-Quote
Repeat this too will pass
Strong and Healthy Woman
Thankful For...
Daily Miracles
Drink Water
Chew Gum
Pray, Pray, Pray, Pray... Just Listen as I pray... Just say "Dear Heavenly Father"
Like the essential Oils
Think I like the Prozac
If I am really hungry... baby carrots
Listen to Whitney and Ben
JUST BE... Cry

These have helped me out a lot this week. Friends and Family support are going to get me through this difficult time. And of course Heavenly Father and his endless love and forgiveness.

    Also, I think that going outside for a few minutes helps.

I know that it is COLD but the fresh air is quite nice, especially today. The air outside it getting better and it looks quite nice outside right now.
