Hi Positive vibes89,
Great thread thank you 😊
Coping strategies for me……… I use the coping strategies I’ve learned through out my journey every day.
I also believe my coping strategies are skills and they are skills that I have been taught in therapy. They take practice but practice well worth it .
The coping strategies I learned were for my OCD…… which I have now recovered from …. I credit my coping strategies/ skills as something that keeps me recovered and out of my vicious OCD cycle.
Coping strategies/ skills
Meditation …… I credit this for getting me over line with my condition, it taught me that I’m not my thoughts but the watcher of my thoughts…. I do this on a daily basis and if I ever feel like I’m getting a bit caught up in my thoughts I can revert back to what I learned in meditation.
Mindfullness ……. I also do this daily… if an intrusive thought pops up I turn my attention to something in the present moment.
I practice gratefulness… this helps to bring positive emotions up in my body.
I practice reiki this makes me feel very calm…..
I like to go out for walks whilst being mindful.
I like to enjoy coffee with friends whilst out I make sure I put my attention on what my friends are saying and really enjoy the taste of my coffee whilst being mindful.
I also practice attention training….. even while do daily chores it keeps my attention on the present moment.
I have engrained these things into my daily routines and they really have paid off….. it just takes perseverance and practice. ❤️🦋
