I created Mental Health Survival Guide to collect and share methods and insights that could help you grow. Dive in and find ones that work for you.
Self-regulate in order to excel
Whether you are trying to excel at work, care for your kids, or enjoy leisure time alone or with loved ones, self-regulation is an important skill. For example, by learning to visualize a peaceful scene, or become more aware of your thoughts you can skate past stress. To cope with depression, learn upbeat ways to stir up your enthusiasm. As you develop a wiser understanding of your own mental states, you can achieve a more centered, energetic, and satisfying experience.
Grow wiser about your own journey
When you face challenging times, you are often at the mercy of the way you always reacted before. In order to grow more resilient, learn how today’s experiences are built upon your earlier thoughts and emotions. By learning about the journey that brought you to this point in your life, you can gain new insights, wisdom and strength to face the journey ahead.
Writing your life story combines expressive arts with self understanding
By transforming your cluttered jumble of memories into a coherent, compelling shape, you have the potential to heal yourself. And as a bonus, your focus on the story of life will improve your understanding of people around you.
