A LIST OF MY MENTAL HEALTH CONTROL MECHANISMS


Life can feel so overwhelming most days, and lately I have been trying to use these mechanisms to control my anxiety and maintain some balance. I thought why not share some of my bullet points with you. In no way, shape, or form am I a mental health expert, however, it is all a work in progress I guess!

• BE MINDFUL OF WHAT'S GOING ON

• CONTROL AND CONTAIN

• FOCUS ON YOU

• BREATHING EXCERCISES

• DON'T LET THE SITUATION CONTROL YOU

• CHANGE IS DIFFICULT

• PAUSE AND GIVE YOUR BODY TIME

• WRITE YOUR THOUGHTS DOWN, CROSS THEM OUT

JUST REMEMBER, WHEN OUR MIND PRECIEVES THREAT, ITS LOGIC DISSPPEARS....

  2. These are some great control mechanisms.
    When I did my Mental Health First Aid course, a few of these were there to help support someone in distress. Breathing is especially important.
    Great post!

  3. Hi, lovely! I totally love this list & it's really nice of you to share it with us! With mental health getting more and more talked about in social media and on blogs as well, I think it's so important for us to be sensitive about other people's feelings & what they're going through. This is such an amazing post! xx
