There are a number of useful coping strategies but you may find some more useful than others. It is down to personal choice.
To name a few:
Keep a diary of your moods and meds
Have a bath in candlelight and just lie there, chill and clear your mind
Call a friend and have a chat.
Donâ€™t like to chill? Then keep busy, make a start on long neglected tasks.
Revisit a hobby, maybe you used to love to paint or write.
Write a letter or an email to someone.
Go out with friends, have a laugh see what life really has to offer. Maybe stay with one of them or a family member at particularly hard times.
Do something active, go for a walk or run. If itâ€™s late or you donâ€™t want to go out run up and down the stairs or dance around the house.
Play a game or something to cheer yourself up. (Look at the fun pages on the website)
Treat yourself to something and make yourself feel special as you are!
