Coping Strategies and Well-Being

zebraThis section is dedicated to exploring coping strategies and improving well-being.  I share with you that which I have learned regarding the importance of identifying my needs and recognising my feelings; discovering healthier ways of meeting my needs and expressing my feelings; identifying the underlying beliefs and thoughts that impact my feelings; and tools for dealing with unpleasant feelings and intrusive and distressing thoughts, images and self-talk.  I also take a brief look at the following areas: Sleep (Why good sleep is so essential and some tips for a good night’s sleep); Journaling (The practice and benefits of journaling and how to go about beginning the process); Self-Nurture (A collection of strategies for self-care, nurture and self-soothing); Self-Harm (A compilation of ideas for alternatives to self-harm); and Goal Setting (The value of setting short-term, intermediate, and long-term goals and some tools to assist you in this).
