Be your own therapist.
You can be your own coach and therapist. Here’s a few tips:
1) Ask “why”. Stop. Breath. Ask yourself gently and with compassion why you are feeling, thinking, behaving the way you are. Just let the answer land without judgement.
2) Become aware. Know your patterns. Get familiar with how you respond. Notice what you notice about yourself. Ask yourself how you feel. Focus on what thoughts arrive.
3) Know your needs. What sets you up for success? Helps you operate at your best? Feeds your best self? Sleep. Movement. Food. Connections. Get serous about meeting your own needs.
4) Lean into learning. Read. Listen. Watch. Learn about yourself. About human behaviour. About social influences and society.
