Sometimes it’s hard to see past the next second, much less the next 5 minutes. On our website, You Matter, one of our bloggers keeps a list handy of some things that help her calm down or distract her for just a little bit, so that she can eventually make it to a safe place where she can deal with her emotions.
Read Alex’s full post here, or read and share her ideas listed below in our infographic. Some ideas are fun, quirky, healthy, and some are simply an example of great self-care. Try creating your own list, and keep it close to you. When things get tough, pick one item that makes you feel a little bit better, if only temporarily.
