Coping Skills That Helps My Mental Health
As someone who has been diagnosed with bipolar type one, major depressive disorder, general anxiety disorder, and social anxiety. I have tried and used many coping skills. Here are the skills I use daily that help me:
Crocheting has helped me so much! I make blankets, hats, scarves, and doilies. It’s really easy to learn and you can do it sitting on the couch. Really fun and helps with my anxiety.
I LOVE writing! I love to write: Christian Devotionals, Nonfiction, Poetry, YA Romance, Christian Fiction, Christian Nonfiction, and NA romance.
You can find all my book on my Wattpad account which is:
I also love to journal my feelings which has also helped me with my mental health.
Writing is my passion and I love to it. I am currently in college studying writing and English.
Who doesn’t love to read a good book? I love reading YA Romance books or Christian Nonfiction book. Reading really helps me take my mind off my problems.
4. Watching TV
I love to watch funny shows like: “The Big Bang Theory,” “New Girl,” and “Baby Daddy.” I also watch with my family: “NYPD Blue,” “Forged In Fire,” and “God Friended Me.”
Just pick you a show and start watching! I also love to crochet while I watch tv!
5. Playing my piano and singing
I LOVE to sing! It’s one of my passions. Playing the piano and singing is so much fun and so relaxing. So if you love music, give it a try! My Dad and Sister play the guitar but I prefer the piano.
6. Petting and playing with cats.
My cat Little is my therapy animal. I love to pet and play with him. If you live alone and have the money, get a pet! They are so worth it. My cats bring me so much joy!
