What Can I Do Between Therapy Sessions To Feel Better?
What You Can Do Between Therapy Sessions
Outside of therapy sessions, there are a number of things you can do to feel better.
Taking care of your physical needs is especially important, so make sure to get enough sleep and eat nutritious meals. Exercise can also be very beneficial, as it can help to improve mood and reduce stress. Additionally, engaging in activities that you enjoy, such as reading, listening to music, or spending time with friends or family(if that is not stressful to you), may help to lift your spirits and provide a sense of comfort. Practice being kind to yourself and others by challenging your negative self-talk. Replace negative thoughts and self-criticism with positive affirmations. Lastly, practicing relaxation techniques such as deep breathing, mindfulness, Qigong, Tai chi, breathing exercises, or yoga can help to reduce anxiety and improve coping skills. Keeping a journal can also be very helpful, as it gives you a space to examine your thoughts and feelings.
