Any Tips for Stress?


#1

I hate going to my CPN with problems so I thought I would post here. How do you cope with stress? I have been finding it strenuous to even think some evenings. My mind feels strained all the time. My CPN told me that I am far too hard on myself.


#2

Sleeping helps reduce stress. Activities too. They keep you busy and take your mind off things.


#3

Yes I woke up at 4 am today, maybe why I have been worse.


#4

there are things you can do if you get stressed, when i get stressed i try and leave the stressful situation or distract myself, it really depends on the situation, if i get so bad i have an anxiety attack i will sit down and drink water, or get fresh air, you got to find what works for you :slight_smile:

A heavy punching bag and some padded gloves worked wonders for me as a youth.

In the UK you see your pdoc about twice a year and he overlooks your care while you see a CPN about once a month to catch up, get advice, talk about problems etc. I have not done therapy before, I may be soon but they said I should start work and have not too much on my plate for me to begin it.
