Arrow Thanks Mari!

www.MOODGYM.ANU.EDU.AU is web site based on Cognitive Behavior Therapy.
It walks you through some feeling/thought retraining if you are depressed or anxious.

thought it should be posted here too.

Heart Borrowed this from waves, reality orientation...

also what i would suggest is focusing on physical comfort. do all the five senses.

- touch different things:
-- pet your kitty cat. notice the softness of her fur. notice her breathing and warmth.
-- touch a warm blanket. squeeze part of it in your hand and notice the give. notice the softness.
-- touch a piece of wood or wooden furniture. notice the smoothness, or roughness of the wood, and any uneven spots in it.

- taste
-- sip water, or a some warm tea. eat a piece of bread. keep it simple. notice the wetness of the water, the texture of the bread, the taste, or lack of it.

- look at things
--- trees outside, maybe changing colors
--- again your kitty cat... focus on her face, her eyes, ears. how graceful a kitty cat is.

- hear things
--- noice the creatures outside might be making
--- the sound of the heating system if it is on
--- the sound of the wind or rain

- smell
--- a mild piece of soap or bubble bath, shampoo
--- spices... pick one that you like. cinnamon?
--- the pages an old book. these have a peculiar, old, strangely comforting smell. like something that is and always will be.

FINALLY:

wrap your arms around yourself, and squeeze. right - give yourself a hug. feel the safety of a hug. consider it on all of our behalf.

check in from time to time, when you can. and remember to breathe gently.

Heart

actually the touch orientation is something that came naturally to me. and all the examples i came up with or have used myself.

the hugging too is something i have done spontaneously and was afraid to admit for years. i was actually a little suspicious of it and it took my therapist telling me it was healthy before i suggested it to others.

However the 5 senses thing i got from a post of Mari's... it seemed like a more thorough version of my experience with touch. touch still seems like the strongest tether to me, but others may have better success with a different sense. certainly going through all of the senses, is a more thorough approach. one can then do more of the sense that is most comforting.

~ waves ~ credit goes to Mari for the 5 senses exercise.
