  • Coping strategies, even the most “unhealthy” ones were formed for our survival. We turned to them at times we needed them to get through. Now you see there were more options available. You recognize the downsides and long term impacts. Those old coping strategies no longer serve you. You have other things you turn to when life gets hard. And that’s amazing. Allow that realization to wash over you. I no longer need to resort to that in order to survive. 
Also though, in my practice, I see people who are really hard on their past selves for the ways they got through. And when things get especially difficult, people are similarly hard on themselves for even looking at that old coping strategy with a little bit of longing. Yes, remind yourself of all the reasons why you don’t want to go down that path again. Yes, remember all the other ways of coping you have worked so hard to cultivate. But the reason why you resorted to that in the first place was because it worked. Even in the short term. It worked. It got you through. I’m so thankful for that. It’s okay to miss an old coping strategy. It got you through the most difficult times. When it didn’t feel like there were other options. When you didn’t have the support you have now. Hold that person with tenderness. They were just trying to survive.

  • Stress is associated with too much: too many pressures, too many demands. Burnout is about not enough: lack of motivation, feeling empty, without hope or care.
.
Things have been off lately. At first I thought it was stress, too many things to manage! But as I was talking to another therapist I realized it was a problem of not enough: not enough motivation, enthusiasm and creativity...I’ve been tiptoeing around burnout for a couple of weeks now.
.
You see, therapists aren’t exempt from the human experience. We most certainly don’t have it all together. What we might have is a heightened sense of awareness, a better idea of when things are off and how to adjust/seek help.
.
If any of these bullet points sound like you, here’s your awareness: all of these things impact your emotional, physical, and mental health. It is not something that just goes away on it’s own, it’s something that we have to manage.  This is your reminder to check-in and take care of yourself.
.
With that said, I’m signing off for the weekend 🙋‍♀️I’m exhausted. Be compassionate, meet yourself where you are at, no amount of busyness is worth mental peace.
⁉️

  • It’s hard to unlearn things, things that we have used as coping tools for years.
Living with mental illness is complex, and once you’ve been in therapy for long enough you become self aware of these actions you know are not healthy but feel incredible pull to continue or carry out said actions because what else is there? We have known nothing else other than this way of coping. 
Most of my coping tools I’ve had in the past have definitely been multiple different ways of self harm and self sabotage and working on that is the hardest part.
Sometimes I accept way less than I deserve because it’s attention, it’s validation and it feels good 
So I accept it as something good when I know it’s not, when I know that I am worthy of more 
And me and my friend were discussing how this is actually one of the hardest parts of bpd, is setting boundaries for yourself and not allowing your past coping tools and behaviours to take over again.
It’s constant management living with any illness, it’s learning and awareness and it’s hard work.
I’m still a work in progress with my mental health, I’ve taken steps forward and steps back and forward again
Any kind of step back doesn’t erase the work I’ve put in though because I have made a lot of progress.
I’m managing to catch myself more and reach out to the people I need at that time and I’m proud of myself for that. I’m putting into place healthy coping skills now and as hard as it is I have the best people helping me 
I’m incredibly lucky to have the friends I do 💛

  • Hell yeah ❤️
Question of the day- 
What are you grateful for and why? 
What makes your heart happy? What place makes you smile and laugh unconditionally?
Once you tell me what it is then take yourself there and realize you have purpose and beauty all around you.

  • Even on vacation I’ve felt this desire to do. To go & see, to fill my days with things, but as we get closer to the end, I’m reflecting back and my favorite moments were the ones where we slowed down. Today was gorgeous and we planned to walk the coastline, but we both woke up wanting to cancel all the plans. I felt guilty— I’m here, I should get out for that walk and experience the culture. But today has been another one of those “favorite days.” We headed out to the store to snag milk for coffee and food to cook at home for the day, just to slink back inside for the rest of the day. We binge watched Suits on Netflix, we had dinner in bed, and the guilt faded away as contentment settled in. I’m trying to come up with a new mantra for when I feel the need to fill my calendar with things to do rather than slowing down and letting things go unplanned.

Mantras have been very helpful for me in learning to live without anxiety, helpful as I’ve worked to feel enough, and have been crucial this past year as I moved from food and exercise as punishment and reward to working on listening to my body. Mantras can help me leave my feelings brain, find my calm, and live with intention.

Can you help me brainstorm a mantra for this challenge? Something I can turn to as a reminder that slowing down plays a huge role in my joy. Please drop them below! Thank you 🧡

  • Hugging is definitely a powerful way of healing. Research shows that hugging is extremely effective at healing sickness, disease, loneliness, depression, anxiety and stress.

Research shows a proper deep hug, where the hearts are pressing together, can benefit you in these ways:

The nurturing touch of a hug builds trust and a sense of safety. This helps with open and honest communication.

Hugs can instantly boost oxytocin levels, which heal feelings of loneliness, isolation, and anger.

Holding a hug for an extended time lifts one's serotonin levels, elevating mood and creating happiness.

Hugs strengthen the immune system.

Hugging boosts self-esteem. From the time we're born our family's touch shows us that we're loved and special. The associations of self-worth and tactile sensations from our early years are still imbedded in our nervous system as adults. Hugs, therefore, connect us to our ability to self love.

Hugging relaxes muscles. Hugs release tension in the body. Hugs can take away pain; they soothe aches by increasing circulation into the soft tissues.

Hugs teach us how to give and receive. There is equal value in receiving and being receptive to warmth, as to giving and sharing. Hugs educate us how love flows both ways.

Hugs are so much like meditation and laughter. They teach us to let go and be present in the moment.

Hugs encourages empathy and understanding. “We need four hugs a day for survival. We need eight hugs a day for maintenance. We need twelve hugs a day for growth.” #myschoolpsychologistinc #psychologist #childpsychologist #miamipsychologist #psychologicalevaluation #intervention #educationalintervention #behaviorist #psychoeducationalevaluation #anxietyrelief #depressionrelief #copingskills #hugsmakeeverythingbetter #hugs #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #mentalhealthawareness #miamiflorida
