I’m still on Distraction but I want to try each type of Distraction one its own to I don’t feel overwhelmed. I’m trying things out for about a week so I can try and learn it. I don’t want to get ahead of myself.
The workbook suggests that when I start feeling stressed I should pay attention to someone else. I have selected 2/3 of their suggestions and made 1 of my own.
- Do something for someone else.
- Think of someone you care about.
- Go online and comment on blogs (my idea)
I have already done my idea before. There have been times where I have been stressed but I come on and read what some of you have written and I’ll comment back. I have a chance to stop thinking about what’s going on in my head and focus on what’s happening to all of you!
I don’t think I’ve ever thought about doing something for someone else when I’ve gotten stressed. I usually spend that time telling myself not to fall into the black hole and I push people around to make sure it doesn’t. I do like helping people and doing nice things so hopefully I can remind myself quickly next time to try it.
We’ll see how it goes!
