Exercise - Exercising is important for keeping your body active and getting your endorphins flowing. Working out can help shut your brain off for a while.
Writing - Write something down every day so that you’re getting some of the mess out of your brain and onto paper. Journaling is hugely helpful in helping get yourself back on track.
Connecting - Reach out to friends and strangers, and get yourself a good group of people to surround yourself with. You never have to do everything alone.
Reading - Books and articles are a great way to keep your mind working and show you experiences of people who have been where you are.
Forgiving - Try not to hold onto quite so much of pain that you’re harboring. Forgive yourself for damage you’ve caused, and forgive others for things they’ve done as well.
