How to Deal With Feeling Out of Sorts

No comments

I didn’t sleep well last night. Sleep is crucial with my type of CP. When I woke up, I was out of sorts. Tears were close for no other reason than to let go of frustration. I know it probably seems like I’m always positive, but I do have tough days in general and with my condition. The most important part is to take days like today and turn them into positives. I thought I would share some of what I do to make myself less out of sorts with you all because I know I’m not the only one who feels out of sorts now and then. I consider the suggestions below a part of my self care.

  1. Taking a hot shower to help relax tense muscles
  2. Reaching out to some of my chosen siblings to talk out how I feel
  3. Writing down how I feel in my journal
  4. Stretching to get my body moving even when I don’t do full out exercise
  5. Cuddles with Coco (my dog)
  6. Laughing at Coco’s antics that I think she does just to hear me laugh
  7. Having a cup of coffee or hot chocolate
  8. Taking some deep breathes to help relax as well
