We know the importance of developing a game plan when you start to feel a little wobbly. A therapist can help you fill up your tool kit with everything you need to feel supported, but sometimes it helps to hear from others what helps them as well. For #mentalhealthawarenessweek we asked our community on Instagram what their favorite coping tips were—here's what they had to say.
And though we encourage you to keep trying, we hope this list is something you can refer to and remember that one hundred people wanted to help you feel better in your body in mind. We all deserve our village of loved ones to lift us up when we need support.
