With all of the trauma we’ve endured this week, it’s important to talk to someone you trust, take time to take care of yourself, and unplug from Social Media and the news if necessary. PTSD is not just a Veteran disorder. With all that’s happening, it’s a lot for all of our systems. Take care of you.
It’s more important now than ever to take care of our bodies and our minds. Talk to a friend or family member that you can trust, or seek professional help if you need.
Unplug – sometimes taking a break is very, very healthy.
Stop watching the videos. It’s important to be informed, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed, take a break.
Practice self-care. Read, sleep, take a bath, get outside, pray. Do what helps you to feel grounded and centered.
Be around supportive and loving environments.
It can be easy to forget about you with all that’s happening but it’s so important to remember your needs so that you can make decisions and take actions from a healthy place in all areas of your life.
And if you aren’t in the U.S., you may be experiencing grief or feelings of overwhelm from something else. Take a step back and take some time for you.
Practice #selflove even in the hard times.
