Day 1, done! I just got done reading chapter 1 of my DBT Skills Workbook. I decided I’m going to read one chapter a week, each Monday. Then the rest of the week I will spend a little time just going over the information and doing the activities in the book and really absorbing that chapter’s information. Good stuff 🙂 This week’s chapter discusses different coping techniques. I have to come up with a solid list of distraction techniques or a “distraction plan” for when my overwhelming emotions hit, and a couple of other plan lists that I can do to soothe myself when I’m home, and when I’m out of the home. There are lots of good ideas in the book.
I am going to do some meditation here shortly which will just consist of praying tonight.
I already have my alarm set for early tomorrow morning to go for a run. I have my running clothes all out and ready.
Lookout world, Mandi is coming! 😀
As usual, I will keep you posted!
