Today I wanted to talk about recognizing unhealthy coping skills. If we don’t recognize them how can we change for the better, right?
I made a handy dandy image for you to save or share!
There are some things we can do instead. Sometimes it takes real work and effort to make a change from unhealthy bad habits to good healthy ones. When it comes to self care and self love, if you have any unhealthy coping skills, it should be number one on your list to turn those into healthy ones! Your stress level will drop and you’ll feel better mentally and physically.
These are just some unhealthy and healthy coping skills. These lists are not all inclusive.
Don’t forget to take good care of yourself. You so deserve it!
May you be happy and well.
