[ ] Step 5 cultivate a coping skill that will not only help you in times of stress, but will also be the first step towards developing healthier thoughts.
Download a voice guided meditation app and start to cultivate the skill of mindfulness meditation. My favorite is Meditation Studio This app offers short meditations that use techniques like deep breathing, visualization, and flexible thinking to help you curb your negative thought patterns. I recommend meditating for at least 10-15 minutes a day. If you have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep, I recommend you do it at bedtime. In order to make it part of your daily routine, set a nightly alarm 10 min before you go to bed. Title the alarm, MEDITATION.
[ ] Step 6 Invest your time and money into becoming emotionally healthy.
Schedule therapy as recommended by Amy. She typically prefers for you to have therapy scheduled no later than your 3rd appointment at Morrison Clinic.
[ ] Step 7 Make sure Amy has your latest physical exam and bloodwork AND learn about the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
*Go to the lifestyle changes page and general health header for the information on the recommended annual physical exams and blood work that you need to have faxed to the office.
*Take time to read this page and follow the links or even better add to your Pinterest board so that it is easy to reference and stay organized.
