    I change what I’m thinking about. I put or picture myself somewhere beautiful.

    Staying busy helps

    I just remind myself that it's not the same situation and after the fact, if it turns out okay, I keep that in mind for the next time.

    Deep breaths and then I usually call someone for a distraction until I feel safe again or I am somewhere I can work through why I was triggered.

    I try to avoid triggers, but when they are unavoidable, I use mindful breathing, nature walk, self talk, distraction, and if I’m home, some snuggles with my dogs.

    I'm currently going though ptsd specific counseling and the first thing they go over is basically to avoid avoidance. I've found that a physiological sigh also helps greatly. It was discovered in 1930 and acts as a similar system reset like the ice bucket challenge but for stress.
