      Breathing. I thought it was crap for so long till I looked at the science. I started practicing more and it helps so much. Moving and distraction as well. But don't let the distraction turn into avoidance! ♡ . I'll call friends or family, spend time with pets, listen to music, clean, shower. Do something good for myself or sometimes it's best to just cry it out ♡♡♡

        @VirgoMamiAu very similar to mine. I also do ASL because I have to focus on the signs and not what im triggered by, but everything else is what you mentioned

      singing songs that my dad would sing to me in the car or listening to a specific song that sounds like it was made on a music box

      I would crying. Some of my memories are triggers and if I catch myself thinking about one at work I cant just leave or go anywhere. So I will do my job and silently cry, even ugly cry, because it feels like I'm qt least letting something out. If possible I do find a quiet safe place to cry as well.
