      I create a list of things want to learn or work on BEFORE. So when I’m manic I go to it and try to hyper focus on that instead of destructive behaviors. Also boxing or martial arts or destroy stuff (that needed to be destroyed) so I don’t have so much pent up rage and energy to do dumb shit and it humbled you when realize you can’t walk around doing crazy things without consequences. Keep busy so I feel productive and stay on track instead of mess up my life. I also ask myself am I still going to be happy with this decision or starting or having done this when I’m depressed again and have no energy? That helps a lot but probably the hardest to do because I don’t want to think about that. Also prioritize responsibilities- before I can do that I have to go grocery shopping, cook, exercise, get this done and then I can do that… usually calms me to the point where I don’t feel like doing what I wanted to in the first place that probably wasn’t a good decision. Lot of mind tricks and avoid people that don’t know I’m manic and will encourage me to do things I know I shouldn’t or normally wouldn’t. Best way is prepare and catch it before it gets out of control- set up obstacles and rules for yourself when manic before you’re at that point.
