      I write down my feelings and then turn them into poetry.

      My 6 cats (yes I'm a crazy cat lady), listening to music and hot showers

      Cold showers daily, I noticed the resistance around my shoulders and neck at first. The water is so cold for the first few weeks, but that was refreshing as I felt present and in the moment. In time I started to look forward to the discomfort. The afterglow is awakening and the dopamine hit lasts a good few hours. Then one day, they just aren't uncomfortable anymore, the cold feels warm. I've grown my capacity to endure, or as someone once said "find comfort in the uncomfortable". I love walking at night in winter, on the moors or up mountains, the more harsh the weather the better the feeling. I did this before cold showers, guess this my mindfulness.

Some people cope with their mental health issues by understanding that they are different due to their brain rather than something being wrong with them as a person. Others find relief in doing crafts, playing with animals, talking to people, and going for short walks to get anxious energy out. Therapy, journaling, mind mapping to analyze thoughts, exercise, prayer, and listening to sermons/podcasts/Bible apps are also mentioned as coping mechanisms. Some individuals make time for themselves every day, do things they find joy in, and things that make their body and mind relax. Video journaling, mental health counseling, and faith are also cited as helpful.
