      I usually listen to music very loudly in my ears, or watch some YouTube. Usually my coping is recharging by stimulating my brain?

      When I'm overwhelmed with an emotion I try to isolate and let that feeling out, usually through singing or making art. I use digital art and just have at it, using whatever colors and brushes feel right

      Allowing yourself to explore a new topic or hobby you've been thinking aout without judging yourself for liking somthing or being bad at something at first

      Journaling, music, herbal tea.

      Art! Doesn’t matter if you’ve never drawn anything more than a stick figure—drawing is proven to be an effective coping mechanism (even if you just do a little 5-10 min doodle a day or when ur feeling stressed)

      Dancing for no one but yourself. Music blaring not caring about what you look like. No mirrors or open windows

      Lay down and let yourself feel all the things you try to ignore. Don't do anything else, don't get up no matter how bad it is (unless for safety ofc) and just let yourself experience and process what's on your mind

      Cold. Or hot. Cinnamon candy and those single use ice pads in my purse on a normal basis. Keeping my panic attacks to a minimum.

      Going outside for 10 minutes and just taking in nature

          @Foxy96 Kangaroo care is when you hold your baby to your bare chest so your baby has direct skin-to-skin contact with you. But it helps adults too. Skin on skin helps. And listening to someone heartbeat

        @max What kind of Rage room?

          @Foxy96 it's like a place where you go to break and destroy things to get any emotions out that weighs you down. People usually talk after that happens about why they felt that way
