Glitter jars - 
I was taught about glitter jars during my time as an inpatient. I learnt the magic of glitter during a self-soothe class as part of an emotional coping skills lesson.
There’s no science, no counting, no acceptance and no forceful methods involved in the alteration of your emotions during use of the glitter jar - just distraction. 
Making a glitter jar is simple. You will need:
1 jar (with a lid of course!)
1/10 vegetable oil
9/10 water
glitter - lots of!
food colouring
anything else shiny
Add the water and vegetable oil together. Add a few drops of food colouring, all of the glitter and anything else shiny. Put the lid on (tight!) and shake it.
When you want to cut / binge / scream / cry, shake the glitter jar and watch until the glitter is settled. It’ll calm you and hopefully the emotion will pass.

Reblogging for my followers. I made one of these and it is honestly so calming to just watch it.
