Distractions

Ok, so here’s a list I have in my crisis plan and on my wall of distractions. These are ones I personally find helpful, however they may not apply to you. Distractions should never be a task too large as it could potentially make you feel worse i.e if you were planning a party and decided to use it as a distraction it could make you feel worse and only heighten your emotions. Small, often pointless tasks are best.

  • Puzzles
  • Crosswords
  • Books
  • Working out
  • Making bracelets
  • Facebook games
  • Finding recipes for my food scrapbook
  • Stretches
  • Drinking tea
  • Making cards
  • Writing poems
  • Painting my nails
  • Face masks
  • Scrap booking
  • Listening to music, very loudly
  • Scribbling
  • Calling a friend
  • Coloring
  • Making a poster
  • Having a bubble bath
  • Going for a walk
  • Making a ‘to do’ list and crossing them off one by one
  • Listening to what is going on around me i.e mindfulness
  • Listing important people in my life and describing them with one word
  • Making vlogs
  • Burning incense
  • Throwing eggs at trees
  • Writing a letter
  • Trying to blow big bubbles with bubble gum
  • Customizing clothing

This list is not inclusive, but it’s a start - find what works for you!
