Self Help

The team here at LETSS have developed some self-help resources

Daily Schedule 
It can be helpful to write up a schedule of activities that you can do today. A daily schedule can be motivating if you are feeling depressed – it can help keep you active. Likewise, a daily schedule can assist if you are feeling overwhelmed – it can help you plan and prioritise. Remember to put in at least one self-care activity each day!

Gratitude List
Sometimes it can be helpful to think about all of the things that we are grateful for in life, no matter how big or small! We might be grateful to pat our dog, drink a tea, or have a nice conversation with someone. List all of those things that you are grateful for.

Positive Data Log
A positive data log can help you to rebalance your thinking. Write down all the things that are positive in your life at the moment. When you are thinking negatively or unhelpfully, it can be helpful to read through your positive data log to help to balance your thoughts.

Self Compassion Journal
Try keeping a daily self-compassion journal for one week (or longer if you like.) In your journal, write down anything that you felt bad about, anything you judged yourself for, or any difficult experience that caused you pain. (For instance, perhaps you got angry at car that pulled in front of you or perhaps you were short with your friend.) For each event, use mindfulness, a sense of common humanity, and kindness to process the event in a more self-compassionate way.

Sensory Modulation
Calming sensations may be helpful when we are feeling anxious, overwhelmed and stressed, whereas alerting sensations may be helpful when we are feeling depressed, lethargic and unmotivated. The following worksheet has examples which are categorized as calming or alerting to help you brainstorm what strategies may be helpful for you.

Challenging Anxious Thoughts
When we are experiencing distressing thoughts, it can cause us to feel anxious. However, just because we are feeling anxious and experiencing a distressing thought, it does not always mean that it reflects the reality of the situation and it does not always mean the thought is true. That is why it can be helpful to reflect and find evidence for against and for the thought to gain a more balanced and realistic
perspective.

Relationship Building 
Sometimes, in our relationships whether it be a family member, friend, or partner, we get so caught up in our own lives and problems that we forget to appreciate those close to us! That is why sometimes it can be great to take a few minutes to learn more about the ones you love and remind yourself of some of the reasons why you appreciate and love them!

Focus of Control 
It can be overwhelming when there is a lot going on in the world. During these times it can be challenging to focus on what we can control in our day to day lives. Writing down what is in and out of our control can help create a clear divide in what we can influence.
