Dee Dee's Cry presents Mental Health and Addiction

In 2020, DeeDee's Cry had a virtual discussion about addiction and mental health. Like all of our past virtual discussions, it's still relevant today. Hopefully, with funding, we can have these discussions in person. With the holidays upon us, this can be a challenging time for some. With challenging times, some choose to self-medicate with drugs, alcohol, or other forms of addiction. Watch or rewatch this powerful and much-needed discussion about addiction and mental health

Repeat after me:
I am not alone.
I will find my tribe.
I will heal from my pain.
I will stand in my power.
I will live my life.
Anything that's not permanent is tolerable. Only death is permanent which means that I can overcome any situation.

While it might be impossible to negate all stressors in your life, there are ways to manage it so that it doesn’t have as big of an impact on your overall health.

1. Exercise regularly.
Exercise has been shown to lower cortisol levels in your body, and it’s a great way to get your mind off of intrusive thoughts. Unwind near bedtime with an easy jog, a long walk or a relaxing yoga sequence. For the most stress-free experience, try these exercises outdoors as spending time in nature has also been shown to lower stress-levels. But don’t do any hard exercises right before bed. Since vigorous workouts take a while for your body to relax from and can make it difficult to sleep, save them for the morning.

2. Practice mindfulness.
Mindfulness means being aware and present in the moment. Simply focusing on the moment rather than in the future or the past can help reduce stress by breaking you out of a cycle of disruptive thinking. Think positively. What in your life is going well right now? What are you thankful for? Positive thoughts in the present help ground you. You can also meditate and try to clear your mind entirely, which has similar positive benefits.

3. Keep a journal.
Sometimes the simple act of writing something down can have a major effect on stress. If there’s something that’s bothering you when you’re trying to sleep, turn on a soft lamp, grab a bedside journal and jot down your thoughts.

4. Hang out with your pets and loved ones.
Spending time with pets, loved ones and close friends has been shown to significantly reduce stress. If you’ve had a stressful week, take a long walk with your dog or meet a friend for dinner after work. Just being in their presence can help your body and brain relax. Hint: It can be healthy to talk over what’s stressing you out with a friend or loved one, but don’t get stuck on it! Make sure you talk about more positive things going on in both of your lives as well.

5. Laugh every day.
The physical act of laughing has been shown to reduce stress. Even something as simple as a wide smile can send signals to your brain that it doesn’t need to be on high alert. If you’re feeling hyper-stressed, watch your favorite funny movie, see a comedy show, or visit a friend who always knows how to make you laugh.

Here are 6 questions you should be asking to check in with yourself:
1) How am I feeling?
An important question that will help you analyze your mood, you can even follow that up with a why. Finding out the how and the why will allow you to understand your triggers.

2) What is not working for me?
Figure out what you would like to change about your situation, are you really willing to make the change or does the thought of change make you uncomfortable? Figure out the way forward.

3) What is working for me?
This one is pretty straightforward but it allows you to be grateful for what you have in your life.

4) What do I need?
This also covers what you need from other people as well. And follow these needs up with action too.

5) What am I proud of?
No matter what be proud of yourself and how far you’ve come. It is an achievement in itself to want to check in with oneself. Feel free to list other accomplishments too.

6) What can I let go of?
Even if you figure out the answer to this, please try and understand that you will not be able to implement change overnight especially if emotions are attached. Give yourself time to let go of things.

When we work on mindful practices we often forget that checking in with oneself is one of the most important mindfulness practices. Some of the benefits of practicing this on a day-to-day basis are being well-adjusted, self-aware, compassionate, and reduced stress and anxiety.
