Coping With Body Memories

-Breathe
-Remember it will pass
-Focus on the feeling and getting it away
-Remember that that feeling actually isn't happening in the moment
-Go to a private place and meditate
-Replay what happened and then remember that it is all over. Remember
that this can be triggering.
-Focus on your surroundings
-Focus on other sensations (hold an ice cube, drink hot tea, chew gum,
or exercise)
-Talk or write about what feelings/memories are brought up by the body memories
-Use positive self-talk to get through the feelings
-Repeat affirmations
-Do grounding exercises: name 5 things you see, 5 things you smell, 5
things you feel, 5 things you hear, and 5 things you taste (Note:
don't do the senses that are triggering in that moment)
-Do something nice for your body like taking a bath, putting on lotion
or a nice smelling perfume, or wear comfy clothes
-Write a letter to your body venting your feelings
-Stretch
-Ask your body what it needs
-Aroma Therapy
