50 ways to deal with a crisis

If you are on this planet long enough, you will be confronted with a crisis. One that will just appear out of no where, trust me you won’t see it coming, cause if you had you would have blocked it immediately. When in crisis mode initially you may feel as if you are falling apart, everything seems impossible, and there is no way out, trust me there is.

So I compiled a list of “50 things to do in a crisis”…

  1. CRY- as much as you want to, especially in the beginning.
  2. Have at least one person you can trust.
  3. Yoga- lots of it…hip openers are really good.
  4. Have an inner circle that can help you.
  6. Take long hikes.
  7. Take long hot baths with bath salts or bubbles.
  8. Educate yourself about your crisis.
  9. Stay busy- keep up your routine.
  10. Get an adult coloring book.
  11. Know that the silent tears will soon dry up.
