Bookmarked Therafind on Instagram: "I was stuck in freeze mode a very long time. Getting out of it isn’t easy, but it’s important to start slow & focus on one day at a time. Freeze is a coping mechanism we develop as a way to get through challenging or traumatic experiences. Freeze is often a response our body enters as a way to protect ourselves from feeling the pain and suffering. Some therapy approaches believe that in order to exit freeze you have to enter into a fight or flight. In every case, you need to find a way to get back into your body and ground yourself. Some tips include: - Slowly getting yourself out of isolation, connecting with your support system even if it’s starts with a text message or phone call - Bringing yourself back to present moment, you can use ice or cold water to do this when you’re dissociating - Try to identify your emotions even if you’re struggling with feeling them in moments you feel dissociated - Breathing & relaxation techniques . . . . . #mentalhealth #anxiety #trauma #unhealedtrauma #depression #stress #ptsd #complextrauma #cptsd #motivation #procrastination #wellness #therapy #therapist #mentalhealthmatters #socialanxiety #bpd #bipolar #dsm #adhd" (Instagram)
