If you find yourself stuck in past trauma, know that feeling that way is quite common. Trauma affects everyone differently; however, if untreated, trauma tends to impact current daily life in many ways. Learning to work through your past is important in order to move on from it. Work with a mental health professional to better understand how your past is affecting your current daily life. As you begin that healing journey, here are a few tips to get you started working on letting go of your past.

Develop Mindfulness

Staying in the moment will help you to acknowledge what you feel as you feel it. When you can stay in the moment, it can help you to learn what your triggers are and notice your patterns. One necessary part of growth is understanding what you are feeling and why you are feeling it.

Practice Self-Care

Self-care is crucial as you work through treatment. Self-care can look different for everyone. For some people, it could be spending time in nature; for others, it could be quiet time reading a novel. Learn what works best for you. When you can practice self-care, you can begin to learn what your mind and body need from you to be able to work through past trauma.

Acknowledge Your Feelings

Acknowledge what you are feeling. Many find that journaling can be helpful for this task. Emotions and feelings are often complex, with many feelings all tied together. Work with a mental health professional to determine what you are feeling and how your past has influenced those feelings.

Work Through Trauma

Letting go of the past can be extremely challenging to do without first working through past trauma. Past trauma can directly impact your mental health and overall well-being. Understanding how past trauma is affecting your current health is a great first step in moving forward.

Letting go of your past is an essential part of moving forward and focusing on your goals. This can be challenging. Try to practice self-care in whatever way best helps you find your center and recharge. You may also want to work on mindfulness and acknowledging what you are feeling.
