Being able to harness a feeling of calm is very beneficial. If you are struggling with addiction or mental health issues, even small situations or emotions can feel overwhelming. Those overwhelming times can lead to isolation, missed opportunities, heightened anxiety, and many other situations. If you are struggling with trauma, mental health issues, or addiction, know that you are not alone. Reaching out for help is the best way to put yourself first and face your challenges head-on. As you begin your journey to recovery, here are few tips to help you get started in finding your inner calm. 


Observe and Label Emotions


Being able to observe what you are feeling is powerful. Label what you feel when you feel it; this will help you figure out what is causing you to feel that way. From there, you can determine what you can do to feel better and more content. 


Deep Breathing and Walking


Breathing exercises can be a great activity to calm your mind and body.  When you combine breathing exercises and activities such as walking, many people find they can discover their inner peace and calm. Everyone is unique, so learning what your mind and body respond best to is the key to success. 


Find Your Balance


Practicing mindfulness can be one way to calm your mind. Staying in the moment and acknowledging feelings and emotions as they happen can help you to work through stress and anxiety. 


Try Different Activities


Yoga, meditation, coloring, and painting are just a few different activities that people find helpful to work through strong emotions. When you can find an outlet for bottled-up emotions, you can begin to find peace and calm. It can be challenging for many struggling with mental health issues to know what activities to try or where to start to find that inner calm. Try new activities and experiences; you may be surprised by what helps you.
