Ways to Break the Cycle

  • Reflect on your wins: By remembering what success felt like and that it was possible, you can regain motivation for today
  • Engage in acts of Kindness: Regaining a sense of agency is helpful. One of the best ways to do this is by focusing outward on what you can do for others.
  • Set simple goals for yourself: Think about something you can achieve today. Then move on to something you can accomplish this week, and so on.
  • Take a deep breath before you respond: When presented with a challenge, your flight or fight response might kick in, leading you to respond from a place of fear.
