rerouting bad feels into better feels
clearly: my blood sugar was low as i forgot to eat, which made everything seem 1000000x worse, but by having the executive functioning skills to say “hey brain, you have to eat something and make your environment more comfortable before you have a meltdown” i was able to take steps to make myself feel better in the near future. already i can feel the sugar and food affecting my mood and walking me away from the cliff of panic.
this takes so much practice and conscious habit-forming to learn how to do, but self-soothing and creating failsafes is so essential for nurturing long-term wellbeing.
