Self Soothing Techniques: Phase One

Today we want to introduce a couple techniques that are designed to “self soothe”. We will break down core senses through out the months to come on our blog. 
There are a multitude of stressors that surround us in our daily lives, but imagine adding a child who has cancer to the mix. Today we would like you to set a few minutes aside to invest in soothing one of your senses: touch. 
The following coping mechanisms provided by About Health are designed to target and alleviate our touch sense:
  • Soaking in a warm bath
  • Getting a massage
  • Relaxing in the warmth of the sun
  • Stretching
  • Going for a swim
  • Changing into comfortable clothes
  • Playing with an animal
