Aug 3 -- What Helps You Get Through Meltdowns...
I'm not sure if this prompt is means personal meltdowns or your child's meltdowns, but I am going with the "personal meltdowns."
I generally overeat while having meltdowns...chocolate is always good.
A good cry is great. It releases a lot of tension. As long as this isn't something that happens too often, then it really can be cathartic.
I talk to friends and family that understand me and why I'm having the meltdown.
EXERCISE! When I decide I'm ready to get off my pity pot, the best thing for me is to go for a run or go to a Body Pump class at the Y. Even when I fight exercise, I always admit that I feel SO MUCH BETTER after I've pushed my body.
Watch a funny movie.
Jam out to the tunes...drown out everyone else!
I pet/cuddle with my doggies. They love me even when I'm in the middle of a full meltdown.
