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.

Have a great day, and take care of you!


  1. I love it. I too enjoy my pity pot sometimes and after a run it was like it didn't even exist.

  2. Definitely agree with the chocolate!!
