3 New Year's Resolutions for Trauma Patients
The holiday season and the New Year can be a trigger for those dealing with trauma, anxiety, and depression. The New Year often brings about a period of reflection, which can be hard for those impacted by trauma.
To help you get through this time of the year and have a better start to 2022, here are three New Year’s resolutions for trauma patients.
1 - Be Supportive Throughout Your Recovery Process
Recovering from trauma is a slow and windy road. There will be ups and downs, and it is essential to be patient and supportive with yourself throughout the process. Any setbacks are part of a recovery process. Do not be hard on yourself and rely on your support systems.
2 - Find Supportive Resources
You are NOT alone in your recovery journey, and there are many resources available to you. Spend some time researching support groups, trauma communities, and workshops. These support resources can be incredibly helpful.
3 - Focus on Empowering Yourself Daily
Feeling strong is often a challenging process for those dealing with trauma. However, discovering personal power and building confidence in yourself is one of the most important steps during the recovery process.
Consider joining a gym, spending time in nature, or practicing yoga. It is important to find methods for coping and developing empowerment.
