My Coping toolbox

For a long time now I have had a coping tool box, I have a plastic box that I decorated with photos of family. The covered it with contact so that the pictures wouldnt get spoilt.

I then added things that comforts myself - self soothing the senses
I added for touch a velvet scarf
my stress ball
smooth pebble
wool pompom
plastercine
bubble wrap

For listening I added a Taizé chant
Guided relaxation disk
Guys and dolls musical
mini ipod

For Sight I added Pictures of family and friends
Some quotes that ive cut up and rearrange to make own quotes

For taste I added a flavoured teabag
Choccy bar
mini bag of haribos

For smell I added a Yankee Candle
hand lotion
my favourite perfume and a card with hubby's favourite aftershave

I also added some bit for distraction.. Suduko book
Cross stitch
adult colouring book
card making kit

I also keep a Diary in there that I add to it each time I use the box. Why and what has brought me to the box, the date and time too so I can look back and try avoid some of the causes.

Another thing I have in the back of my dairy is a mini crisis plan, who to contact if I cannot get through, eg samaritans, 111, family, friends etc

It does help me when I can get to it, I have a mini one for while Im out that will go in my bag
