    Suffering Stress in Little Space

     

    I have been having something of a hard time dealing with stress, even when I'm in little space. Therefore I thought this would be a good opportunity to cover what I actually do and what we all do when we're using little space to deal with stress.

     

    One thing I particularly tend to do is use my paci. I try to focus entirely of the feeling of it, and I might chew on it to avoid biting my fingers or grinding my teeth. It works for a while, but only for so long. After a while I find my stress coming back to me. I'll try to cuddle my stuffie and hide in it, but I don't always have it on me. I rarely have the materials to color on me, but when I do I can try that for a while. This only seems to work if there isn't anyone in the room with me and the cause of the stress is far away. Other than that, there isn't much more I can do. 

     

    So what do you guys do to help with stress? Is there other things you do that might be more effective? Or perhaps there are ways that you do similar things that you think I should try? What tips can you give to others suffering a similar problem? Let's start a discussion and talk to each other.

    I’m just now finding that getting into little space is a huge stress reliever for me but also having the occasional caregiver does help as well

    Little space is a stress reliever for me. However, when adult me is experiencing stress I do yoga, meditate and take a nice warm bath :)

    Little space usually helps me with my stress. I play games, watch movies and cartoons, eat snacks, and do whatever I feel like. I love to eat hot chips in little space.

    Same!! I feel natural ways of reliving stress is also helpful. I try doing yoga every morning and meditation helps me focus. Baths are so comforting while listening to music  :rolleyes:  :rolleyes:

    Thank you so much for your input! I think I might try meditation and yoga in the future. I love taking baths with bath bombs, but I rarely have the chance to do that. I can only manage it when I'm home alone, and that's a really rare occurrence.

    I'm starting to really consider putting something into the personals to try getting a caregiver...? I'm just really not sure about it yet. I don't feel like I can really have a caregiver. Most of them seem to want an intimate relationship, but I'm apothisexual. The last person who said they would be a platonic caregiver just badgered me about pushing the relationship further and tried to make me feel bad for just wanting to be friends. I don't want that to happen again.

    Before I came here I didn't really have any friends. Maybe now that I'm here I will have someone to talk to. ^^

    Squishies! I had totally forgotten about those! They can be really helpful at times, right? I think I just need to slowly build up a horde of them to help me. XD Thank you so much for posting!

    This is not helpful at all so please don't think this is me giving you advice haha

     

    When I'm stressed I find it hard to do anything.

     

    And everything. Literally all I do is lay in bed, sulk and cry. It's even harder for me to stay in little space. :l

     

    I've tried meditation and yoga, coloring, reading, taking baths, nothing helps. Except excessive crying, dread and self loathing. xD

    When I'm stressed I like to put in my headphones, listen to happy music and run around my house and dance! I'm able to get rid of all the stressful energy and focus on something else rather than what is causing the stress.

    Aww, I'm sorry. Maybe if you keep coming back here from time to time someone will post something that works for you! That is the reason I posted it. ^^ Let's help each other out.

    That sounds like a really good idea. ^^ I should get more dancing music, things that really put me in little space. Thanks so much for posting!

    Exercise. Regular exercise of different types. It's my daily therapy and stress squasher.

    Thanks for posting! I'm such a wimp, I'm not sure I could hold up an exercise regimen like that, but I find it super cool that you can! ^^ You must be in good shape. •v• I can always try doing that anyway, just for the sake of trying.

    There's no such thing as willpower. That's a myth. You either want something enough to work for it, or you don't.
    And yes i am in great shape NOW, because i remember the first half of my life when i was unfit, overweight and miserable. Did i suddenly jump off the couch and go on a twenty mile bike ride, then join the gym and squat 80kg? No, of course i didn't.
    You start where you are today. If that's a fifteen minute walk around the block, then great. Do that. If it's ten wall pushups, fantastic. Do that too. Baby steps, not kangaroo leaps, lol.

    Thank you for the advice! ^^ I'll try starting with something small. Maybe 5 pushups a day or something, and try to work my way from there. Motivation is really difficult for me, but I'll do better in the future I'm sure.

    That's great. Try get outside in the fresh air too. Just a gentle, short walk can do wonders for "average level" anxiety.

    I'll remember that. I don't really have much of anywhere to go, but maybe I can just walk laps around my backyard.

    You don't need an actual destination. Just set off walking, then after your chosen length of time, turn around and come back!
