The Coping Kete

No. 4 – Open Posture

This week, to attain, maintain or regain my sense of wellbeing …

I will practice being aware of my body and making sure my posture is straight and comfortable, allowing for easy breathing and a stance of strength. Keeping the lungs open and my breathing regular will help to balance out my mood.

Once I am familiar with changing my posture and observing its effects on my mood, I will add it to my Personal Coping Kete for times of stress and distress.

One Thought on “No. 4 – Open Posture

  1. I used to find that when I was stressed or upset that I’d turn my body in on itself almost, all of me would be turned away from my surroundings, the people I was talking with. My body was making me a closed system – so this is more than making it possible for us to breathe properly (which is crucial) but it also allows us to connect with the information we probably need to balance things, get support and soothe ourselves. Coping comes in our small actions I think. Now, I try to stand tall, to send myself physical messages that I’m okay and make it possible to improve things.
