How to Develop your Recovery Strategy

Recovery Strategy

Hello!

It’s important to have a recovery strategy so that when life gets in the way and you feel negative emotions or eally low, you can recover from that quickly. I’ve had a lot of conversations with people recently, including during a supervision session of one of my NLP graduates. They were feeling low and full of self doubt because of something that had happened. I helped them develop a recovery strategy so that if it happened again, they would recover a great state of mind really quickly.

Have a look at the video and answer the questions below

So, I’m assuming you have goals and plans and know what’s important to you and have some boundaries? If not, have a look at some of my other videos or let me know you’d like a chat. Even when we have these, life happens around us and we can have a wobble or crisis. (I’ve been there). If you’ve worked with me, you will have unconscious strategies that will help and sometimes we need to make them conscious. Some people are reflectors and will go away and perhaps write things down and reflect and that will help. Other people will take action straight away – maybe reinforce boundaries, talk to people about how they feel, get rid of anything or anyone that is adding to the negativity. I do a mixture. When I think about it my strategy goes like this

Feel low  —   Acknowledge it — Think about the trigger — think about what has worked in the past —tell someone how I feel —- take action  —- feel empowered

So my questions for you are:

  1. Make sure you have compeeling goals and plans to get there
  2. Think about the reason or the trigger for feeling down
  3. Think about how you recover from that down
  4. Write it down
  5. Use it when needed – Rinse and repeat
