Health: One of the key areas to be supported in on this journey is good health and making good healthy choices that support you both physically, mentally and emotionally and even spiritually.

 

Environment:  Ensuring you have a stable network of people around you and a safe place to shelter.

 

Purpose:  Be doing something everyday, even if something little, to keep busy, or help others, or volunteering, caring for family members or friends or do something creative. Give yourself the space to work for independence, earning and income or finding a resourceful way to participate in society.

 

Community:  Being part of a community that is like minded and that can support you and helps you build relationships.

Much like planning for a long trip, you set out a plan of where your going and what you need.

 

You can create a plan of what your journey will look like, this can be particularly helpful with someone supporting you do this. Just like people have coaches and mentors, you can get yourself a trauma team to keep you on track and help you along the way.

 

Set some goals of what you want to achieve and how you will achieve them.

Celebrate the small achievements as well as the big achievements – this all goes towards any healing and feeling good about your achievements.

 

Be mindful of the things that stress you out along the way and write them down. Keeping a daily journal of what you’ve done, how you feel, what triggered you, what you felt good about, what you didn’t feel good about and why, is also a great way to reflect on how you deal with each day. Goes along way to feeling good about yourself again and gaining back your confidence and your power.
