Wanted to share something that’s been helpful in my journey so far, mindfulness and meditation! I’ve always seen the two as somewhat corny and always thought I wouldn’t be able to do it because OCD just won’t let my brain turn off, but as I’ve started I’ve really come to enjoy it! It’s allowed me to develop a better relationship with my mind and has brought some much needed clarity in tough moments. That being said, don’t use it as a compulsion! There were time where I felt great after meditation and practicing mindfulness but had to remind myself I can’t use it as a form of reassurance or as a compulsion. A good way to avoid that is to incorporate it into your daily routine; whether it’s 5 minutes or 20 minutes, it’s a really great way to better understand the brain and the mind. I recommend the Headspace app!
