______________________________

On the computer 

- F. lux  creates a lovely warm glow between sundown and sunup that is supposed to not mess with your sleep cycle the way a normal screen will.

- Listen to calming music 

- Rainymood.com  or  SimplyNoise.com [just a note for rainymood the background is a looped video of rain on a window so warning in case you get dizzy from mild flashing lights or movement]

- watch tv shows or listen to podcasts that are non-triggering. Simply hearing a familiar voice or seeing familiar faces can help

- chat/skype with a friend. Talk about what is on your mind.

_______________________________

In your room

- build yourself a nest of pillows, blankets, and/or stuffed animals

______________________________

_____________________________

Misc.

- take a warm bath or shower and scrub yourself clean

- get a little food in your stomach

- count backwards from 1000 by 7s
