Moving into recovery leads to a life that feels manageable and worth living. The ability to remain sober is a daily task requiring patience, coping skills, and loads of self-compassion and support from others.

Prioritizing needs on a daily basis can help increase the chance of achieving sobriety for that day.

(Savannah therapists) Low Country Counseling on understanding our emotions

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

Savannah therapists counselors therapy Pooler Chatham County Bluffton

Low Country Counseling in Savannah

Emotions carry so much power.

The ability to regulate emotions in a way that feels manageable helps with daily coping and tasks, relationship stability, and a sense of positive well-being.

Mental health conditions, prolonged substance use, past or present trauma or abuse, and chronic stress interfere with emotion regulation. When this happens, the capacity to experience emotions can be diminished which leads to feeling “flat” or even depression. Or, our emotions could become intense or erratic.

If this sounds familiar, talk to a professional to help you understand what’s happening and how to cope.
