8 Day DBT Challenge to Feel Better

The mind is quite amazing. I often hear people talk about how they felt so anxious that it made their stomach upset or so stressed that they ended up with a headache. I’ve experienced these sorts of things myself. The mind is THAT powerful.

But, the good news is that if the mind is powerful enough to make us feel unwell, then it must also be powerful in helping us to feel well.  Sometimes a shift in perspective, a different way of thinking, or actively choosing to change your mood or emotions can cause you to feel better in general.

This will be a fun post. It’s an 8 Day DBT Challenge to go out and capture a photo of something that is connected with a DBT skill.  If you don’t have a camera, you can always sketch it or just jot down what you saw in a few words.   

You can tweet your photos with hash tag #DBT8 or post them to my Facebook wall if you’d like.  I am including some images purely as examples. Your interpretation of the words/skills can be anything that appeals to you. 

Let’s start.
