How to Support Your Mental Health Between Therapy Sessions

Therapy offers a transformative journey of self-discovery and growth, but it’s common for clients to experience moments of uncertainty and anxiety in the days following a session. To ensure you continue to progress and support the valuable insights gained during therapy, here are some engaging and effective practices to embrace between your sessions:

Embrace Your A-ha Moments


Therapy often brings profound “A-ha” moments – those powerful realizations that shed light on your inner world. It’s essential to hold onto these insights and explore them further after the session. Consider keeping a dedicated notebook where you jot down any additional thoughts and reflections that arise. Sharing these newfound insights with your therapist during the next session can lead to deeper exploration and understanding.

Explore with Books and Resources


Expand your knowledge and understanding of your issues by asking your therapist for book recommendations, blogs, or articles that can complement your therapy journey. Reading about relevant topics not only supplements your therapy sessions but also helps you gain new perspectives and fresh insights. Delve into these resources to gain a broader understanding of your emotions and experiences.

Journal Your Way to Clarity

Journaling is a powerful tool that has been found to have numerous mental and physical benefits. Don’t worry about having a perfect journaling technique – there’s no right way to do it. Simply write freely and let your thoughts flow onto the page. Alternatively, you can choose a journal with guided prompts to spark your creativity and self-reflection. Consider keeping a gratitude journal to cultivate positivity and mindfulness by listing things you’re grateful for each day or week.


Take a Mental Break through Physical Activity

Sometimes, we need a break from the relentless chatter in our minds. Engaging in physical activities can be an excellent way to release tension and shift your focus away from anxious thoughts. Exercise triggers the release of endorphins and dopamine, which are natural mood boosters. Engage in mindfulness practices like yoga or meditation to cultivate awareness of your thoughts and feelings without becoming overwhelmed by them. These practices ground you in the present moment, providing clarity and tranquility.

Remember that there’s no one-size-fits-all approach, so experiment with different activities to find what resonates with you the most. The goal is to maintain a supportive routine that complements your therapy journey, empowering you to continue the positive changes you seek.
