7 Practical Ways To Get Over Trauma

Trauma is the kind of experience had by someone who witnessed something so horrifying and terrible in the past that they couldn’t get over the feeling of what they saw. Trauma can also come from hearing too. We have heard so many cases of people who fainted right after hearing that their mum passed away.

Example of what can cause trauma incidence includes someone witnessing a killing, someone losing his or her parent, someone losing all he or she has to a fire accident, car accidents, a very painful break up, natural disaster and so many more.

We could notice that all examples given above have just one thing in common. The loss.

The stage of trauma is a stage someone shouldn’t be because those who stayed so long in that stage can later have what we know as post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

This piece is written to give us the right procedure to follow when trying to get over a trauma.

1. Seek and Accept Support

First and foremost, getting past trauma is to want to heal and be willing to accept the help and support. It might turn out that much of your healing journey occurs alone, or it might involve a lot of community support or individual therapy. Whichever route it’s going to take naturally, you’ll have the best chance of recovering well if you are in the space of accepting support.

2. Find the Right Help

Next, you’ll want to find the right type of help for your situation. If therapy seems to be like the right step for you, you can look specifically for a trauma-informed therapist to ensure that the therapist is able to work with trauma and provide you with the best possible service.

Or, it might feel better to attend a support group so that you can be around others who have experienced a similar situation and find understanding and community.

3. Connect With Others

Whether or not you attend a support group around healing, it will help you connect with other people. You don’t need to center your trauma with the group, and you don’t even necessarily need to talk to other people about your trauma if it doesn’t feel right to you.

Connection with others is key to happiness as humans, and isolating yourself while dealing with trauma can lead to negative outcomes like depression. Spend time with friends when you feel up for it, and share what you’ve experienced when it feels right.

4. Exercise

Exercise has been shown to improve symptoms of PTSD. In addition to directly helping you heal, exercise and physical movement also provide your body with much-needed feel-good chemicals like endorphins.

If you don’t love working out, that’s OK! Take walks, do something fun like bike riding or roller skating, move along to a yoga video, or have a solo dance party. Anything that involves moving your body will help you heal.

5. Feeling Your Feelings

Journaling is a common way to manage stress and move through complex events. Give it a try if it feels like it might be beneficial for you. If it doesn’t, it will still be helpful to spend time sitting with your feelings. Do your best to get in touch with what you’re feeling, allow yourself to experience it entirely for a few moments, then notice how it passes.

Feeling your feelings, and accepting them, is key to healing from trauma. You may have some difficult feelings along the way, like anger, and that’s OK. It’s natural to have a wide variety of emotions, and there’s nothing wrong if some of them are new to you.

6. Self-Care

Self-care reduces stress. Equally important, it feels good. Practice self-care through your healing journey by regularly taking action to do things that feel good and loving for yourself.

Self-care acts can be simple and free and might be as mundane as taking a bath. What matters is that you set time aside to care for yourself, and you do things that make you feel loved.

7. Take Breaks

When moving through healing, you might find that you’re more tired than usual. Or, you might feel like you have physical energy, but your mind doesn’t work as well. Healing from trauma takes a lot of energy.

The best way to deal with reduced energy during this time, whether physical or mental, is to be gentle with yourself. Taking breaks, even from doing fun things, to pause and give yourself a moment will help keep your energy up and ensure you don’t exhaust yourself.

These are practical ways to get over trauma. I hope you find healing.
