Draw On Yourself

Drawing on yourself could be as simple as drawing red lines on the area where you’re tempted to self-harm. This way you can still see a red mark where you would have otherwise self-harmed.

Or you could get more creative and actually draw and doodle all over yourself as a distraction, to keep your hands and mind busy instead of self-harming.

There are even a couple of cool projects around drawing on yourself. Check out Project Semi Colon & The Butterfly Project.

If you’re drawing on yourself, make sure you use non-toxic pens.

It’s important to find what works for you. If this doesn’t help, don’t worry. There are plenty of other ways to cope. See other ideas of things to try.
