Get Out Of The House

Simply getting up and away from your current situation can help to clear your head, as well as physically putting space between you and what might be causing you to self-harm.

You could just go for a walk on your own, or even a run if you’re feeling particularly worked up. If you usually listen to music while you walk around, maybe try it without music. Do something you wouldn’t usually do.

Or you could go to visit someone else, and be around different people. Just getting a change of scenery might help to get you out of negative thought cycles.
