Remember to "check in" to see how you're feeling today. This important step can help you refrain from acting on your self-destructive symptoms. Recovery means that you learn how to accept and process your feelings instead of avoiding them by acting on your self-destructive behaviors.
Great family idea. Put on the fridge. Great for when kids get older and their feelings aren't quite as obvious. Helps them say where they are at without "saying" it. I would just make the chart less "elementary" for that age group. We made something similiar in MOPS one year. Going to try it this summer!
