Your "go-to" coping mechanisms that you have access to when you are in need.

These tools may be different for everyone! We recommend keeping your "toolkit" close to you at your workspace or even make copies to take with you for emergencies.


You have two boxes in your toolkit:

  1. Instant Tools: use in distress, during a spiral, or when you are in need of a break

  2. Long-Term Tools: use to regulate your mental and physical health over the long-term
