Weird

Sometimes it’s easy to describe how we’re feeling inside. Other times, we just feel “off,” different or overwhelmed and can’t really pinpoint what’s going on.

Even when we can’t exactly name the emotion or what’s causing it, we can still take actions to improve the way we feel and take care of ourselves.

Reflect

Journaling helps us reflect on difficult thoughts and feelings, so we can better understand and address what we’re going through. This article from VeryWellMind is a good place to start.

Learn

Feeling “weird’ often involves emotions we can’t name, an overall foggy feeling or an inability to focus.

These videos can help us learn about those feelings, dig deeper and help manage them.
