It can be hard for children who have experienced childhood trauma and toxic stress from homelessness to self-regulate their emotions. Fortunately, mindfulness techniques can help them do that.

Visit us on Facebook and Twitter for a link to a guide from @nytimes that can help you and the children in your life learn how to practice mindfulness.

Here is one of the techniques they recommend: A simple exercise, known as R.A.I.N., can help us stay in the present moment and not get caught up clinging to the experiences of others, or our own emotions.

R: Recognize. Acknowledge what is happening, just noting it in a calm and accepting manner.
A: Accept. Allow life to be just as it is, without trying to change it right away, and without wishing it were different somehow.
I: Investigate. See how it feels, whether it is making you upset or happy, giving you pleasure or pain, just note it.
N: Non-Identification. Realize that the sensations you are feeling make for a fleeting experience, one that will soon pass. It isn’t who you are.

I wanna share something extra deeply about my childhood and the reason why I made this instagram and the reason for my mental health today. There is so much about # metoo everyday but I never read something that resembles my own story and my trauma. I grew up with 4 men in my family who raped me from i was around 4 years old and was continuing until I was 11 years old. I almost never find anything about this issue because it's incest! It's so sick and dark that nobody wants to share it but for those who do, I have to thank you. This happens all the time in many homes! I was also drugged as a child, they tried to prevent me from remembering what happened but I remember it very well. I actually started teaching myself quite early to always mix my own juice myself so that there was no pills in the glass, I felt like I had more control i guess . I always had to find new ways how to survive . When I had friends who wanted to sleepover at my house, I sent them home at midnight cause I was so afraid something would happen to them. When you grow up like this you need to always find new ways how to keep your head up and always find something positive to look forward to. Beside my house at this one place we lived we had some cows 🐄 i was often sitting in the gras talking to them , probably shared all my secrets and i always felt very calm . What breaks my heart now is that so much people (adults) knew what was going on but didnt help me, some actually made it even worse. This is why i never quit , i will always share my story cause this is still happening and i feel like we need a change ! People need to be more educated about this . There have been so much people working for the state knowing What was going on in my childhood but really didnt lift a fucking finger 🖕🏽 fuck them for that . Anyway , I will come forward and share more of my childhood here and I hope there are some out there who feel a bit less alone. because you are not alone, there are actually a lot of us. ✨ #angst #anxiety #ptsd #mentalhealthwarrior #childhoodtrauma #avoicefortheinnocent #breakthesilence #generalizedanxietydisorder #posttraumaticstressdisorder #psykiskhelse

🌾My two siblings are the loves of my life. They are my truest inspiration. They are everything to me.
.
🌾They have battled mental anguish I could not protect them from. They still battle demons I cannot conquer. The emotional abuse they suffered was great.
.
🌾My dad said he loved us but acted like he hated us. It was very confusing all the time. Mum was mostly apathetic to dad’s behaviour due to her own past trauma.
.
🌾My dad has an undiagnosed personality disorder from unresolved childhood trauma from physically and emotionally abusive parents.
.
🌾My mum has now been diagnosed with PTSD and major depression from her previously undisclosed chronic childhood sexual abuse.
.
🌾This has left open wounds in our minds as their offspring. Only now are these wounds able to begin to heal, now that we are away from the one person who could not self reflect on his contribution to the negative family dynamic.
.
🌾No one is perfect. But when people are poorly behaved and refuse to recognise their behaviours as negatively effecting those around them, something has to be said for creating distance between you & that person. Whether they are family or friend.
.
🌾I am so proud of myself, my mum and my siblings for our bravery and strength. I hope one day we can all find peace in our hearts and damaged minds in our own way.
.
🌾My dad taught me a number of good things. One of them was - you’ve just gotta keep on going. So that’s what we’ll do.
.
🌾Together.

#tbt I love swimming, love the ocean. But there's also a deep seeded fear. When I was little I'd be in the water for hours, you'd think I'd form gills. My mother would have a shit time trying to get me out. So she got to telling me that if I don't get out. The ghosts of past drowning victims will pull me under...! I'm 33 now & that shit still has me fucked up....😡😡😡😡😡 #childhoodtrauma #beautifulplaces #facingfears #Greece #memories #storytime #vagabond #howweroll #wherenext #santorini

I finally made it to the #diagonalleyproject today ⚡😄 good thing because it's the last day before being moved to a kid's camp. Everything about this story and project is beautiful, I encourage everyone to read about it, and donate. It started as a dad granting a Halloween wish to his daughters and grew to this. In his driveway! Such beautiful work 💗 #potterhead #harrypotter #diagonalley

This #tree looks the way it does because it survived being struck by #lightening when I was a child. I look the way I do for the same reason ⚡️

My current #therapist is far better than any other therapist I’ve ever had. Assignment for the next two days until I see him again: work on #BulletJournal and color this #AdultColoringBook page to help be #calm, #focus, and to remember my #badassery ...in his words. This homework I can get behind.

So, I totally forgot to give y'all an explanation post to my last piece of ink. I know how tragically upset you must have been, so enjoy some shotty pictures of my chest as I ramble about the permanent decorations on my body. .

Memento Viviere Memento Mori translates verbatim into "remember to live, remember to die." Like that's as straightforward as you can get. The Latin meaning we derive from it (because we as a culture are all about reading between the lines) is to remember your mortality and to remember to live while you still have the chance. I wrap myself up in a cocoon of safety and try to delude myself that I have forever, a lot of the time. This is my reminder to me that I've only got one shot, might as well make the most of it.

The ace also has a meaning. Surprised? You shouldn't be. I'm part of this read between the lines culture. The ace of spades has always been my favorite card in the deck. Interestingly enough, also the card of death, I digress. But as of late, I found out that the acronym ACE stands for Adverse Childhood Experience and sweet baby Jesus, I qualify for that one. Being mauled by Rottweilers at the age of 3 does things for a kids childhood: expedites it. And when you lose control in a situation like that, you may or may not spend the next 17 years trying to gain it back and overdose on control. I digress. Again. .
.
.
Pair the two together and you've got a bluntly honest truth on my chest: "You almost died before you got to truly live. Don't forget that. Don't waste that" And that's also my father's handwriting as well. There's no quiz at the end of this explanation, fear not.

Body Issues: This photo represents a picture of a young lady that lost her innocence. I was 13 in this photo. I already had body confidence issues because of my hair. This was shortly before I slept over a "friends house" and was sexually assaulted by her. I was often picked on because of the size of my lips and I was really tall for a 13-year-old. This is when I started thinking about suicide. This is when accusations about things out of my control starting coming my way. This is when a 13-year-old had to learn to hide her feelings and suppress her emotions because no-one understood her. This is when a grown man defended a young boy for lifting my shirt by saying I shouldn't have worn a crop top. This is when she was identified as broken. Starting at 13 I built up walls became angry and acted tough. When all I wanted to do was scream and cry. It has taken 20+ years to address this girls issues. Am I perfectly healed, no! I am and will always be a work in progress. I may look like I have it together but it is far from the truth. I work hard on making sure my past experiences do not influence my future decisions. How do you push through it all? #somethingsabouther #childhoodtrauma

I needed some colour in my life. So I bought myself 💐. It has been a long and hard few weeks. I have a few private matters going on and I am having to dig deep to find the strength that I know I have. I am facing my fears and going forward with my pain instead of becoming stagnated. Maybe by seeing the courage I have come forward I will start to believe in myself again. It is hard to do that but I have such an amazing family and such strong and solid friendships. Here is hoping 2018 is what I want it to be and that speaking my truth will help me believe in my own voice. #yoga #depression #anxiety #PTSD #recovery #mentalillness #healing #breathe #encouragement #heavydirtysoul #igotthis #healthybodyhealthymind #integrity #challenges #discipline #sadness #courage #itwillbeokayoneday #findwhatfeelsgood #mystory #everyonehasastory #whimsical #namaste #sexualabuse #childhoodtrauma #survivor #selflove #meditation #fibromyalgia

I don't particularly subscribe to the notion of fake it till you make it, I don't think it gives off a good message. Instead when I'm low like today, I just try and glorify the things that I do love about myself. Ladies and gentlemen, my ass 🤣😘💗 #selflove #bodypositive #bubblebutt

Hi beautiful souls!
I along with many others have experienced the life as a woman! The gender differences in our society create hardships, gaps, and difficulties for women! Supporting woman and feminism is something I’ve come to understand clearly, and put my whole heart into! To many feminism is misunderstood, and feels attacking, but the truth is feminism is portraying the inequalities we face as woman! There is nothing to be lost by supporting another cause! Here’s just a few stickers I have made supporting this amazing cause! To all the women including myself who have fallen short to our system, and lacked support this is for you! You are loved, and your life and story matters! Feel feee to purchase these at my etsy shop “FeministWrites” for a very low cost to show your support for women in your active lives! With love, Kaitlin
