CPR is a framework for Sustainable Mental Health Habits
CPR includes three simple steps as outlined in the video below :
Catch yourself in the midst (or before) before a stress response escalates by becoming more aware of what triggers you.
Pause and take a 60 second time out when you feel the physical sensations of stress begin to escalate.
Repair the root source of the heightened stress response which is often physiological in nature. Possible unmet needs include: sleep, food, fresh air, exercise.

- Kiara took copious notes and journaled her reflections and insights while watching the CPR video.
- With her permission, I am sharing her CPR journal reflections below.
