    Hi @ellie2000, how are you feeling?

    If I ever need to put a smile on my face I pop on some Bob Ross YouTube videos. There's something oddly relaxing listening to him describe what he is doing as he paints.

    Do you find relaxing sounds helpful? @ellie2000

    How are you doing today?

    Hearing voices wat do I do

    Hi @ellie2000

    I like to use youtube to make me feel happy too! Sometimes if I want to feel calm I search for calm videos of the sea, because the sound of the sea Is what makes me happy. Other time I like to use youtube as a distraction and something to make me laugh. I like to watch Zoella and Joe Sugg! 

    I'm wondering how you are feeling now - have the voices passed? :heart:

    Hi @ellie2000,

    Are the voices something you recently experienced or did you have them before?

    Hey @ellie2000

    The Mix has a really helpful article about hearing voices here, with some useful coping techniques such as:

    To cope, try techniques such as: 

    • Challenging the voices or saying no to them 
    • Creating a profile of the voice, such as its gender, age or what triggers make it appear 
    • Writing down how you’re feeling in a diary or expressing your feelings in artwork 
    • Distracting yourself from the voices by wearing earplugs, singing or even watching TV 
    • Using a grounding technique like focusing on your feet or counting your breaths 
    • Keep your favourite object with you, such as a picture or toy
