    I have struggled all my life with this and didn't realize it until recently. I tend to get stuck in Ni-Ti, get sucked into Netflix or Youtube or forums (like this one, ha) or really just any interesting online information rabbit-holes, or binge read, or eat too much, or eat the wrong things, or both.

    I have recently started doing more hiking in the woods (awesome!) and some brief meditating in the mornings. I would love to know what other things people to do engage Se in a healthy way. Seems I ought to have made a lifelong practice of this already. And I have two INFJ kids who need to know about this, too (probably the INTJ one as well).

    The healthy thing I do personally with Se is what you are doing; meditating, taking a walk, sports/exercise, doing anything with rhythm. Something to keep your body busy with, generally.

    Yeah, exercise.

    Or make things (either arts or crafts, &c.)

    Even just putting extra effort into cooking can help.

    I run and paint, though not at the same time. That would probably help even more, though.

    Does listening to music count?

    Dancing.

    I spend time outdoors (by myself). I like to go to the woods and dance while I'm there.

    You play for real? That's awesome. My dad is a drummer too.

    -------------------------------
    I think playing any instrument is great.

    So, does finger drumming and air guitar count as Se? Lol

    It's true. And yes, finger drumming counts. Air guitar does not.
