 Therapeutic fun projects

Something to do at home therapeutically can be collecting magazines and second hand mass produced books with images you would be happy to tear out.  Take a sheet of heavy paper or card, perhaps some packaging board you can recycle for this activity. Choose a theme for your visualisation board. It could be about: things to look forward to, things that are just beautiful and speak to your soul, colours, art, textures. Give the project a purpose and attach a meaning to it, this is important as it will the access the part of your psyche which does not speak in words but will express itself through the images you choose, things you did not realise you needed to know or feel or do. Let it activate you into taking affirmative action in your life. Keep the image when its finished somewhere you can see it often and let it speak to you 

The environment inside of you

This is as much about your internal world as the outside. Are you looking after your mind, with good nourishing thoughts? Are you recycling the tired worn out stuff that is heavy, laden with pointlessness? Recycling and throwing out the unusable in our psyche and having a good clear out is the road to health. So let the sun in and darkness out. Don't be a mentalised hoarder of yours or anyone else's 'rubbish'. Look after your own inner environment. What, who or how, does life or thinking habits pollute you?
