Re: The distraction challenge thread!

Okay here's some things to do! Sorry i took so long !

 

Paint how you are feeling, even if it's a bit tough to paint.

 

OR

 

Paint something beautiful, if you'd prefer to do that.

 

 

Write a 200 word essay on how we could do better at supporting people living with mental illness or psychosocial disability to enter the workforce.

 

Do 20 posts in a row in the count to 1million thread.

Re: The distraction challenge thread!

@redhead that painting is epic.. Visually exemplifying your inner struggles. How are you feeling about body image right now?

@roseisnotaplant Write a short piece (maybe 200 words) on what's worrying you lately (or a story if you like Smiley Very Happy), but for every one NEGATIVE follow up with one POSITIVE and or/ GRATITUDE. Example - 

"I had a crap day at work my boss was horrible, though as I reflect it's good I have an income as it provides food and coffee etc.."

@Ben-RO the same, I'm still trying to reach my goal weight. And ED stuff is still really hard.

Re: The distraction challenge thread!

Okay first up, you know you folks can and should give each-other distraction challenges too, right?

 

@redhead I will give you a challenge, but I do also want to hear over on your ED thread about what you're doing to work through this stuff. Even if all you can handle right now is teeeenny tiny steps, i want to encourage you to take them!

 

Here's the challenge:

Here;s two to focus on when you're out of hospital...but maybe you could start on it now?

Make a Bonsai! or a Kokedama

Let me know if those are too complicated though. It's quite a challenge.

In the mean time here's a challenge for in hospital: make something amazing out of paper. <--- that's one technique you could try, although I think you're pretty dang creative, so you have to decide what you can make with what you have around you Smiley Happy 

 

 

@roseisnotaplant

I shall give you an extra challenge too Smiley Tongue

If you don't mind getting your hands dirty, then i want you to make a Dorodango

 

Or you can try one of Redhead's challenges if you're not feeling that one.
