Halloween, I did not wish to promote.
I did create art .. I'll save it for next year
I'm actually testing out new paper! Getting my usual black paper was a hastle..
NOW available in a pad form (thank you Universe) I love it &
I've been extra busy - playing with it.
Mental health Monday - blue Monday.
I don't know about you but I am physically tired and mentaly zapped. Punn intended.
There is too much going on at the moment - hard to believe that some are more worried about the POS than the Pandemic. Or rather - the mayhem expect to ensue after the VOTE.
Another lockdown is imminent because the Government... no, because WE (HUMANS) can't get our shit together and stay home for 3 weeks. Or wear masks when out in public.
Add the time change and tell my pup that 4 am is too early to go out to pee.
Yup, I'm pooped. I know I am not alone.
Many are way more tired than I am - like essential workers.
The snow is beautiful - it brings a blanket of calm and cold, perfect for napping.
It's more important to my own mental health to slow down like winter sometimes demands.
I hope you (whom ever you be) are taking time to rest - it is essential - more than your work.
It's work to stay focused and not allow depression to consume.
I've got a painting on the easel, one on my desk and sketch pad on the coffee table & 4 blank bird houses on my kitchen table... it is essential WE all work - even if we are staying at home all day- see it as an opportunity to become better. Mom's see it as more work I've been reading.
At anything... that's the best advice for mental health IMO - learn a new hobby that you enjoy. The rest will do itself.
Alcohol consumption (drug in general is ) UP.. I know myself - have felt like a glass of wine more often than usual - so I've decided NOT to have any. it is an educated choice I am making- alcohol is a depressant. Alcohol is addictive - very.
Seek help if drinking is a problem as I can guarantee you, it is a problem for others around you too. Don't choose to make this pandemic experience worse with alcohol.
Smoke 'a' joint.. if you can nap and then get creative.
I hope I get energy to get creative in the kitchen- some cookies are calling!
I am focusing on editorials, it's how my own mind ' vents' and then... I smile.
On my mind - Ho Ho Holidays. Lot's of material this year- go Figure.
