D.I.Y. Therapy

Surround Yourself with Reminders

Whenever you start to feel unwanted feelings or need a reason to get up out of bed it helps to have healthy reminders that inspire you.

  1. Write yourself love notes and leave around your house, room, office space, even your wallet.
  2. Find inspiring poems and quotes that give you a sense of healing and purpose.
  3. Cover your walls with art and colors that brighten your mood.

One of my favorite writings about emotions is ‘The Guest House’ by Rumi. A good friend and mentor shared it with me and I read it often to remind me to allow myself to feel what I need to heal.

This being human is a guest house. Each morning a new arrival. A joy, depression, a meanness, some momentary awareness comes as an unexpected visitor. Welcome and entertain them all! Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows, who violently sweep your house empty of all it’s furniture, still treat each guest honorably. She/He may be clearing you out for some new delight.” – Rumi
