A Self-Care Art Project
For this project, think of yourselves in terms of who you are without any of your titles, roles or jobs. Think in terms of words like: funny, loyal, creative etc. You can use words to describe yourself or look for words you would like to focus on bringing into your life.
What to do
To start, go through magazines, catalogs or newspaper to find words that inspire:
Begin to assemble the words (pictures are an option too.) Think in terms of a poem or a whimsical paragraph that you can create with the words that you found. The poem can be quirky, fun and whimsical.
Further resources for relaxation techniques and inspiration:
