Positive distraction

I don't know where I should post this, so mods feel free to move.

It was suggested in chat last night to do something with lyrics, cos I have a think about posting lyrics in chat, and Helen said it could be a creative outlet for me. I am not really a creative person, but I enjoyed doing this. I have done one with quotes too. I know it's not that exciting but I wanted to share with ya'll.

    Thanks Helen. Haha. My handwriting is horrible. I hate it

    Cheers for the advice last night in chat btw. Although kind of only just done it, as I had a bad night.

    I've done this! and I did it before you :P
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Brilliant idea! I do this in my diary. I literally have 4 notebooks filled with just song lyrics, it's a great emotional outlet and distraction technique :)

    Just came across this thread and remembered what a great idea this was, have you done anything else like this lately BananaMonkey?

    Anyone else got any creative positive distractions that they want to share?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    :eek: I've never seen this thread before! What a good idea :)

    I like to draw sometimes.. Is that a creative positive distraction? I mean I find it hard but I love to draw.

    Shall I share some photos? If I can figure out how to... Helen had to explain to me how to share one from a website! Never shared one off my comp before..
  • *BananaMonkey**BananaMonkey* Lyrical Poster Posts: 5,368 Part of The Furniture
    Nope not done anything like this before. I am just not a creative person. Wish I was but Im not. I can never stick with nothing. So if anyone has tips to stick with creative things that they wanna share. :-)

    Not sure if that's right, really bad at tech stuff..

    Anyway, that's a few of my drawings. When I actually do draw I get lost in it so it's an amazing distraction :)

    Yep, I know they're not the best but I don't care :) I just love to draw and paint.

    Hey everyone,

    Tonight we had a chat about positive thinking and I thought I would add some ideas to this thread about things that you could do/get involved with that could help pick your mood up, make you smile, keep you distracted etc etc...

    Things that cropped up in chat tonight include:

    - calm.com
    - stay alive app for your phone
    - http://www.llttf.com/
    - InHand App
    - http://apps.nhs.uk/app/moodkit-mood-improvement-tools/

    These are just a few of the things that people find useful, positive distractions for us!

    Are there any sites or apps or things in life that you find useful/keep you going through tougher times/pick you up from time to time? If so - please do feel free to share them here. Remember, no idea is a silly idea and one thing that works for one person, may not work for others, but is still worth sharing!!

    Keep sharing, keep smiling :)
