Gardening

gardening-001

Number three in the little series I am doing focusing on simple activities that can help during periods of mental ill health – see here and here for the first two.

I don’t know much about the actual technical side of gardening, but I enjoy the little bits I do & find it satisfying when my clumsy attempts sometimes work out (key word: sometimes). This year I managed to grow two teeny tiny peppers after shoving a few seeds from my lunch into some pots. They fell off before they could get any bigger, but they were stupidly cute while they lasted!

World Mental Health Day/Walking

Today is World Mental Health Day so I thought I would post up the second in a series of doodles I am doing based on simple activities that can help during periods of mental illness, or that just generally improve mental health. The reading one I posted recently is the first one.

This one is: walking. I like to go somewhere quiet with lots of trees but just getting some fresh air is good for clearing away some of those cobwebs.

I will be posting a bit more about these images soon, as well as adding another couple of drawings, so keep an eye out…
