I play the drums. I haven’t played in a while because of stress and depression. Being on this site is another thing I do, that is therapeutic. Do you do anything therapeutic?
I like colouriging in and just going walks or crafts.
Just about everything I do is therapeutic: yoga, prayer, meditation, piano practice, Spanish study, reading, cooking, talking or visiting with friend, volunteering, watching Netflix and YouTube premium, Bible study podcast, watching piano virtuoso videos, etc…
Writing about my situation has been priceless. I wouldn’t be here without it, it has saved me countless times.
No. But I just started an intensive year long therapy program. This we there’s no group, but next week and from then on there is. I’m hoping it helps.
I go to therapy. I talk to people here. I’m not back to my creative projects yet, but hopefully over the next year I will be, and I can put a lot of emotion into those.
I hope you get back to singing again.
Me too. Thanks.
I use my Rubik’s cubes, idk if that counts
Music, exercise and meditation. Exercise for sure helps me. I only recently began meditating again. It helps clear my mind. I just take about an hour of quiet time. It seems to help.
This forum, but what really takes me out of myself is working with my music, whether it be playing, working on instruments, writing patches, recording etc, it all takes my head to another place entirely. 2nd place reading.
Music (Its one of the most popular hobbies)
I’m into games and game systems. Still like reading D&D and wargaming books and mess around with a few systems. Finally settled on one to paint and collect the miniatures. It’s hard to paint the figures but I’m learning all the time and going to set aside time to do hobby stuff daily. I have too much on the go some days and it’s important to relax.
My therapeutic proclivities are mostly centered around music whether that be listening, reading, or playing an instrument.
Been hooked on the banjo for many moons now.
I listen to music, read books and watch the news. Also, I go for walks and bike on my stationary bike.
