A Little Therapy Idea: Build The Positives

When you have an Eating Disorder, Anxiety Disorder or Depression it is hard to see the positives and achievements. Personally I work well with visual aids in all walks of life, so it got me thinking….

what if we could see the good aspects of ourselves in physical form?

If we took a box of lego and placed one brick down for each positive thing about ourselves very soon we can see a wall form. That wall is us, our strength. It can be added to as and when we want and when we reach a new milestone. Those things are always part of us, making up who we are, so bricks don’t ever need to be removed. When you feel low, you can look at the physical version of how strong you are and where you can go next.
