Coping Skills: Diversions: Write

Folks have mentioned an interest in questions and conversations that make them think. So I've decided to offer more of those. This is the previous list on self-awareness. Here is the new list of coping skills.


1. Write, draw, paint, photography

Obviously, writing is one of my go-to coping skills, and it's more than a mere diversion. It's the most effective activism tool I've found. Art is powerful stuff. The medium doesn't matter, only the message. If you feel sad, angry, frustrated, empty -- go make something. It can help.

How to Write

How to Draw

How to Paint (and of course, happy little trees)

How to Photograph

What are some of your favorite creative activities?
