Let’s Do Some Emotional Visual Eating

Well, that was a week to forget. These are crazy times and who knows how long this will last. Since it’s too hard to always get to the market at this time. I thought this would be a fun visual treat for all who can’t get to some sweets!

Which of these words jumps out for you? Don’t think about it, just look at the words and focus on the word that your eyes are drawn to.

                        Mine is courage.

For me, it’s the courage to wake up every morning and deal with the level of lower back pain. That will present itself as I get ready for the day.

 

                Affirmation With My Word

I have the courage to greet each morning with a relaxed body.

 

Now you give it a try! See if you can write or say an affirmation with your word.

 

With the word you have chosen, here are some activities:

 

  1. Put the word on a post-it note and stick it around the house.

  2. For the artist, create some art with your word and keep it as a screensaver on your iPhone, iPad or laptop!

  3. For the number of letters in the word, journal that many days on how that word is so important to you. eg. Courage has 7 letters so that will be 7 days of journaling.

  4.  Find a podcast or quote that is about that word.

Here are a few of my activities to show you how I used the word.
