Apologies if I'm teaching you to suck eggs, but maybe look into the Third Wave Cognitive Behavioural Therapies, which are becoming more prevalent these days? They kind of bridge the gap between traditional CBT and holistic, person-centred approaches such as mindfulness and would probably fit in that space between "traditional" psychotherapy and practices like yoga.
As an side, when I was in trauma therapy my counsellor praised yoga as having a higher success rate than many forms of therapy. 👍
Woke at 3.30am, dozed until the noisy bastard birds decided to do their chorus and got up at 5am.
Reinstalled Collabora on my NextCloud and decided, somewhat inspired by the Itch "Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality", that I should stop pissing about and get at least something out there for my RPG project, so managed to slap down some 600 okay-ish words for the Quick Start Rules.
Not a bad start to the day, though I suspect I'm going to need a lot more coffee.
I've had a week off work and I'm only just relaxing (as I can tell by the emotionally overwhelming upsurge). Just in time for work on Monday, then! At least @Jo and I are binning a load of cruft this weekend so maybe my home workspace will feel less constricted by then.
Meh. The world is going to shit just like all my favourite bands and RPGs predicted in the 80s. But at least I have a skip.
UK peeps, Co-op health now has a free app for home delivery service for repeat prescription medication.
I'm currently trialling them to see if they have better access to this mythical transdermal patch supply that is meant to exist but my current pharmacist can't find. But also the queues for the pharmacy are looong and i'd rather avoid going in.
Man, I love #nextcloud, they are really fighting the good fight and nailing it. Also really happy to see them promoting @CollaboraOffice again over… I honestly forgot their names… well, you know who I'm referring to
Bear reveal, now for sale!
UK only! A handmade, 10" tall burgundy crushed velvet bear needs a loving home. They have lil' black eyes, brown felt pads on their paws, a black felt nose, and a blue and silver neck ribbon. Made over the course of 3 days, with a sewing pattern I made myself. Will you give this cutie a home? Not suitable for young children.
£40 inc P&P
Feeling improved, but gotta do four tests tonight (me, wife and both boys). Wife now making a Victoria Sponge as a reward to the family for swabbing tonsils and shoving said swabs up each of our noses (after 9pm). 😂❤️🍰
Well, not been feeling great for a few days (enough to be off work) and the mild cough has moved onto my chest overnight. Also hot, exhausted and aching. Called 111. A week for me, two weeks for wife (NHS worker) and kids, test kits in the post.
Frustrating as I've been absolutely anal about lockdown. Only thing I can think of is I went for a walk for the first time in seven weeks, last Thursday.
Bollocks. Ah well.
