    My thing is jigsaw puzzles. ..1000 pieces maximum though, any more and I wouldn't see the end in sight and give up! I have a couple of them framed around the house too. They've really helped my anxiety, just the concentration means no space in my head for other stuff. I love listening to music too, but usually end of feeling really melancholy as my music holds so many memories for me.

    I've bought loads of these books as christmas presents this year, from Book People and The Works. Also bought pencils to go with them, colour pencils seem more apt than felts for this.

    They don't change your thoughts but they certainly have helped me relax and take my mind off the thoughts. I think they are really underrated. I work in a library and I do a kids arts and craft group, it's usually the adults i can't get the pens off!


    Thanks Debs, this will help me. I can't focus very hard right now so it's the little things that count. Word searches it is.
