Hope you had a good weekend! I initially posted this first cartoon on August 11, 2008. I think this “Bob Bob” is appropriate. It’s a good fit for today — the day after the long weekend! Hope you enjoy the others as well.
“Vacation Of The Mind”… what I’m thinking about during these long days of Summer is for us to be able to say, “you know what… I’m going to take a day off from my own insanity!” A day where we don’t have to be reminded that we are sick or plagued by mental illnesses. Yes, truly a day for us.
Some of us might not be able to go to the beach. That is why it is important to develop visualization techniques. What is this? Visualization is the art of creating a mental picture. It can be from a real photo; you just look at it and picture it in your “minds eye.” But it’s also much more. It’s a technique used to build self-awareness and positive thinking! You envision yourself doing something, say winning a race or getting the job… But, here is the trick, you visualize it in the first person as if you’re looking out your own eyes, and not watching as a by-stander. It takes some practice but it is a great tool to help focus and give ourselves a “Vacation Of The Mind”…
