Using the environment to describe mental health💙

I took some rather splendid photographs of Central London this week for my research portfolio which I plan to use to describe mental health using the environment as a visual perspective.

How does this work? 

You travel to a place that means something to you personally. It can be local, abroad, or even in your own home.

You take a photograph of that place. They say every picture speaks a thousand words! 

So what do we do next . . .

Any ideas? 

1. Look at the photograph above. Just look at it. Take in all the information visually. Really feel the historical vibe and the patterns of Shakespeare’s famous Globe Theatre. What does the photograph represent? Imagine what you believe is inside that building. This is an exercise designed to look at our inner selves and is a critical thinking exercise. Everyone will have a unique perception of what they feel would be inside. . . So really take a look at it. What does the building mean to you?

How does this relate to mental health do you ask?

This is when we come to step two:

2. Write down all the emotions and feelings you believe this building contains within its frame work. Write down what you believe inspired the architects to design this building in a certain way.

3. What did you learn from doing this exercise?

The quiet part of Majorca

Majorca was one of the first holidays I went on as a child. It holds the best memories I had as a child so choose this place to go on holiday because of its calmness, it’s tranquility, it’s history that is relatable to mine. I stayed in a hotel on the south coast. It was quiet. And peaceful. I slept most of the time listening to the waves – feeling relaxation and a sense of safety like I was being listened to by nature. Nature always has its perks with me. I love everything that’s alive. Ironic right? When you suffer so deeply within yourself. Maybe it’s Limbic Resonance? Maybe just maybe…
