107 – VIDEO GAMES ADDICTION & GUILT

This is one of them Therapy sessions, where I empty my Mind on the topic of Video Game Addiction.

It’s something I’ve struggled with all my life; I thought I was over it, but it seems I’m still Trapped in the Cycle of Buying Video Games, Feeling Guilty and Selling Them, only to than want to Buy Them Back Again.

I really have no idea what is going on, or what I’m supposed to do about it, but I know Talking About Stuff Helps.

And some of the stuff I talk about on this one, includes:
The Flow State,
How Racing Games are like Drawing,
Feelings of Guilt,
Are Video Games Sociable or Anti-Sociable,
My herstory with Video Games,
and Dancing on the Dance Floor at University :)

Hope you find this one interesting.

19 – SOCIAL ANXIETY AND FEAR

In this lil episode I talk about an experience I had on the bus today that was both funny, and awkward at the same time … but it made me realise how Social Anxiety, Fears and everything in life can be viewed either positively or negatively. I share some Art, Transgender and even Lucid Dreaming experiences too, that prove we really are in control of our thoughts.

17 – SKETCHING PEOPLE IN PUBLIC

It’s that time of year again … when the sun comes out to play, so do the drawing pencils :) It’s time to start sketching people in public, something I was terrified to do at first, but it’s one of the most fun ways to improve, and loosen up, both your drawing, and the mind :)

6 – SELF-AWARENESS AND ART

On this episode I talk about Self Awareness and Art … Learning how to Draw is all about Self Awareness, such as being aware of Negative Spaces, but it doesn’t have to stop with the Art. This same Self Awareness can be used to start tackling mental issues like OCD, Social Anxiety and even heal suppressed emotional situations from our life. Art is powerful, it always seems to lead to Self Awareness, which seems key to self healing.
