'Draw a Monster' Mindfulness and ACT Interactive Table

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

THE CHALLENGE: Draw a monster that represents an intrusive fear/thought or negative feeling associated with them. Then name it, draw goofy clothes on it, write down where you might take it if you just allowed yourself to shift your perspective and view it differently. THE GOAL: To view fear from a different lens. Once you stop wasting valuable energy on pushing your fears/monsters away, you can use it on the things in your life that hold true value and meaning. Have compassion for your thoughts, expand your mind to make room for your monsters. Once you give fear/monsters zero power, you will see that they will shrink and grow weak. Come to this activity to learn a fun way to stop fighting your fears/monsters, and change the way
you view them.
