Take Care of You! Fill Your Emotional Bucket!
Your capacity to cope can be compared with a plain, metal bucket. Imagine such a bucket sitting under an old black hand-pump. The bucket overflows with clear, cool drinking water and is regularly replenished by a single up and down motion of the pump handle. Thirsty friends, guests and even strangers continually stop to quench their thirst. What would happen if the well ran dry, or if so many people stopped to take a drink that the pump could not keep up with the demand?
Your bucket is the reservoir of strength used to cope with the stresses of life. People who drink from your emotional bucket aren’t usually thinking about empty buckets. Therefore, if you are to cope with the demands others make on you, you are the one who must ensure your bucket isn’t emptied. Take time to fill your reservoir of strength, your emotional bucket, so you can stay available to you, family and friends.
Hobbies have long been used as a way to relax and fill an empty bucket. Here are five reasons BPC classes will help keep your bucket full.
1. Fill Your Reservoir.
In groups or alone, women have always used crafts or hobbies as a way to relax. Hobbies such as quilting, scrapbooking or sewing have provided a noncompetitive environment, a place to find inner-peace. BPC’s online community is a way to not only relax but socialize, document, record and albeit unknowingly, refill your emotional bucket.
2. Stress Free and Simple.
The online classes and community are available 24/7 making you in control of when you go to class. BPC encourages socializing and working at your own pace – no pressure. Classes come directly to your inbox and you have forever access!
BPC offers a diverse schedule of classes and activities to help achieve balance. This allows more than just finish pages. Reconnecting with yourself, your past and others helps to work through a variety of emotions while you are filling your bucket.
4. Improve Your Mental, Physical and Emotional Health.
Research shows that women are much more likely than men to experience long-term stress in their lives and less likely to address the stress. This can be the cause of many health problems. So take better care of yourself by participating in hobbies and crafts you enjoy and yes! BPC is a great place to do this!
5. Document Your Memories.
Taking classes here at Big Picture helps you tell the stories of your life journey and connects you with your stories. Remember, creating is a way to unwind, accomplish a legacy for families and at the same time fill your emotional needs. Keeping life in perspective helps your stress level and thus your overall health.
Don't forget, it’s Fun! BPC is a caring, welcoming place. Come to just take a breather from your ever-chaotic lives. Come in and feel welcome any time of the day or night. Come to play, come to connect, come to relax, come to create!
The BPC community is not about how much you get done, but about how you take care of you. The simplistic, no pressure nature of Big Picture Classes allows for creativity to flow, connections to be made and a sense of relief to happen as you feel a sense of productivity. Focus on your own strengths and successes. Take classes which help you reflect your own individual feelings, creativity and free spirit.
