We started the New Year in a new venue: The historic Guildhall in Plympton St Maurice.
Doodle your Recovery is a six week course giving people the opportunity to share their feelings, practice mindfulness, create art, relax and chat.
This course is free to attend thanks to funding from Devon Recovery Learning Community. DRLC is a recovery college provided by Devon Partnership NHS Trust to promote mental health and wellbeing. Their students are people with lived experience of mental health difficulties, their family and friends, and the professionals who support them.

Have you ever attempted to create massive changes in your life at New Year, only to be left feeling disappointed by February? Here’s a simple solution. Use a habit tracker to make small, achievable tweaks to your daily routine.
Here are 5 things I love about using a habit tracker:
1) You can customise it.
You use one A4 page per month and choose your own goals or habits.
2) It’s satisfying and motivating.
You can tick off the squares or colour them in. By the end of the month you will see how many things you have achieved.
3) You can add something easy that you would do every day anyway.
This could be brushing your teeth, making a coffee or checking your emails. Adding a habit that you already have builds in some guaranteed success to your day; it’s so motivating to tick something off straight away!
4) You can add self-care reminders…
…alongside your personal, family, creative, health and career goals. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. You could choose ‘Watch a movie once a week,’ ‘Coffee with a friend’ or ‘Buy myself a treat’.
5) You can drop a habit.
If you find that you didn’t do well at maintaining one of the habits, consider just leaving it off next month. Add something else that you really do want to do! Go easy on yourself.
