Things To Do When You're In A Depressive Spiral 8" x 10" Letterpress Print

SKU: PR-105

This print is based on my mental list of ways to spend the day when I don’t feel like spending it. Basically, I made it because I needed it. I hope that you find it useful too, whether you have the occasional bout of the blues, or are going through a particularly hard time, or struggle with chronic depression, or whatever it is. Please take what’s interesting and doable, leave what isn’t, and add your own. And then get out there. Because the world needs you to participate in it.  It would be such a shame if you didn’t.
