The focus of this blog is self-care and at this point you may be wondering what all these card related posts have to do with well-being. Well - never underestimate the power of a striking image, we live in a very visual world and there is so much competing for our attention.
If you've ever studied NLP (Neuro-linguistic Programming), you'll have read about Representational Systems - in very basic terms this is the theory that we process information using a preferred sense. For most of us this sense is sight.
More about NLP and Representational Systems can be found here.
So it seems to make sense that surrounding ourselves with beautiful images will help inspire and motivate us. Gather photographs, posters, sketches and cards that evoke happy memories or represent your goals and put them anywhere and everywhere - in a frame on the wall, in a scrapbook, in your diary or journal, on your noticeboard, in your wallet - or even on the kitchen cupboard or the bathroom mirror.
Todays Just a Card collection is all about places that are special to us. Treat yourself to a beautiful handmade card that features where you live, where you grew up, where you met your partner or simply where you had a great time. And why not send one to someone who shared that happy experience with you.
All these beautiful cards are designed and produced by independent artists in the UK. Click on the photographs to visit their Etsy shops and help support the Just a Card campaign.
