Day 12 – A Vase A Day Keeps The Anxiety Away

On the 12th day of lockdown, my vases said to me: “make more room for us please!”

Continuing to pull from what I have learned around how pottery has helped my PTSD, my plans to help manage the stress and anxiety on lockdown are simple: I will be making a new vase for each day.

I aim to continue updating this post each day with my latest lockdown vase!


Or at least that is the plan.

  1. Very pretty! You’ve got skill for sure. If you have anxiety like I do sometimes, try a large cup of warm milk, 2 tablespoons local honey, 1 tsp ashwaghanda powder. It’s ayurvedic medicine to treat stress levels and help your mood. It helps with cortisol in the body. I saw it on YouTube and have been trying it lately. The powder smell and taste is very pungent but the warm milk and honey help it go down easier.
