With head, heart, and hand!

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) presents many threats, and there are also opportunities to revisit your ideas, values, and beliefs about your relationships with other people and the environment. As you come to terms with the last months, we are here for you with changes to work, home, and family situations. There will be continuing adjustments and opportunities to pause and reflect upon what you have instead of what you don’t. We want to inspire you with information and services that meet your emotional, social, educational, and aesthetic needs. Visual methodologies are a means to share memories and feelings with family and friends to mark and remember times when you felt or feel both safe and secure. Think about checking in with your family, friends, or neighbours to see how they are faring. Each one of us has creative sparks that can help to destress in a changing world. Positive visualisation with photographs, moving images, drawings, paintings, and the like from past and present is a potential means to lessen the impact of physical isolation caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Often when we become stressed or distressed, we tend to focus on the past and the future, not to take time to reflect on the beauty of the moment, and strengths in the world around us. The Trident Foundation aims to bring you sketches of that beauty in the hope that this prompts you to discuss, draw, paint, photograph, quilt, write, or otherwise replicate your environment. You can do it to destress and to be re-energised through the magic of nature!

Positive mental imagery of a range of scenes from landscapes to wildlife can present opportunities to lessen “dis-ease” and to enjoy immense views. Canadian Robert Batemen said, “Nature is magic!” (Bateman Foundation Gallery of Nature, 2014). When your dis-ease becomes chronic or acute nature may help you to replace negative with positive images. There are few “cookie-cutter” approaches as to what images you might find to be positive. Our preferred images are affected by our personal choices based upon a range of circumstances, including your biological, psychological, and social attributes. Once you find images that work for you, then these are a keyboard stroke or a room away. These images could help you when you become stressed to transform flight or fight responses into strategic thinking and actions (Harvard Health Publishing, 2011). A caveat to be born in mind here is that this approach often augments, but does not replace support from your family, friends, and qualified mediation, counseling, or support professionals. Also, there are quick fixes if you feel sad or anxious. The Trident Foundation extends Geary’s (2008) doctoral work on work-related vicarious traumatization, post-traumatic stress disorder, burnout, and compassion fatigue. The Foundation develops mainly landscape images and sound and provides such services as mediation, counseling, and an art focus in its support activities. These links are to external websites:
