Self Therapy: How It Helps!

Ever noticed how we can find therapy in little everyday things? We don't always need a shrink to help us figure out what the problem is and how to solve it. Sometimes all we really need is some self therapy.

For Example:


Sade is confused and feels mentally, emotionally and physically disorganized, the scattered state of her room does nothing to ease the turmoil going on in her head, in fact it seems to worsen it...so she begins cleaning, dusting, arranging and putting things in place. Bed neatly dressed, dusty surfaces carefully cleaned, scattered items put in place...she feels so much better, breathes easier and her mind is unclogged and she is thinking straight again, now she can face her issues with a clear mind.




Efosa is worried about work and all the many issues that seem to always pop up between him and his fiance, the neighbors dog does nothing to calm his frayed nerves with it's continuous barking, he fights the intense urge to go over to their house and strangle the damn thing to death. Instead he picks up his headphones to block out the noise, plugs into his laptop, volume on full blast and proceeds to mix songs on his "Virtual DJ" app. Music always calms him, he has always wanted to be a DJ, with the current issues he's facing in the office, his pain in the ass of a boss constantly on his neck, he is seriously considering following his passion. 2 hours later, he takes off his headphones, thank goodness the dog has quietened down, now he can think with a clear mind on the best ways to tackle the problems currently plaguing his life.


Yetunde's mind is all over the place, she can't seem to settle on one thought, let alone decipher the reason behind her restlessness...so much is going on at once, it's almost as if her world is crashing, sort off. The announcement of her parents impending divorce, her current state of joblessness, her best friend (who she is secretly in love with) getting married in a months time. It's just so much to process at once. Pacing back and forth in her bedroom, she decided to go for a run before she finds herself breaking all the breakables in the house. She puts on her sneakers and jogging pants and heads out the door. The wind hits her face and seems to blow every problem in her life away. Yetunde has always loved staying fit, getting physically active always relieves her of stress, both mental and physical, and she definitely needed the stress relief right now. She ran for about an hour, and when she got back home, she felt amazing, it seemed the wind had cleared her head, everything seemed so clear now and she knew the next steps she needed to take.

BONUS:  It's amazing how you can find therapy by just taking a nap....yes! You can try taking a nap for self therapy I've done it so many time and it turns out so well..always remember we don't always need a shrink to help us figure out what the problem is and how to solve it. Sometimes all we really need is some self therapy. We each have our own special self therapy, what's yours? Please share with me in the comments section, I would love to read from you.

The Hausa Girl I Will Never Forget - Gidipal

She came to my place afterbegging her for days, she had a beautiful face
gave her a hug and wanted to give her a peck
she don’t let me,but what the heck
saw a Gold necklace on her neck ^_^
in my mind i said God had Buttered my bread
“you are so cute” i said
told her to come sit on my bed
she rejected with a smile that could make any guy drop dead
her abaya was designed in a colorful red
i offereddrink and snack
she only wantedwater
she caught my attention
my life was in her detention
i said “babe i have a question”

Oga Skempo by Femi Blaze

Skempo had called me before. Several times even though I've rarely ever dialed his number. But today I'm going to meet him, in person. I quickly jogged to the tailor to wipe one of my clothes. I swept my room twice. The C.E.O of TolaGrafiks is coming to Dungeon home in Ikire. It's a dream day.

Around 5pm, another call came in. I was sure it was him. I quickly picked the call. "Hello sir", I said. "Hello Femi. I just arrived back in Ikire now. I'm at Naira and Kobo. Can you take a bike and come meet me there", Oga Skempo said. I wanted to laugh, not only at the strange way he pronounced "naira and kobo" but also because he has learnt a lot about me from reading my piece. He knows for sure I won't take a bike, I'm economic type. I watch my spending like an Agbero watching over a bus stop. . I chuckle. "Ok sir", I replied, "I'm on my way right now".
