Sometimes, the solution to your problem just won’t come into your head, yet your thoughts are spinning at a 100 kilometres an hour, and you feel like your brain is going to explode.

It’s times like this that you could do with trying some ’art therapy’ as promoted by Viktoria Nazarevich. At its most basic, the only preparation you need to carry out for this is to grab a pencil and a sheet of paper. Then, just start drawing. It doesn’t even matter what you draw. Within a certain amount of time, your thoughts will become more harmonious and you’ll calm down.

To help you get started, here’s what to do if you’re feeling…

  • Tired: draw flowers
  • Angry: draw lines
  • In pain: build a model
  • Bored: colour in a sheet of paper in various colours
  • Sad: paint a rainbow
  • Scared: knit something
  • Worried: make a doll
  • Indignant: tear a piece of paper into small pieces and arrange it into a pattern
  • Anxious: do some origami
  • Tense: draw patterns
  • Nostalgic: draw a maze
  • Disappointed: copy a portrait or painting
  • In despair: draw your way out
  • Confused: draw an Indian mandala
  • That you need to restore your strength: make a landscape painting
  • That you can’t make sense of your feelings: paint a self-portrait
  • That you need to remember this moment: draw some coloured patterns
  • That you need to put your thoughts in order: draw honeycombs or squares
  • That you need to take the time to make the right choice: draw waves and circles
  • That you’re stuck in a rut: draw spirals
  • That you need to make sense of your most important goal: draw target symbols.
