Fun and Games: Where in the world?

One of the primary methods of coping with mental health and/or emotional distress is to distract your mind from the problem(s) at hand. Although we all have unique ways to distract ourselves (some people venture into the garden, others spend time with a certain 900 year old Time Lord) some methods of distraction are universal.

One of the most common distraction techniques are puzzles and quizzes. Whether it’s sitting down with a tough Sudoku or wiling away the hours with a jigsaw puzzle, spending time enjoying these activities is not only emotionally productive but can prove beneficial to both mood and memory.

This week, we’re going to have a little bit of fun (whilst honing this particular coping skill) with a variety of puzzles, quizzes and games.

Enjoy! :)

All you have to do is fill in the blanks of the inspirational quote below (you know, like on that game show, only without the necessity of buying a vowel!)

Hint: each of the photos are of famous places, once you’ve correctly identified them, rearrange the first letters to complete the quote (e.g. the first photograph is of Amsterdam, thus one of the missing letters is A)
