You will probably find that now, more than ever, diversions are an important part of enhancing your quality of life. Seek out the activities that you would normally do to lift your spirits, stimulate your mind, and tap into your creative potential - or explore new activities. Attend concerts, go to sporting events, play board games, enroll in a class that you have always wanted to take, do crafts, play an instrument, exercise, or take a vacation. There may be classes or activities available to you at the center where you are being treated, or you may be able to work with an occupational therapist or an art therapist .
