After breakfast a period of occupational therapy should follow. The purpose is to capture the patient’s interest, concentration and attention by doing something practical. This distraction is an essential part of the treatment, for the patient must not be left alone and to his own thoughts, which have a tendency to become more depressing as he broods. If his attention can be diverted to everyday realities, depressing thoughts and feelings will have less chance to assert their influence on his mind. In the field of emotions an analogy can be drawn with the working of two transmission wheels: while the belt drives only one wheel, no power is transmitted to the other one. Applied to the patient, this means that we must see to it that he continually occupies himself, mentally, spiritually or physically, with the realities of life. If we succeed in this, he will gradually be lifted out of his condition marked by morbid sensitivity and imaginations, unhealthy fantasies and dreams. For those who have an artistic nature, arts and crafts projects are especially indicated as they divert and satisfy the patient without the need for constant encouragement. They also constitute a pleasant bridge between the worlds of fantasy and reality.
