Introducing Useful.

Being out of work can really affect your state of mind. We all know what it’s like: one day you’ve got a job and you’re feeling productive, valued, respected, and purposeful in your day, and the next… there’s a vacuum, and it’s all too easy to fall into it feeling useless. Why? It’s not true at all that we are useless, but we feel useless. The truth is, we’re still worthy and talented and full of potential to give, but our brains tend to play nasty tricks on us when they’ve got nothing else to do.

That’s why Useful. exists: to give you some fun activity sheets to keep your head straight. Best of all, they’re free to use, because money shouldn’t be a factor. Seriously. Just download them.

And, this is a living project. If you want to suggest anything that works for you, or any problem you’ve got that Useful. doesn’t currently address, just tell me your story. I’d really love to read what you’ve got to say, and turn it into something that helps you, and anyone like you. Because being human is a lot easier when we recognize that everyone around us is, too.
