Spring Mandala

I found myself getting creative in my spare moments this week.  Inspired by the spring flowers that are now popping up all over the place.  I started with a primrose and then just couldn’t stop.  It never ceases to amaze me how calming the action of pen on paper can be.

Tangles for Mindfulness

I’ve been taking part in the Zentangle a day challenge via the Mindful Creativity with Tangles Facebook group for a couple of months now.  It provides 10 mins of intense focus and relaxation each day – I’ve found it as useful as a much longer period of mediation.  Some of the tangles are a real challenge, others feel more natural – the trick is to just allow yourself to “go with the flow”.  Check out the Facebook Group here.

An added benefit – they really look good in my journal!
