Mindful art activities
Have you ever been so engrossed in an activity that you have lost track of time, only concentrating on the activity? That could be described as a form of meditation .

Traditional meditation focuses on the body and breathing, emotions and thoughts.  By creating art and focusing only on the process and moment, we can have fun, and forget about the ‘end result’.  Try out these activities and you may find that you start to relax, and enjoy the movements your brush or pen makes, the mixing of colours and the making of marks.
