How to Get in the Zen or the Zone
Starting the day at the breakfast table with remnants of my birthday flowers helps.
Practicing mindfulness seems to be a big business. Some believe you have to do meditation. ARG! meditation. NO THANKS!
"I met people who really enjoyed their lives on a daily basis. Spending time with friends. Savoring delicious lunches. Continuing their artistic pursuits .... hiking in the mountains on weekends and reconnecting with nature" Amanda Cook
Another really good article I found called 13 Things Mindful People Do Differently Every Day. I am working on the "not checking the phone" bit but I am skipping the sitting and meditating part. Sitting in the studio lost in the process of painting, sewing, doodling, or photographing puts me right in the zone.
Right now I am working on craft felt
for my yarn/craft tata trees, and integrating two pieces Nancy made with felt pieces stitched together.
It was a gorgeous sunny day on Sunday and I finally got another tree done.
No mountains around here, but beautiful state parks, bike trails, a friendly town, pals to lunch with, and plenty of art to do.
Hope you enjoyed the links and found them helpful. Until Next Time Cheerio
