F Is For Felt-Tip Pens
I was going to write today about Focus, but having covered awareness a few days ago I thought I’d cover something that seems to be all the rage at the moment – and something that you can easily adopt to assist you in moving towards having a Mindfulness Mindset.
A couple of years ago I wrote a WISH post all about colouring books, and since then they seem to have become the real buzz thing. I think nearly every woman I know got one for Christmas last year! But how does getting your felt tip pens out help you to be mindful?
Well, it turns out that F is actually all about Focus after all! Because that’s what colouring in allows you to do – the great thing about these colouring books is that they take your focus. As you concentrate on the patterns and colours, you stop thinking about what you did earlier that day, and stop worrying about what you’ve got coming up.
Instead of giving your attention to things that are outside of your control, you focus fully on what you’ve got in front of you – welcome to life in the moment!
Getting your felt tip pens out is a great way of getting Mindful for anybody, but if you struggle with a traditional meditation style then these colouring books could be perfect for you?
If you’ve ever tried out these colouring books, or know of someone who might find giving them a go useful, why not give this post a share so others can benefit from them too.
