Mindfulness and Art
I am currently doing a course on Mindfulness and I love it. It is very helpful for someone like me, who worries a lot about things. Past hurts and future fears can spoil the current moment we are in and that is a waste of life, really.
So, as I am very busy until the end of June, which is taking me away from doing the art that I want to do, I have decided to be mindful when I do make art, to treasure the moment and enjoy the here and now.
I usually listen to the radio or an audio book when I work, but for half an hour each day, I work in my sketchbooks in silence and savour the moment.
At least I am not wishing my life away as I wait for the end of June to arrive (well, OK, maybe a bit)!
