Also COLOURING for adults is this Sunday again at the Tawa Community Centre.
Today is one of my favourite days, it’s Yarnbombing day!!
My secret hobby
Crafting, crocheting, reading, puzzling etc can help relax your mind, as you’re giving it something to concentrate on, in the here and now.
That way you stop yourself from worrying, and you can break the spiral of feeling anxious, or depressed -> having unhappy thoughts -> not doing the things anymore that you used to do -> feeling more anxious, depressed or unhappy.
So this week find an activity that keeps your mind focussed and try to do this every day. Maybe pick up something you used to enjoy doing, even if you don’t think you’ll enjoy it.
It can be colouring, reading, or jigsaw puzzles, anything!
Yes your attention will wander, that is normal! If you notice this has happened, just kindly bring your attention back to your activity.
Have a great week, hope this is useful for you.

My Wednesday evening “learn to crochet for calmness” class finished last Wednesday and I’m super proud of my students!! I’m also super grateful for the awesome feedback they gave me on the course 💜 Thank you!!!
We had a great morning full of colouring and zendoodle yesterday in the Tawa Community Centre and lots of people came to chill and chat!!
FREE WORKOUT STARTS HERE:
If you want to start practicing mindfulness, so you feel better, are more relaxed and worry less, you have to make it easy for yourself. And the easiest way is to take an activity that you are doing already, and make that a mindfulness exercise. So doing what you are doing anyway, just now doing it mindfully.
This can be brushing your teeth, rinsing your shampoo, emptying the dishwasher, having your morning cuppa, walking home from the station, or hanging the laundry outside. The last one is my favorite!!
Make it mindful by bringing your full attention to your senses in the here and now. What can you see, feel, hear, touch, smell right here, right now while you are doing what you are doing. Doestn’t have to take more than a few minutes!!
You will notice you get easily distracted by anything that pops up in your mind, and that doesn’t matter at all. Actually, that is super normal to happen!
Just notice you get distracted, and kindly bring your attention back to the activity you were doing mindfully.
Go on, try it this week!
Have a great week!
