Kia ora! School holidays have started, term 1 went by so fast!
Yesterday I went to Te Papa for the new Toi Arts exhibition. There is an amazing art installation called Indra’s bow, made by Tiffany Singh, i’s made of lots of spices, gemstones, and other natural materials, and it smells amazing!
Have you seen it???
Practicing mindfulness is easy, you just give your mind something to focus on, that is present in the here and now. You can use your senses for this.
So this week, focus on what you can smell. You will quickly notice that your mind will start to figure out what you are smelling, and it will also judge the smells. This is your brain, trying to protect you from any danger!
Try to ignore this, just go outside for a walk and focus on the things you can smell around you.
Have a great week!
Healthy Mind, Happy Heart
PS Crochet for Relaxation runs again next term at Tawa Community College!!
