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.
Learn to crochet for relaxation starts 6 June, 7-9 pm Tawa Wellington.
Last week before the long Easter weekend!!
Hope this means that you get some time for you!
By now you will know that I’m a big fan of Creative Mindfulness.
Mindfulness is meditation too, but often thiscan be really hard, especially for busy people!!
Being creative can be a great alternative.
Making something, gives your busy mind something to focus on. That can break the cycle of busy thinking about lots of things that only make you feel more stressed.
So, this week, come up with things that you could be making when you take the t
ime. And go for it!
Even looking for inspiration, can be relaxing!

FREE weekly mindfulness
Hello and happy Monday!!
Last week I noticed something interesting. Well I found it interesting! 🙂
I was surprised by a probably impulsive and judgemental comment on a post. And the reason it surprised me, is that I hardly ever read comments like this.
The good thing is that I must be surrounded by loving and kind people on Facebook that always leave me positive and kind comments!! So that also made this comment stand out more.
It also got me thinking that being kind, nice, accepting, positive, complimenting is a habit. And if we all train ourselves to have this habit, the negativism will only stand out more, and can be ignored more easily.
So this week make an effort to be aware of your kindness, and thankful of kindness of others.
Have a great week,
