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!
