Free Weekly Mindfulness Workout

colouringmentalhealth

Hello and good morning!
Is it holidays in your home? It is in ours! When I start colouring, and I leave my colouring out on the table most of times, I usually find my kids start colouring too!
It’s relaxing and a great way to spend some time together.
 
For mental health awareness week there is a colouring competition and you can find it here:
#MHAW
 
So this week, get some colouring done, and you know it is not just for children, adults can colour too!
 
Have a great week, show me what you colour!

Easy Now Mindfulness Zendoodle Challenge
 
This week I have a zendoodle challenge for you. No need to be artistic or have an arts degree, everybody can do this, just follow these 8 steps!
So here we go:
 
1. Grab a pencil, a black sharpie/fineliner, paper and a round or square template. I used a glass to make a circle, you can also use square coaster or whatever you can find.
 
2. Use your pencil to go round your template to make a circle or square.
 
3. With your pencil draw 2 lines right through your template, to create 4 empty spaces. Any 4 spaces are fine!
 
3. Get your black sharpie and fill one space with this pattern:

4. Fill another space with this pattern:
 
5. Fill another space with this pattern:
6. Fill a space with this pattern:
 
7. If you have any remaining spaces, you can fill this with circles of all different sizes and colour black around them.
 
8. Finished, or you can colour your zendoodle if you like. What ever you do, it will look stunning!!
 
Post your zendoodle to my page or in the comments as I will love to see how yours turned out!!!
 
Have a great week,
M
