Mindfulness through drawing and coloring

The art of centering yourself and getting into the zone.
I always do a little art exercise, sometimes simple lines, sometimes more elaborate patterns to help me clear the mind before starting a new project.

Here is a drawing

Mindfulness through drawing

Here is another little drawing, done for my mindfulness class.
It helps focus and center yourself.
Have a go.

Start with a small square, you won't be daunted by blank page syndrome.

Mindfulness through drawing

Another little exercise in mindful drawing and coloring....
why don't you try having a go.
Start with a point and then build on it.  go with the feeling and mood of the moment and see where it leads you
I like doing little exercises like these, it helps clear the mind and gain focus on the task ahead.
