Craft Your Way To Mindfulness

Crafting really can change your life! You will have heard the term 'mindfulness' everywhere, but how can you get involved in this new-found practise? Crafting is always the answer. With fast-paced jobs and busy schedules, it's important we take time for ourselves and make sure that we properly de-stress. In our opinion, the only way to truly do this is to get creative. You may sit down in front of the TV, or dive into a book, but if you're anything like us, you'll find that your mind is still wandering. When we're crafting we are completely invested in what we're doing – whether that be concentrating on tricky stitches or choosing which coloured pencil to pick up next. The point is, our mind is calm, and our mind is mindful. Watching yarn turn into a beautiful garment is one of the greatest feelings and is certainly classed as mindfulness – if this sounds familiar then you're already a master. Below you'll find 15 – yes 15! – FREE projects that you can download right away. Take 10 minutes of me-time on us. Go on, you deserve it. Simply click on the picture to find the project!
