Rock painting can be a great way to practice mindfulness as it allows you to focus your attention on the present moment while engaging in a creative activity. Remember, the goal is to relax, reduce stress and anxiety and enjoy the process of creating, not to produce a perfect piece of art. So, have fun and let your creativity flow!
Glitter jars (or calm-down jars) have been used as a mindfulness practice for children and adults for years. When someone is struggling with their emotions, the glitter in a shaken jar is like their thoughts, which like the glitter, calms down eventually.
I find watercolours very satisfying. Sometimes only playing with colours and not necessarily creating anything in particular works for me. During the lockdown, I used to do a daily 15-minute watercolour practice, and it felt great. I’m trying to return to this, even if not every day. I try to find a couple of minutes to myself to relax and watch the pigment spread on the paper.
