30 Days of New Developing Mindful Creativity – Stop Scattered Brain!
Is your mind scattered? Thoughts, things you need to do, remember and ideas pop into and out of the mind at lightening speed. I’m trying mindful creativity on a regular basis will calm my mind.
Mindful creativity exercise. Look up. What do you see? Take a moment and really look at what’s in front of you. What colors do you see? What do you hear? Take a deep breath. What do you smell in the air around you? Are you cool or warm?
Do you realize you just spent time being mindful? You focused on your surrounding completely. Now, how can being mindful help you in your daily life? Well, if you’re like me and have 27 different things popping in and out our your head in the course of a minute. Or you need help remembering what someone told you. Or, if you’re looking for a way to calm your mind, Mindful Creativity might help.

Ready to start your mindfulness?
Our Design Workshop Facebook group is a place for DIY help, inspiration, and guidance. We even did 30 days of decluttering tips and tricks in January. The 30 days of Decluttering are under the guides tab.
The group is private, so you need to request to join.
A few mindfulness tips
There are no right or wrong ways to do mindful creativity. Simply work at staying completely focused on the project. Let everything else go for at least 15 minutes. We are “training” our minds to focus.
A timer on your watch or a kitchen timer is helpful.
While we will not share your projects in our group, unless you want to share, you might take pictures of some projects. Then save projects for our “Bonus” at the end of the 30 days.
Remember the complete 30 Mindful Creative projects stay in the guides area on the Facebook group. Available anytime.
Hope to see you at the Design Workshop!
