Draw your way out of worry

Updated: Mar 16, 2020

We all have days when we are too wound up, and are having trouble winding down through meditation.

Our minds turn like whirlwinds and everything is spinning.

The solution to your problem just won't enter your mind, but it might find a way to your heart through your hand.

Start with the most basic, a pen and a paper. Use whatever you have close by, be it a post-it or a page in your notebook.

Draw a line and draw the next line parallel to the first. Make another line where the first one ended and just continue to build some kind of pattern.

Just scribble, the best thing is if it's a pattern that you repeat, so your mind can go to work on your creative problem and leave space for the problem to be solved when you have calmed down. Don't be surprised if it happens before the pattern is completed.

I am sure that you have done something like this before, maybe in your school notebooks or while having long phone conversations. The good news is that cultural health science has now proven that it will decrease our anxiety levels within 20-30 minutes.

I hope you enjoyed this and I have big news coming up, the book Create to Flow and a card deck with 52 creative inspirations will be released shortly. It is a 3 month journey in creative self/discovery and naturally you will be notified as soon as it will be available.

Creative Regards Ingela
