I have been unwell for quite some time now and I realise I have to slow down a bit, stop trying to get everything done ‘Yesterday’ and enjoy the moment without thinking too far ahead.
So how to stop the constant mind chatter? Yoga, meditation, massage? Nah, I like to open my journal and draw, write or doodle, my mind instantly quiets down and concentrates on the marks I am making on the paper. It doesn’t matter if my drawings are not spectacular works of art, (as if!), it’s great practice, it clears my mind and I have lovely little memories to look back on.
