Kate is a strong believer in the power of art for relaxing the mind. It is one of the most wonderful uses of mindfulness. Even if you don't claim to be an artist, by just focusing on an object, exploring it with your senses and drawing what you see - not what you think you see - will happily absorb you in the most productive form of beautiful escapism!
There are fun ways of exploring art which surprise the mind and hand. This is one of those great times when the journey is a great part of the process and the results can be amazing!
