Find Your Zen with Mindful Slow Entertainment
Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to unwind. They demand attention which makes doing them, both absorbing and meditative at the same time. When concentrating on creative pursuits like art, craft or indeed jigsaw puzzles, you subconsciously tune out other distracting thoughts. In essence, your mind goes blank. Furthermore this quieting of the mind is highly therapeutic and forms the basis of meditation practice in eastern religions and philosophies. In Zen Buddhism, every action can become a source of meditation. From simply walking to making things, to doing jigsaws. The art of Zen is to dedicate your mind and thoughts only to the action that you are doing now.
