Art and Living in the present

If you are like me and suffer from overthinking and you feel that your brain never stops jumping from one thing to another: memories, events, plans, projects, what ifs, etc etc You will find that hobbies in form of art are the best to quiet your mind.

I find crochet, cooking, baking, photography, painting, Jewelry making very relaxing. I am so engrossed in the act of creating something beautiful, or tasty that I can’t think of anything else. My brain is focused on one thing: creation.

My hobbies are my escape, my meditation, my mindfulness. The only moments I am living in the present, are the moments I am creating something.
