Mindful origami is really taking off as a way to zen and happiness whilst aiding relaxation, concentration, hand eye co-ordination and memory. There is even a book about it – Mindful Origami which promises to help us fold our worries away.
The book follows an explosion in the popularity of mindful colouring with UK stores reporting an 8% boost in sales due to the craze, and origami looks to be the gaining popularity in the same way.
Origami IS addictive and just takes a few minutes to learn to make a crane or a flower – then you find yourself making lots and lots of them and using them to make garlands to decorate your home. Have a go….!
For a bigger challenge guaranteed to totally absorb you there are lots of modular models. This one took me all evening but it is VERY satisfying!
So if you are feeling like getting a bit mindful, give it a go, and let me know how you get on 🙂
