I’m all for living a healthy, nutritious lifestyle and believe true beauty comes from within. Therefore, I make sure I intake enough of the right supplements. I ordered some vitamins from Advanced Nutrition Programme. Which arrived this week in an adorable box and packaged in lovely tins; one side of the invoice looked like it belonged to a mindful colouring book.
This reminded me of the very first colouring book I bought a few years ago, when the trend first hit bookshelves, everywhere. Excited with my (then) new buy, I grabbed some gel pens and wasted no time in filling out the pages. I was so fixated with colouring inside the lines, I blissfully forgot about my anxiety. And so my love for mandala art began.
Traditionally mandala has a long spiritual history and is believed to be therapeutic. To unwind I started drawing mandala art on Photoshop. It first started with an hour in the evening and soon grew to half a day. I can truly say this is the best part of the day; there is no deadline or expectation. I can draw and colour at my own pace and ease.
I will soon be sharing some of the bliss, so watch this space.
