Stress Relief~Doodle Style!

Do you practice Zen? Zen for all sakes and purposes = meditation. When we focus on something that helps reduce our stress then we benefit. For me that come sin many forms: word searches, reading my bible, walking and doodling!

My family has recently had the misfortune of having my dad hospitalized. Although he is doing much better now he did spend 13 days in there and after many, many tests, cases upon cases of Saline, enormous amounts of blood taken and several blood transfusions they got to the bottom of his issues and I believe due to many prayers said on his behalf, he is now on the road to recovery and I could not be happier. I mean that's my dad!

While he had to have a surgery during his stay in the hospital I brought my pens, markers, pencils and paper and had the family doodling and working on Zentangles. This has been a favorite way to pass time of mine for years. Here is a Zentangle I did to help calm my nerves that morning of his surgery. I call it: Waiting


  1. I showed this to my daughter... she loved the idea and has been Zentangling all week! I'll try to link one of her's this week.

  2. When I look at this, it seems like all kinds of forces that know they belong together and know they must come together to convey harmony, but needed to be expressed in order to work out where they fit and how that position would lend to the healing process.
