Calm is something we all need to cultivate in our stressful adult lives. However, we’re not limited to the obvious, more mainstream methods of therapeutic activity or meditative practices: yoga, meditation, journaling, reading, walking, etc.
Here is a list of activities that are very calming because they are gentle or because they take keen concentration that can bring us into the present moment and relax us…
- Knitting, crocheting, macrame etc.
- Martial Arts
- Cooking or baking
- Animal grooming
- Brushing hair (yours, child’s, dog’s etc.)
- Playing with beads or marbles
- Dancing and singing
