Every day millions of us sit in front of a computer
screen tapping away at a keyboard and don't create anything real.
Undertaking an origami project is a chance to get creative and make
turning a piece of paper into a 3D sculpture is a meditative journey
that instils in us a sense of pride, competence and accomplishment.
As we slow down and start to fold paper, which is so beautifully tactile,
so we start to unfold our minds.
Worries and troubles float away as we start to fold and follow the instructions,
fully focused on the task at hand, able to mindfully contemplate our
intentions, hopes and dreams.
Why not sit with a friend or a child and fold together?
Like colouring in, origami is a wonderful shared pursuit - as you get
into it and find 'flow',
time is suspended and as you discover the art of origami,
so you start to lead a more authentic,
simple and calmer life.
