*Flow state is imperative to our mental health. Single or monotasking allows one to be in the moment, to concentrate on the senses. Finding that flow state or I-have-lost-all-track-of-time sensation, gives one space and time to enjoy calm. Being in flow is restorative we intend to achieve this through pen + paper therapy, through the power of the written word.

Flow state helps us:

  • increase self-esteem
  • improve eye and hand coordination
  • release stress and tension
  • improve memory
  • increase attention span
  • lowers heart rate and blood pressure
  • increase communication skills thus self-expression 

What are affirmations and why do they matter?

Affirmations or positive statements enable us to notice our words and thoughts. These phrases can shape our destiny and help us release worry and enjoy life.

What are mudras and why are they powerful?

Self-expression in the palm of your hand, mudras are hand gestures that enhance energy through the fingers. These simple positions are a natural way to harness the power of flow in the body. They can be used for quick change in the body.
