With crazy work schedules, and home lives, I think we could all agree that we need a little more peace in our lives.
Zen gardens are great when you need a little time to relax and take a moment to yourself to just literally ZEN OUT. Don’t settle for some boring zen garden though. Add some color and style to your zen and your home/office/space. Draw around aimlessly in a vase of colorful sand. Doodle and design. Take your mind off stress and worries. Relax.
