Less Work More Zen

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.

Check out wendiland on Etsy for great modern alternatives to Japanese Zen Gardens.  Itty Bitty succulents and furry moss balls in little beds of goodness.   The cactus is your obstacle and the sand is your peace.

Is water your garden of choice or sand?

Less work, more zen.  You deserve it.

Ommmmmm.
