We could ALL do with a bit more mindfulness in our lives.
If you ever feel like time, the world, and everything around you moves a bit too quickly, this could be just what you need.
What is mindfulness?
Mindfulness has been proven to improve mental wellbeing by decreasing stress, preventing and treating illnesses, helping people cope, enhancing relationships and improving our ability to focus.
According to the NHS website:
‘Paying more attention to the present moment – to your own thoughts and feelings, and to the world around you – can improve your mental wellbeing.
Some people call this awareness "mindfulness". Mindfulness can help us enjoy life more and understand ourselves better. You can take steps to develop it in your own life.’
How can Hama Beads make me more mindful?
Hama Beads and mindfulness have been paired for a long time, particularly by parents who have contacted us to say they do Hama Beads with their children because they find it helps them relax.
We also hear cases of Hama Beads having helped people cope during hospital stays, of dementia suffers who have found calm by using Hama Beads, and of people with disabilities who find making Hama Beads designs therapeutic. (See our blogs Dementia Therapy and How Hama Beads changed my life.)
In recent years, the benefits of mindfulness have been promoted and highly recommended for mental wellbeing, signalling the need for the Mindfulness Boxes.

Who is mindfulness for?
It doesn’t matter what age you are: the Mindfulness Boxes can be used in the classroom, in the workplace or at home.
We believe that creativity is one of the keys to unwinding and clearing your head.
Sit down and let your thoughts wander as you either follow the patterns we have given you, or choose the freedom of your own designs.
There’s no right or wrong here!
Still don’t know what mindfulness is?
