Advent calendars have become a popular part of the seasonal build-up for children and grown-ups alike, the doors hiding everything from chocolate to gin. But this year, why not make yourself a calendar with a difference?
For many of us, the lead-up to Christmas can be busy and overwhelming, so our Mindful Moments advent calendar is designed to remind you to pause and take some time for you. Each day, we suggest a mindful meditation, observation or activity to help you feel calm, centred and ready to enjoy the season.
You can use our suggestions or, if you have a practice that works for you, add your own mindful moments too. Click the link below to download your daily prompts, then print them and assemble your calendar.
The full instructions on how to make this project are in issue 2 of Mindful Christmas magazine.
