News > Book Review: Joy of Zentangle: Drawing your Way to Increased Creativity, Focus and Well-Being

Now, thanks to Zentangle, I know how the Buddha probably spent his childhood. Zentangle is a zen art garden where paper replaces the sandbox. On each page of the book The Joy of Zentangle: Drawing Your Way to Increased Creativity, Focus, and Well-Being lies a design pattern and a step by step visual guide for the drawer to follow.

This wise book not only emphasizes the importance of art, but asserts that relaxation is key. This paperback art manual also contains designs that other doodlers have made and sent in as a result of reading the book. Life tips and inspirational stories are sprinkled throughout the 159 paged work to remind people that you don’t have to strike it rich to reap the benefits of art.

This is a proven way to reduce stress and increase creativity, all while relaxing and doing some “yoga for your brain” as it has been described by some. Whilst this book has helped many people to relax, it might not work for everyone. This is because different things work for different people. For example, some people seem to achieve similar results of being relaxed and de-stressed after using some CBD oils and tinctures. These products are believed to be relaxing, however, it might be worth reading this CBDistillery review to see if other people found these products effective or not. Both of these methods should promote relaxation and reduce stress.

As a matter of fact, book publisher Design Originals has also come out with a new Zentangle card decks called exactly that – Yoga for Your Brain Zentangle Decks.

Zentangle is a pioneer in bringing to light the link between well-being and art and makes it possible for anyone get zen with only a pen! Look them up on or click here to purchase from an Etsy site and start creatively relaxing!
