With hand illustrated prompts and thoughtful quotes, Daily Zen Doodles will inspire you to lose yourself in the contemplative act of drawing. Each page is an invitation to sketch, relax, focus and reach toward inner peace.

My Review: 
What a wonderful thing do wine down with at the end of my day. I have a hard time sleeping due to the fact that my mind races off in a million different directions. 

When first received this I was like "YEAH!"  Thumped thru the pages and just went nuts over all the different things and prompts that can help you focus on just relaxing and finding a way to wined down.

As said above in the synopsis, there is a years worth of prompts. And it is so true with in the 384 pages the creations are just amazing. Author Meera Lee Patel is a wonderful encourager, as well as an inspiration. Putting into a book that has helped me a many a night already, but also when my anxiety or my fibro. fog starts, I know that if I pick this book up it will help me to focus back to something I enjoy and my mind settles back so I can relax. There has not been much that has done that for me in quite awhile. 

So for the reasons above I am giving this amazing book and author a Breath of Life Rating Of:

   Five Clock Rating!! 

Disclosure: I did receive the above book in exchange for my honest opinion and or review. But the Opinions are my own and yours may differ.
