If you’re interested in Zentangle (or maybe just interested in learning to chill a bit), here’s a great article on the calming benefits of Zentangle. In her article, “Calm Down and Get Your Zentangle On,” Cathy Malchiodi explains succinctly what Zentangle is (vs. misnomers like “doodling”): Zentangling or tangling is actually a formalized process that […]
