Practicing mindfulness is an increasingly popular and recognized method for reducing stress, but for those needing to keep their hands busy in order to ease their anxieties, mindfulness can be difficult. While fidget toys can work in a pinch, sometimes you just want more. If you’ve tried to keep your mind clear and your hands busy with things like adult coloring books, and you’ve found that still doesn’t do much for you (all that pressure to stay inside the lines!), you might want to try the Buddha Board.

 

A unique art and mindfulness product, the Buddha Board is similar to a paint canvas and described as “an Etch-a-Sketch, but with water.” Create your own watercolor creation on the board’s surface, but then, when the water evaporates, so does the artwork, leaving you to experience the artistic process in the moment, without worry about mistakes or “getting it perfect.” All you have to do is paint.

 

According to the creators, “Our boards are meant to encourage you to master the art of letting go. Impermanence and non-attachment is a staple of Buddhist thinking and thats where we got our name. Its really important to just be in the moment and to enjoy the process.”

 

Buddha Boards come in multiple sizes and colors and start at $17.95.
