All pen strokes in Zentangle are made with unhurried, deliberate attention. It is this slowing down and paying attention to what your hand is doing that provides a way for you to become truly present in the moment. By focusing all of your attention as you watch the beautiful marks appear, you are able to forget for a while all of the other distractions, pains, and worries that you may have in your life.
Zentangle gives you a tool for deliberately changing your focus. Worry never helped anyone, but attempting to try and talk yourself out of worrying rarely works. What does work is being able to think about something else for a while. With Zentangle, you can take a mini-vacation whenever and wherever you want.
