Origami Meditation

You don’t have to be sitting cross-legged with your eyes closed to meditate. There are many forms of meditation. For example, active meditation uses an action (often repetitive) to encourage meditation. Think of meditation as anything that moves you beyond your physical self into a state of quiet reflection. Some people use exercise or walking to meditate. I like to use origami. I learned how to make tiny paper stars and I find making them very calming.

Here are the instructions I used to learn how to make paper stars.

I have made enough of them now that I’ve started putting them in little jars. I like how they look all lined up in my office. You don’t need special origami paper either. Grab some scrap paper and cut it into long 1cm wide strips. They you can try it too!
