I don’t know about you, but when work is really piling up and I feel myself getting stressed, that’s usually a sign that it’s time to take a few steps back from the computer and take a break. Usually I walk my dog to the park or, if it’s nice out, meditate in the backyard using the Headspace app.
I think these Thoreau Notecards from Princeton Architectural Press are the stationery equivalent of the process, with the benefit of bringing someone else needing a dose of serenity into the mix. Designed with an eye on Thoreau’s simplicity and Mother Nature’s breathtaking beauty, these are the first in a series of mindfulness notecards — Buddha and William Morris boxed sets follow this release.
Full of wisdom from the famed environmentalist, political activist, walker and tax resister, and wrapped in gorgeous envelopes no less, these are a treat to behold and send as you channel your inner philosopher.
Pick up a box of 12 here on Amazon for $13.53 (a nice little discount from the list price of $14.95). Meanwhile, The Paper Chronicles will be on hiatus as I head to Haiti as part of Bridgewater Candle’s Rice Bowl Brand Experience Trip tomorrow (!) to see the impact of their Light a Candle, Feed a Child program firsthand.
I am so excited to meet the rest of the team and experience Haiti, and, of course, those children whose lives are bettered by this incredible program (I blogged about it a while back here). Looking forward to sharing my experiences here once I get back!
