Many of my students share with me how Zentangle has changed their lives. I have an example that happened last week.
Recently, my doctor ask me to chart my blood pressure for a week. Upon arriving home from driving 1/2 hour in San Diego traffic from babysitting at my daughters house, I took my blood pressure. Wow, it was 159/107. The traffic wasn't even bad.
My husband said to wait a half hour and re-take. During that half hour, I started "tangling" on a class I was going to teach. After a half hour, I took my blood pressure again - 130/75. Thank you Zentangle.
Zentangle is de-stressing among other helpful benefits like:
fear of flying
essential tremors/Parkinson's (helps eye hand coordination)
negative self images
Current research is being conducted to see if the Zentangle Method has effects on bipolar and schizophrenia patients.
Remember to tangle when you need a little break from stressful moments. It works.
