Beauty of imperfection
Acceptance of inner most self
Ensō (円相) is a circluar form that is hand-drawn in one or two uninhibited brushstrokes to express a moment when the mind is free to let the body create .
The Enso circle formed the inspiration and basis for the ActiveBeing logo. The idea of acceptance of the inner most self and the concept of 'being enough' resonated with our Founder on her own personal mental health journey.
Another source of inspiration and learning is Happiful magazine. Articles are regularly shared with clients to help their knowledge and personal development. Happiful is bright, interesting and covers so many Mental Health topics. It has been an invaluable resource.
Taking the time to be kind to yourself, is a key part of mindful self-compassion. It also links with the use of daily affirmations that help shift the mindset. Personal experience has shown that kindness statement, affirmations or mantras have been helpful in re-shaping negative thoughts, preventing rumination, or simply to re-establish self confidence and contentedness with where and who we are.
