CURIOUS BIRD | CURIOSITY CARDS – GARDEN OF THE MIND
Stray thoughts that turn into big ideas? Hazy-eyed daydreaming, or unconscious
problem-solving? Sometimes we all need a shift in perspective. But sadly, research shows that our propensity toward curiosity declines steadily with age as optimization culture sets in. Many of us are sheltering at home in the past months without rigid schedules and the steadfast pursuit of whatever was next on the calendar is well, canceled. Now we are left with a few hours to ponder and wonder, to learn something new, to tumble down a rabbit hole of whatever piques our interest.
This season is about new beginnings and this month, we’re helping you rediscover the joys of wonder! The Art of Curiosity was designed to do exactly that: reframe your thinking. Like a tarot deck for your wellbeing—these adorably illustrated cards are cute and mindful little reminders to take a second out of your day to stretch it out, get some vitamin D, or maybe take a living room dance break (or several) to shake out the stress. This whimsical and mindful deck will inspire you to follow your dreams and live a happier life while helping you free your mind from mental obstacles, so you can tap into your best potential.
When your intuition needs some pointing in the right direction, this deck of Curiosity Cards might give you some ideas. Featuring 10 colorful hand-illustrated cards by Stacy Moore with thought-provoking prompts and a beautiful print on matte card stock, this mind-freeing tool of self-discovery can be used intimately with yourself or together with your loved ones. A clever little stack with a chock full of surprises—the illustrations are also unique and the process of using them is very enlightening & fun at the same time. Simply write, doodle, or draw on each card following the prompts, then fit all the cards together, and (surprise!) they form one big picture. A gorgeous roadmap especially during any time of transition or uncertainty, let the rediscovery of curiosity ignite that rebellious thrill of asking “why” or “how” which will get you thinking about life’s strange little curiosities differently! Take this time to make the choices that allow you to show your strengths and foster curiosity mindfully. Instead of muddling through the day following the usual routine, look for those moments where there’s potential to learn something new, expand an interest, or see a perspective in a way you haven’t or wouldn’t have previously and watch your life flourish!
