Take a Break: Try Stacking Stones

A neighbor has a stack of neatly balanced rocks by his driveway and I’m enthralled with it. So on one of my walks, I spent some time finding rocks and trying to balance them. It’s actually easier than you think and completely absorbing.

There are no gimmicks, wires, glues, rings or other supports in stacking stones. Rather it’s about finding the balance and making use of the contours of the stone. It does require some patience, but it’s such a soothing activity and requires your full attention. 

Check out the The Happy Scientist’s website on stone stacking.
