Balance Stones Stacking Benefits
Stone Stacking is a practice that requires nothing more than some time and a location. There is no time limit, no race and no stress. You have infinite resource and there is no set path. All these elements lead Stone stacking to be extremely relaxing and also develops a sense of patience as you meander your way to creating the next stack. Finding the centre point of gravity can prove tricky and requires a slow steady hand.
Seeing your stack before you build it is difficult. The key element with creative processing is to identify from sight and touch the likely hood of the stone being able to be balanced, but also provide a platform for the next balance on top. As such creative processing becomes very important.
Concentration and focus
Stone stacking is an excellent way to clear your mind of other things. Focusing on a single task will help focus your mind and concentrate. By stacking regularly you can build up a great ability to really concentrate and focus in the moment.
Hand eye coordination
Finding the point of gravity to balance is as much a feel as it is a look. Depth perception can be blurred when stacking and it is key to trust the hands and feel of the stone as your are stacking. This combination of hand eye coordination has shown to improve hand eye coordination in many other ways.
