We all know flow, even if we don’t yet know what to call it: that blissful state of absorption, when you’re so engaged with what you’re doing that you don’t notice the time passing. Psychologists have discovered that this still, almost meditative condition brings us a host of mental health benefits: balance, tranquility, and less stress. Jigsaw puzzling is an easy way to find flow, which is why it has boomed so dramatically in recent years. With the first of Skittledog’s Flow puzzles, Elin Svensson uses harmonious forms and colors, inspired by the forests of her native Sweden, to take the puzzler on a gentle journey to a place of calm. The box also includes a poster with the complete illustration and a short introduction to the flow state and its benefits.
Finished puzzle is a 25 1/2-inch, 1,000-piece circular puzzle that comes in a 10 5/8 x 10 5/8" box.
