Letting the mind wander is crucial to creativity – and taking a break from screens is one of the best things you can do for your health and wellbeing, not to mention your ability to focus and work efficiently. Sculpted by hand in Portland, Ore., this Desktop Zen Garden encourages play, mindfulness and a break from nerve-jangling alerts and notifications. Use your hands to spin and twist the sculpted spheres through the sand to create captivating patterns and shapes. Come back to your tasks and to-dos refreshed.

To use: Fill sand to the height of the lower lip, but no higher. Swirl and softly shake the tray to smooth out the sand and create an even surface. Play gently – this isn’t Bocci ball! Avoid knocking the spheres into each other – scraping or dropping them can chip and degrade their surfaces.
