Disney's Zen and Rowling's Writing

The soothing sounds of water, the comforting sounds of the city, the relaxing sounds of nature, and more.

All set to glorious animation from some of your favourite Disney films.

This week, Disney+ introduced ZENIMATION, a series of short, curated animations that invite you to, "Refresh your senses with a moment of mindfulness." It's available to all Disney+ subscribers right now.

I'm not one who practices mindfulness -- although perhaps I should be -- but "Disney Presents: Meditation" is something I just had to try.

And it didn't take long before I was transfixed with the "Water" episode I watched; the five-minute episode flew by.

The Disney+ service has already been a lifesaver for parents who suddenly have a LOT more time alone with their kids during the day, but this new series is a fun way to give us frantic adults a moment of tranquillity during these "interesting" times.

The message that appeared on the screen at the end of each episode, right before the credits, was also a nice touch:

ZENIMATION is a tribute to the visual and sound artists who have created Walt Disney animation Studios' legacy of films.

That's a nice way for Disney to celebrate both its storied past and the people who have made the magic happen.
