Looking for a simple and fun way to relax, and lower stress and anxiety? Start by looking no further than a box of crayons or colored pencils. Whether you have fond memories of coloring as a child or you’re still a novice, coloring as an adult can have very therapeutic properties.
Coloring may help you:
Experience relief by entering a meditative state
Lower stress and anxiety levels
Let go of negative thoughts and welcome positive ones
Focus on the moment to achieve mindfulness
Promote creation over consumption by unplugging from technology
The best part? You don’t have to be an artist to do it!
It’s easy to get started.
Simply download the Remembering A Life coloring sheets, print them, and start to color! Whether you prefer colored pencils or markers or want to revisit your youth and open a fresh box of crayons, it’s easy to create a masterpiece! (And, despite what you may have heard, it’s perfectly acceptable to color outside the lines!)
