When I was a little girl, I loved to color. For those of you who can commensurate, I’m sure you can remember the joy of opening up a fresh box of crayons or perfectly sharpened colored pencils. For some reason, as I got older, I forgot that I loved to color. In my therapy practice, I’ve found that most adults have forgotten too.
When I ask clients “When was the last time you colored?”, they usually look perplexed. Most of them have no idea that there are coloring books available for adults and that the act of coloring can actually be a meditative activity. My favorite kind of coloring books to recommend are pre-designed mandalas; beautiful designs that promote a sense of balance, calmness, and well-being.
Many of my clients have benefited from re-discovering the joy of coloring and have found the practice to be extremely relaxing. If you’re looking for an added meditation practice or are in need of self-care, why not give it a try?
Here’s a link to one of the coloring books on Amazon, it’ll be on your doorstep in no time.
