Five benefits of mindful coloring.


Mindful Coloring asks us to focus on how we choose and apply colors in a design that brings our awareness to the present moment. This is similar to meditation and, frankly, more fun. We practice letting go of thoughts about tomorrow or yesterday or if we will finish the piece.

We bring ourselves back to the present moment over and over again. When we think about the past or the future, we gently bring our awareness back to what we are doing in the present moment.

We let go of judging whether the coloring in is good or bad, excellent or terrible, or whether we are good at it or not. There is no right or wrong way to color in; it is a form of self-expression. We enlarge our capacity for non-judgment.

Mindful coloring can improve our overall sense of well-being. We feel more relaxed by paying attention to the present moment. We let go of stress and calm down. We learn an easy creative way to wind down.
