#019 | Color Your Self Calm

734 views
2 mins read

Recently, without thinking twice, I picked up a crayon and began to color my self calm with my kids.

It was only after a couple of minutes that I came to a few realizations:

1) This is therapeutic and calming. This moment of zen was short lived, because I also realized;

2) I don’t even have kids and I was coloring by myself. But it did get the curious and creative hamsters on their respective wheels and here we are.

It’s May. And according to NAMI, the National Alliance to Mental Illness, it’s Mental Health Awareness Month.

During this show we’re gonna gleefully talk about the Curious | FIRST EDITION | Coloring Pages now available FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD EXCLUSIVELY on staycurious.org.

We also take a look at how coloring can offer therapeutic benefits to people of all ages. Whether you’re a kid or an adult, coloring has a lot of benefits for your mental health.

Many books tout the benefits of coloring — a thing that kids have known for ages. Coloring can help you channel your inner artist, de-stress and bring a sense of peace. But is there truly a benefit to coloring for adults? And what does this pastime do to our brains to bring about such pleasure and calm?

Grab your favorite crayons, markers print a few pages of our digital download, and color your self calm.
