#019 | Color Your Self Calm

420 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.

Intro Music: Midnight Sun by Cleveland’s own Mr.Gnome.

March 17. A day where many are VIP’s (Very Irish People).

So many celebrating and getting shamrocked. But do you know anything about this holy day? Or is it holiday?

Saint Patrick was a 5th-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Blue is his favorite color. Not green. Did you know we celebrate his death not his birth?

Also, why are there no female leprechauns?

Find your Guinness Gang, press your luck, and join us on this whiskey business of a podcast.

Sorry for no music this episode. We ran out of lucky charms this week.

Al Miller, R.A. is not a mad man. But he did trade his Dual Masters in Architecture & Business along with a decade of designing skyscrapers and hotels in San Diego, CA to travel to Santiago de Chile to teach English and Eco-tourism, only to fall in love with scuba-diving and the sailing life.

Season 1 is done and included secret bars, 70 days quarantined on SV Falkor and eating stingray. Set adrift this curious conversation with the Captain of Project Falkor as we chat about planning Season 2 of sailing towards the simple life.

What will 2021 include? Just a tiny trip across Atlantic from the Canary Islands to St. Lucia via Cape Verde, up the Windward Islands to Florida and the East Coast.
