Color Me Brite: Another holistic modality for dealing with stress. De-stress with coloring.
Sharpen your colored pencils and dig out your favorite markers because staying inside the lines isn't just for kids. Coloring gives people a creative outlet as well as a low-stress concentration and exertion with bright colors that can lower anxiety. Coloring also lets the brain free up thoughts to think about people value in life and divert energy into something constructive. Studies show coloring can have a calming effect on the mind and helps promote overall wellness. A study in the journal Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association found that just 30 minutes of an artistic activity, like coloring, is enough to reduce anxiety levels.
