Self-Care Idea: Coloring

Practicing self-care requires effort. If you’re someone who rarely attempts self-care, it will be harder for you to come up with ideas. Never fear, we have countless ideas for you! The recent craze of adult coloring books has many adults rekindling and connecting with their inner child. Coloring is quite relaxing and also inexpensive. You can purchase an adult coloring book at your local Target or Walmart for under $10. Investing in some new coloring pencils or markers won’t cost you too much either.

You can color while you watch TV or listen to relaxing music. You don’t have to finish your entire picture in one setting, in fact taking your time will likely keep you excited to continue this self-care practice. Benefits of coloring include alleviate stress, reduce anxiety, improve your mood, provides a feeling of accomplishment, brings back youthful feeling and memories, improves hand-eye coordination, and helps maintain motor function.
