COVID-19 Color for Calm

“The once-niche hobby has now grown into a full-on trend, with everyone from researchers at Johns Hopkins University to the editors of Yoga Journal suggesting coloring as an alternative to meditation.” ~ Psychology Today

Coloring books specifically aimed at adults became hugely popular a few years ago. Enthusiasts say coloring helps them stay focused, reduces their anxiety, and brings a new sort of mindfulness to their lives.

While businesses are starting to reopen in the wake of COVID-19, anxiety has risen for even the most optimist among us. Feelings of uncertainty have wreaked havoc on mental health, for those working remotely while juggling additional responsibilities at home, those isolated alone, and especially those unable to work or whose jobs have been lost. And the pandemic is far from over.

Now is the perfect time to use structured coloring as a creative way to mindfully disconnect from feelings of overwhelm and calm negative emotions. The Center for Workplace Mental Health encourages people to, “Engage in activities that benefit your well-being, bring you joy and distract you from existing challenges.”
