Have you heard about adult coloring? It’s the latest hobby for grownups. I discovered coloring when looking for a way to relax before bedtime. My mind tends to race, keeping me from sleeping. After reading that adult coloring quiets the mind, I gave it a try and my sleep quality improved.
When I color, my mind doesn’t wander to that ever-growing to-do list. The simple act of applying color to paper requires that I be in the moment. And have I mentioned how coloring has ignited my creativity? I can’t draw a straight line, but when I finish a coloring page, I feel like an artist. And that feeling comes with a rush of new ideas for writing, decorating the house, how the garden will look this summer and more.
