Colouring for Mindfulness has become more popular recently and it can relax you in the following ways:

  • Colouring is simple. When your thoughts are focused on a simple activity you’re not disturbed by them and your brain can relax.
  • It’s your creation – colouring is a low-stakes activity and is entirely within your control – colour however you like. Use unrealistic colours, colour outside the lines; your piece can turn out however you choose and this makes it relaxing.

Please find below 4 designs; 2 more complicated and 2 fun ones for kids (I am partial to the dinosaurs myself!) Relax and enjoy and don’t forget to share your finished work with us.
