Among the things that accomplished people have in common is their daily routines. We hear a lot about morning routines to set the intentions for our day. But I think it is equally important to end your day with a routine as well.
One of the things I incorporated into my evening routine is coloring. I loved coloring as a child. From time to time as an adult, I would get an urge to color and would buy a coloring book and crayons.
Now coloring as an adult is a "thing" and there are now coloring books just for us grown folks (smile).
Coloring has some benefits:
- The repetitive motion of coloring calms your mind
- Negative feelings can be replaced with positive ones
- Can help minimize negative behavior caused by certain triggers
While coloring does not and should not replace therapy (something I highly recommend), it can be a strategic component in your arsenal of coping mechanisms.
So, I created a coloring book just for us! Not only does it have some similar images you've seen before, I included one of my signature messages in the sheets!
Print and bind the pages together (at Kinko's, Office Depot, Staples, etc.) to have your own coloring book!
