It’s Brain Awareness Week, an occasion observed to emphasize the benefits and progress of research related to the mind. One practice gaining momentum as a tool for cognitive calm and emotional expression is adult coloring. The hobby earns high marks for reducing stress through repetitive, rhythmic motions that replicate a meditative state.
Since we know everyone could stand to benefit from a little more mindfulness, we invite you to sharpen your colored pencils, grab the big box of crayons and settle in for some gentle “you time”, courtesy of these intricate pages. Print your favorites, find a quiet place and uncover a healthy dose of zen.
