Coloring Pages to Reduce Anxiety

Coloring is one of those activities that has become a lost art that some people think is only for children. Well, it's not. Coloring can relax you by making you focus on one thing only (one that is not a life issue), breathe normally, and let your imagination soar. All of these aspects will create a calm and relaxing environment, and in the end, you will have a beautiful piece of art you created from your personal struggles and strengths; or just for fun! 

Here are some articles about coloring and mindfulness:
