It’s Mental Health Awareness Month! We are sharing photos in social media of #everydaymentalhealth activities we can do to enhance our mental health.
Color. Do you remember coloring as a kid? What memories come to mind? Maybe you felt joy, had fun and felt creative as a kid. But coloring is not just for kids anymore (it never has). Emerging research on the impact of adults coloring points to a state of relaxation almost meditation like and an opportunity for the brain to relax. Coloring allows people the chance to work on a detailed and focused activity. When we provide our mind opportunities like these, it can help stay in the present moment more and there is less time for your mind to spend time ruminating or worrying about the future. So why not give this a try? In the ever demanding world we live in, sometimes we just need to take a break and why not do it while igniting your creativity!
