I’m a few years late to the party, but I finally got around to trying Mindfulness Coloring for Adults, or as I like to call it, coloring. I have to sing its praises.
I was working on the reindeer’s ears when my Violet-Rouge Crayola snapped in half. Three more crayons met the same demise (RIP Yellow-Green, Bluetiful, and Yellow). This was when I knew the Mindfulness Coloring for Adults was starting to work its magic.
After a breath, and then another breath, I relaxed my hand (and subsequently my arm, and subsequently my whole body) enough to get through the whole reindeer without breaking another crayon.
I have now done some online research and, from what I understand, breaking crayons is not the point – nor should it be part of the exercise. I may have done this wrong. I recommend coloring in any case.
