Drawing or coloring geometric shapes and patterns appears to help clear the mind, focus, and relax 🙂 I don’t know how exactly that works, I’m not a neuroscientist :), but I’ve tested that many times on myself and it always feels great to’ve had a doodling / coloring “session”. I’ve even noticed it feels like I’ve accomplished something significant…as if I’d completed an important work-related project, for example 🙂 This makes me want to share what I’ve learned with you.

Try coloring this bouquet and see if there’s any difference in how you feel before and after. I’d be curious to know if you notice any change –

So many books have been published on this, but it’s kind of cool to try it for yourself and see if it actually works 🙂

Have you tried meditative coloring?



    1. I agree it’s awesome to make your own zentangles and color’m too! 🙂 I have a collection of coloring books by different artists anyway and bounce from one to another coloring in…depending on which one inspires me more in a given moment…some are energizing, some are exhausting, some are complex, some are quick and easy 🙂
