On this blog, we will discuss the positive effects of colouring on cards from our release - Love From Me Co Children Affirmation cards.
Coloring books are no longer just a child's pastime, it is for adults too! At this age, there is no age-limit to dabble with your creativity by using crayons or colouring pens.
We have noted that there is a positive impact to one’s mental health by way of expressing your creativity though art and colour, thus, we thought of integrating it with our beautiful deck of affirmation cards, this is truly helpful for kids and adults alike.
As you read and say your affirmation, try to focus and visualize on the words, allowing your mind to create a picture of what is going to happen when you say your statement. Let the visuals in your mind flow and wander, snap the best picture of it and create a still artwork, right at the back of our card.
When you are done with colouring, close your eyes and breathe in, open your eyes and take a look at what you have created in your artwork, this is what your inner mind is manifesting through your affirmations, if not, it is your mind’s suggestion of what it is you want.
Now, let us also talk about some of the benefits of colouring:
Colouring has the ability to relax your brain. When you create a stroke with your crayon or pencil, it focuses your mind to follow your gut instinct – to create a beautiful pattern and to pick a color to represent it. This generates mindfulness and quietness, which allows your mind to relax and create an atmosphere of creativity and reduces your anxiety level. Expressing ourselves through colouring can significantly lower levels of the stress hormone called cortisol in our bodies.
Coloring is not just for fun. It requires the two hemispheres of your brain to work together. When you try to fill in on the lines with your crayon or pencil, our logic tells us to stay inside those lines. Choosing the right colors generates a creative thought process in your brain.
Colouring allows you to drop everything and live in the moment, thus, generating focus.
Coloring is a relaxing and gadget-free activity during bedtime thus it won’t disrupt your level of melatonin.
You don’t have to be an expert artist to color! If you’re looking for a sign, an inspiration, or to unleash your creativity, our beautiful affirmation cards/decks are just about perfect.
