Mindfulness activities involve paying full attention to something - slowing down to really notice what you're doing. You're focusing in a relaxed, easy way.
 
Mindfulness colouring is a simple, and creative way, to practice mindfulness at home – and excitingly, there are lots of fabulous colouring resources available online at the moment!
 

To highlight just a few:

  • Adobe are collaborating with a range of artists and illustrators to release a weekly printable colouring book, and themes include animals, dreams and gratitude. You can access them here.

 
  • Other companies are also releasing free templates online that you can print at home. These range from simple to advanced designs, with templates suitable for young and old. 
 

In preparation for this activity you will need to:

  • Find something to colour
    • This may be digital online, something you print (see suggestions above) or a colouring book you already have
  • Set up a clear, uncluttered space
  • Bring along your preferred colouring materials - pencils, pens, markers etc .
Take the time to slow down, be mindful and enjoy the process!
