Colour Therapy is an entirely non-invasive holistic treatment that aims to bring balance to the energy of our body. It is often used as a complementary therapy alongside other treatments and is a popular go-to practice for people suffering from depression, stress, and seasonal affective disorder.
How is coloring therapeutic?
Coloring can be therapeutic in many ways. Have you ever seen someone on a beach or in a field just painting in the midst of nature? Imagine how therapeutic that is. And even if you might not be able to make it to the beach or have a field nearby, coloring right from home or work can really help alleviate any stressors happening in life right now (just the same as actually being there). Concentrating on the coloring aspect and the movement of your hand, body, and mind can really help replace any negative thoughts with more positive and neutral ones. They can also be used to create a sense of routine and less of an attachment to technology in the normal day to day. What’s more is that many people, especially adults, as they get older aren’t as comfortable with expressive forms of art and tend to lose their more creative sides that they may have had as children.
Coloring is a great way to bring this back while simultaneously benefiting your health in numerous ways. However, it’s important not to push or be too hard on yourself, so coloring outside of the lines is necessary! Creativity is a muscle that needs to be exercised and the more you desire to exercise it, the stronger it gets. Happy coloring! Download The Qi flower coloring PDF HERE
