Have you tried Mandala colouring? It’s a really creative and relaxing way to unplug from your busy life for a while.
What do you need?
All you need is a mandala, and crayons, pencils, chalks, pastels, paint, or fine-liners in a variety of colours, and some time to yourself.
How do you do this?
There is no right or wrong way to colour a mandala, you can colour at your own pace, and you don’t have to follow any rules. Don’t think about your choice of colour too much and don’t worry about matching colours. Let your instincts guide you.
Why are mandalas so effective as a tool to unplug?
First of all, colouring is fun and relaxing. It’s an enjoyable way to express your creativity, and, it’s an activity anyone can do, regardless of age. Coloring also lets the child in you come out to play for a while. Coloring a mandala combines the benefits of meditation and art therapy. People who colour mandalas often experience a deep sense of calm and well-being. It’s a simple tool that doesn’t require any expertise, but it can be remarkably soothing and nourishing. Mandalas not only focus your attention but allow you to express your creative side, which many of us don’t get a chance to do in our daily lives.
