Art therapy — such as mindful coloring — has been found to work as a coping mechanism for certain types of mental health conditions, including PTSD, anxiety, and depression. For anyone, it’s a great way to ease stress, calm you down, and even unleash your creative side.
To get you started, we’ve created a mandala — a Hindu and Buddhist symbol typically of circular structure with geometric shapes that represents the universe. This beautiful floral design is great to lose yourself in after a difficult day or when you just want to indulge in something a bit more creative.
Simply print out the image below and start coloring. We suggest using colored pencils to achieve the best result, but you can use any medium to create something truly unique.
So keep calm and color on! We can’t wait to see your creations on Healthline!
