Looking for fun activities to keep you entertained over the festive period? Why not practice a little mindfullness and take up colouring?
Did you know, colouring has the ability to relax the ‘fear centre’ of your brain, the amygdala? It induces the same state as meditating by reducing the thoughts of a restless mind. This generates mindfulness and inaudibility, which allows your mind to relax after a busy day.
Five reasons to take up colouring:
- Better focus
- Improve sleep
- Reduce stress and anxiety
- Aid relaxation
- Enhance nostalgia
We have created a selection of Stonyhurst colouring pages, available to download below. Why not gather as a family and get creative using watercolours, crayons or pencils – we can’t wait to see your beautiful designs! Don't let the children have all the fun, we hope to see our OS and wider Stonyhurst community getting involved too!
Use the hashtag #StonyhurstSpirit to share your creations with us and the wider Stonyhurst community.
