Win With Pilot Pop’lol Pens: Why Colouring In is Perfect for Mums

Feeling stressed out and the opposite of Zen? You might want to take a page out of your kids’ colouring book!

According to Debra Close, positive psychology coach at Flourishing Mothers, colouring is an easy way to boost your wellbeing, and is especially handy for mums.

“It’s a fun and relaxing activity that’s not too demanding, yet gives us a break from everyday stresses of life. You don’t have to leave the house or spend heaps of time or money. Even just doing five minutes of colouring before you go to bed can help you sleep and feel better!” she says.

Here, Debra lists some of the many benefits of colouring:

[mc_block_title custom_title=”1. It’s a Great Alternative to Meditation”]

If you’re struggling to meditate or find emptying your mind too difficult, colouring is a great alternative. It’s an active way of meditating, helping you focus your mind on the present moment, allowing you to take a mental break from your internal chatter.

[mc_block_title custom_title=”2. It Boosts Your Wellbeing”]

Being engrossed and fully absorbed in an activity like colouring can give us a sense of “flow” or being “in the zone”. This is where we get a sense of satisfaction and enjoyment. Being able to be fully engaged in activities of our choosing boosts our wellbeing.

[mc_block_title custom_title=”3. It Makes You Smarter”]

We use both the left and right brain when we colour in, which means it requires logical thinking as well as creativity. Colouring also enhances your focus and concentration, so overall it can boost your creativity and improve your problem solving and organisational skills.

[mc_block_title custom_title=”4. It Can Reduce Anxiety”]

Colouring has been shown to have stress-reducing benefits and can help reduce anxiety. You see, colouring calms the amygdala, the part of the brain related to the fear/stress response. Some people report sleeping better when colouring for even just five minutes before bedtime.

[mc_block_title custom_title=”5. It Can Help You Bond With Your Kids”]

Although the mindfulness benefits of colouring are best reaped when doing it on your own, doing it with your children is a great way of encouraging them to be creative too and to bond with them. As a bonus, colouring in has the same calming and de-stressing effects on children, so it is a perfect way to wind down together in the evening.

    The best thing about colouring in is the emptying of the mind. When deciding which colour should fill which shape next is the only thing on my mind, and all of the bills, stresses, anxieties and to-do’s which normally fill my head, fall to the side, my mind can finally have a mental rest – which is the only mental rest, second to playing sport, that I have been able to find.

When I have some quiet time on the train it’s so so SO good to be able to pick whatever page suits my mood and take my time colouring it in. Colouring in time at home with my 3 year old usually consists of him picking the page, telling me I can only use brown, and me rushing to finish it within 7 seconds before he flicks to the next page… *eye twitch*

    Bonding with my children. Being creative and have fun exploring ideas about colours with them. And also stimulate my brain at the same time

    It relaxes the mind and fuels the body with creativity. It’s also the perfect escape from reality into a magical land.

    I love that it relaxes me! Started when I tore the tendon attached to my elbow and it was soooo frustrating trying to do everything one handed. With an expected healing time of up to 12 months, I couldn’t even tear my hair out effectively, lol, but I could colour in and it saved my sanity!

    I was just going to say that it is very relaxing when I saw the same sentence in the comment below. But it’s true. You escape into another world and forget about all your problems and the problems of the world.

    Love creating colourful artworks while taking my mind off things. Colouring in helps me focus on what’s in front of me and forgetting everything else. I would love to win and have some me time relaxing and doing what I Iove, colouring in and making things colourful.

    Fine motor skill building and being able to create something else no else can do by using your imagination by changing the colours!

    I enjoy colouring with my youngest daughter as it helps calm her very active mind and builds her fine motor skills.

    I love the way colouring in carries me away to another world, it’s as though there’s nothing else around me. It’s so relaxing and calming and takes me back to when i was a kid with no worries or stress.

    I love that I don’t have to be perfect, no staying in the lines if I don’t want to, and I can clash the colours and go wild. It’s freeing for my soul and a way to bond with my children

    I’ve been struggling recently with some pretty severe health and mental health issues and I find that colouring in really helps me to focus and centre myself and keep calm when things are too stressful.

    Seeing the magic that appears on the page before my eyes. It relieves stress, takes my mind off worries & connects me with my children while doing something we enjoy together.
