What used to be known as a simple , fun activity for kids now is a tool for practicing good mental health . Coloring has increased in popularity recently , especially for adults .
Coloring is a healthy way to relieve stress . It calms the brain and helps your body relax . This can improve sleep and fatigue while decreasing body aches , heart rate , respiration , and feelings of depression and anxiety .
Although coloring isn ’ t the ultimate cure for stress and anxiety , sitting down for a long coloring session holds great value . As you color , pay attention to your breathing rhythm , ensuring steady , full breaths from your diaphragm , and tune into your heart rate periodically if you can .

PEPPERBERRY COLORING MURALS Who knew coloring on the walls would be so much fun ?? The Pepperberry Suites is doing just that on giant coloring murals hanging on the walls . A box of coloring tools wait patiently for a resident or staff member to add a little color to a section of the mural when they have a spare moment . It might be to color in a petal or leaf , or as much as you ’ d like . This community coloring project allows us the opportunity to relieve a little stress with coloring therapy as well as creating a beautiful work of art with many styles and ideas throughout the mural . If you are at the Pepperberry Suites , feel free to add your artistic talent or your brilliant color scheme to our art piece ! Watch for our progress and finished project !
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ! Wishing you another year full of blessings !
