According to this article on Expand Your Consciousness, psychologists say coloring is the best alternative to meditation.
Seriously? The best alternative? Now that’s something! I know that I enjoy coloring. It relaxes me and calms my mind. And you don’t have to spend lots of money on those fancy coloring books as there are plenty of free coloring pages out there, and some are specifically for adults.
Special thanks to Ashley Wilcox for this colored mandala which came from the book Mandala Meditation by Sterling Publishing Company.
