Coloring Pages: Time to Unwind
For the longest time, the popularity of adult coloring books was a mystery to me. But one day I realized, when you make thousands of decisions every single day — from which socks or shirt to wear, to which candidate you should hire or where to put your limited budget — your brain gets a little tired. A simple activity like coloring within the lines doesn’t require any deep thought or planning. It’s more of a meditative exercise, with the added benefit of creating something tangible.
Doesn’t that make coloring the perfect activity to do over winter break? It’s both relaxing and nostalgic, which makes it fit in wonderfully with the holiday season when it’s time to unwind, be around friends and family, sip cocoa and appreciate what really matters in life.
So, grab your colored pencils or crayons, print out one of the eight illustrations below, and keep the spirit of the holidays going.
