To wrap up Mental Health Awareness this month, Madhat has decided to do a short but sweet post for you. In continuation of wellness and mindfulness, we have teamed up with Robyn Ridley. Robyn, an illustrator, has kindly designed some fantastic mindfulness colouring in sheets for you download for free! 🙂

Robyn’s artwork is all about female empowerment, looking after your mental health and creating artwork that are uplifting and resonate with her audience.

We have also provided some useful resources that cover mindfulness colouring in and why mindfulness colouring is beneficial for ones’ mental health and well-being.

Mindfulness colouring in is considered as “a calming relaxation tool with nostalgic undertone” and helps reduce levels of anxiety and depression.So, the cause of this is due to change in our brain wave and therefore, creates calmness.

Colouring and being creative takes you back to the old days and reminiscing on what we took as simple pleasures. Colouring in is a great way to escape from the digital realm and to focus on what is currently in the present.

Here are the 10 reasons why colouring in are helpful:

  1. Creative Meditation
  2. Relieve Stress
  3. Self-Soothe
  4. Reduce Social Anxiety
  5. Build Mental Strength
  6. Easy Way To Relax
  7. Encourage To Be In The Present
  8. No Winning Or Losing
  9. Thought Swapping
  10. Exercise The Mind
