Printable Coloring Page-Stress Relief!!!

Despite the holidays being marketed as “the most wonderful time

of the year," many people still experience heightened feelings

of stress, sadness, and anxiousness during this time. These holiday

blues could be attributed to any of the following: 

  • Loneliness

  • End-of-year career stress

  • The financial strain that can come with gift-giving

  • Unrealistic holiday expectations

  • Family gatherings

—not to mention, the added layer of stress that has inherently

come with the COVID-19 pandemic.

Taking time to clear your mind, slow down, and temporarily

remove yourself from the hustle and bustle of the holidays

can be an effective way to manage stress and feelings

of anxiousness. How, you ask? Try coloring! 

Coloring is not just for children, and studies show

that coloring can actually relax your brain.

The simple act of coloring can temporarily take the attention

of yourself or the stressors in your life and help

you feel more relaxed. Print out the stress-relief coloring

page above or gift it to a loved one this season. This is

a great activity for a quick mental health break during

the day if you feel stress coming on or to unwind in the evening.
