Try: Mindfulness colouring book

Are you looking for a way to de-stress, relax or take your mind off of things? Kids Help Phone’s mindfulness colouring book can help you do exactly that. Take a moment to focus your energy by doing a creative exercise that pairs an inspiring phrase with a background. This exercise can help you practice mindfulness.

Practicing mindfulness can help you notice what’s going on for you right now and create space to reflect on your thoughts and feelings without judging them. Colouring is a self-care activity that has been shown to reduce stress and encourage focusing on the present moment. The five phrases below can serve as important reminders to be kind and compassionate to yourself, especially when you’re experiencing difficult emotions:

  • Progress not perfection
  • It’s OK not to be OK
  • I am enough
  • Leave today behind when it’s over – tomorrow is a new day
  • Turn the kindness you give to others inwards

We all need a break to reflect sometimes. How do these phrases make you feel? Which phrase is the most appealing or meaningful to you? Which phrase would be most helpful to focus on today, this week or this month? When you need a reminder, visit this page and practice being kind and gentle with yourself.
