Think that coloring books, crayons and colored pencils are just for kids?  Not anymore! Rediscover how and why this once childhood pastime can support well-being and create a meditative state while stimulating both sides of the brain - even in adulthood! 

Interested in organizing a Color Me Calm session in your department? Being Well at Yale will provide you with colored pencils and coloring sheets, ranging from intricate mandalas, wild animals, ocean life, and festive decorations.  All you need to do is pick up the supplies, find the space and promote it! 

At the end of the session, participants head back to work feeling refreshed and with a beautiful masterpiece to brighten up their space. Artistic ability and coloring inside the lines not required!
