A few years back, I read an article on Yahoo about 100 ways to boost your mood. I cannot seem to find it now. However, I only remember the number one suggestion. Perhaps because it wasn’t what I thought would top such a list geared toward adults. But mostly because of its simplicity. Coloring! Suggested media: crayons. And I have to admit, there is something very relaxing about coloring, whether in a goofy cartoon book with the kids or just on a blank sheet of paper alone.
My kids all love coloring. Baby loves eating crayons still, but I have confidence he’ll outgrow that soon.
So for happiness, grab a kid, box of Crayolas, some paper, and get started!
