As we are a Mentally Healthy School we are partnering with Act Belong Commit to promote Mindful May.
To celebrate Mindful May, we want you to get colouring! Download and colour in one of the mindful colouring templates here and upload your final version by the end of this month.
Colouring can be an enjoyable alternative to meditation or mindfulness, and can be used as a way to reduce feelings of anxiety. In particular, colouring-in a mandala (a round shape) has been found to be the most beneficial form of colouring in for reducing anxiety.
Colouring is also good for us because it uses the part of our brain responsible for improving concentration, motor skills, problem solving and organisational skills. This is particularly true if you are colouring detailed pictures, with complex colour schemes and trying to make your picture look aesthetically pleasing.
The competition opens on 1 May and ends on 31 May 2020, T&C's apply.
