We all get sad sometimes. Whether it’s because of a sad movie, the end of a relationship, or the passing of a loved one, we have all dealt with it at some point. The most important thing when we are in a state of sadness becomes how to get out of it so that we can go back to being happy and enjoying life as quickly as possible. Here at Creatively Calm we believe that one of the best ways to get over sadness is through color therapy and more specifically through flower coloring pages.
What Is Color Therapy?
Believe it or not even if this is the first time you are hearing about color therapy you have probably already experienced its powers. A very common example of the power of colors and how they can affect us is a disorder called "Seasonal Affective Disorder" or SAD for short. If you have ever felt sad when the winter months hit then you have experienced this disorder and the power that the muted colors that come with those months can have over us.
The same way that the colors, or lack thereof, during the winter months can make us feel sad, some colors can actually make us feel happy, calm and relaxed, or angry and energized. The color blue for example can induce a sense of calmness and relaxation which is why many hospitals tend to have some form of blue in their buildings. The color yellow on the other hand can make us feel happy and upbeat while red can raise levels of aggression and anger. Which ever color you look at, it is easy to see how much power they can have over our mood.
Why Do Flower Coloring Pages Help?
Flowers are nature’s paint palette. They come in all different shades, sizes, and shapes and can be a true wonder to look at. For those reasons flower coloring pages are an amazing tool for your color therapy arsenal. Beyond the power that each individual color can hold, the mixing of colors can also have huge effects. Artists have known about this for years and have used these methods to cause desired emotions from the viewers. By mixing different bright primary colors you can stimulate feelings of happiness and positivity.
Coloring flowers is an easy way to create this sort of multi-color effect. While the stems of flowers can oftentimes be the same color, the bulbs rarely are the same from flower to flower. By allowing your imagination to run free and color flower coloring pages in many different shades you can create this stimulating effect on yourself and begin to fight back you feelings of sadness.
