Control your stress

The practice of coloring Dragons can induce you to a state of deep relaxation. If you find yourself stressed and exhausted, there is no better medicine than spending an hour coloring a Dragon.

The rhythmic movement of the coloring will calm your nervous system and calm your agitated mind.

Start looking for a place where you can be alone and free from interruptions. If you have already created a sacred space to color the Dragons much better. If not, introduce an element that symbolizes the peace and satisfaction you crave, such as a symbol taken from nature.

Choose the Dragon that appears below and decide what materials you want to use to color it.

Before you start coloring, close your eyes and take a few minutes to breathe deeply, directing the air towards your abdomen. Most of us breathe shallowly, and this habit is exacerbated when we are tense and worried. By breathing by directing the air towards the abdomen, you can lower the diaphragm further, so that the lower part of the lungs will fill with air as it should. A good supply of oxygen to your cells and your brain can do wonders to relieve stress and anxiety. Relax the parts of your body that are tense, such as the neck and jaw.

When you're ready, open your eyes. Start coloring the Dragon, in any way that suits you. Choose the colors that give you good feelings and that inspire calm and serenity.

When you've finished coloring your Dragon, check out the meaning of the colors to get to know yourself a little better. Then write on a sheet of paper a list of ten ways you can bring more relaxation into your life. Choose three suggestions from this list.
