Coloring for grownups isn't new, but its popularity has been on the rise, and for good reason. Coloring stimulates the right side of the brain – where your creativity, intuition and visualization lies. Stress levels go down and feelings of peace and happiness increase.

Grabbing pencils, crayons or markers and coloring is also a great way to detach from the many screens that have taken over our lives – from televisions, to computers to smart phones. Going “old school” and playing with colored pencils or markers and paper is a great escape for all ages.

Coloring is one way to shift the brain's attention and focus. This is a perfect example of pivoting. Even if someone can't change their physical circumstances, they can pivot their perspective, or the way they look at the situation. The Pivot to Happy movement helps people pivot their perspective to create a happier life through writing, speaking, social media and a growing array of products. Sometimes the key to happiness is in small, deliberate pivots of action or attitude and that is what we are all about. Pivot to Happy shares skills and techniques to help people PIVOT (from fear, sadness, anxiety, anger, etc) TO HAPPY. The more a person consciously practices, the faster they will recover from life's setbacks.
