Why Join:

• The winning designs will be transformed into pendants and exclusively available in the KAQ Online Store. All proceeds will benefit the programs as services at Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice.

• Coloring has the ability to relax the fear center of your brain. It induces the same state as meditating by reducing the thoughts of a restless mind. This generates mindfulness and quietness, which allows your mind to get some rest.

• Coloring goes beyond being a fun activity for relaxation. It requires the two hemispheres of the brain to communicate. While logic helps us stay inside the lines, choosing colors generates a creative thought process.

• Coloring requires you to focus, but not so much that it’s stressful. It allows you to put everything else aside and live in the moment, generating focus.
