A blog I read posted an entry about how doodling is good for the brain and how mandalas–drawing them or coloring them–are used as a form of art therapy ( even by Carl Jung, no less).

Much like the author of the original post, I went down the internet rabbit hole and learned about the history of mandalas and benefits of drawing or coloring them. Plus, I learned that the internet has whole sites dedicated to coloring pages, and that there are lots of mandala drawings out there to download and color! I still don’t have a knitting project for the evenings; maybe I’ll print out some mandalas and get out my colored pencils instead.
