A few weeks ago we grabbed a fistful of colored pencils, turned on a podcast, started coloring, and totally zoned (and zenned) out. We weren’t sitting cross-legged or focusing on our breathing, but it sure felt a lot like meditating

Adult coloring books are a big trend right now, and we get it: It’s soothing, relaxing, and mindful (or mindless). Coloring helps spark your inner creativity and the end result is art. Even if you’re totally type A, don’t worry about sticking inside the lines. There are no grades or judgment here. 

For our five-day coloring challenge, the goal is to finish one page per day to help you find zen (check out a couple samples below). Click the button to download the full book, and then print out the pages and let the coloring begin! Share your artwork using #colormegreatist, and don't forget to check back next month for a brand new challenge.

Here's a sneak peek of what you can expect:
