As a school system professional, I never could have imagined that when I decided to become an occupational therapist, that I could potentially be put in a situation of risking my life helping students while working in the school system. With all of the recent school shootings and the murder of a Danvers High School teacher, which is a district that I personally worked in for 5 years, our world has become a stressful place. It’s no wonder, in my personal opinion that we hear about an alarming number of children who struggle with anxiety and fears, as a parent raising a child in our world, there are some legitimate reasons to be unnerved.
Since many people do not initially choose a path of medication for themselves or their children it’s become increasingly important to find creative outlets to help reduce stress and anxiety. One of those methods is through coloring mandalas. I’ve said it before, I frequently find peace and comfort in coloring along with my students. However, not until our school psychologist mentioned mandalas did I understand the concept that coloring various patterns inside these circular shapes could help children and adults seek peace, comfort and inspiration.
