Color for Calm

About the Contest

In celebration of National Coloring Day on August 2nd, Healthline would like to invite you to join in on our Color for Calm contest!

Research shows that drawing, coloring, and other fine motor activities help activate the parasympathetic nervous system and calm the fight or flight response, easing stress and unleashing your creativity.

We will be awarding first, second, and third prize winners with gift baskets full of calming products. You can see the gift basket content donated by our generous partners below.

We’ve carefully selected 12 judges who understand the importance of coloring for mental health and well-being. They’ll each select two finalists to be entered to win one of our grand prize baskets, as well as have their artwork featured on Healthline.

So keep calm and color on. We can’t wait to see your creations on Healthline!
