Self-Care and Creativity
Last updated: September 2021
Sickle cell can cause feelings of worry and leave you overwhelmed. Finding ways to cope with the emotions and experiences that come with sickle cell can be difficult.
Everyone's self-care practices differ, but taking time for yourself is important.
Coloring as a form of self-care
Coloring pages are a form of self-care for many people. This relaxing and rejuvenating activity is a good way to take a break from screens and create something beautiful.
Check out our coloring pages below, created specifically to celebrate and support sickle cell warriors!
These coloring pages combine 2 self-care practices: coloring and positive affirmations. Coloring is a great way to reduce stress and improve your mood. This simple distraction can help reduce "over-thinking," spark creativity, and improve focus. Positive affirmations are also a great way to boost our moods.
