Chronic Love Club and Color Therapy: Social Coloring and Raising Awareness
Updated: Dec 2, 2018
So, what is Color Therapy? It’s an app for every day people, from all walks of life, to de-stress and unwind through a social coloring experience. A large majority of our app’s users have, or support someone who has, a chronic illness and that is why we are so excited to collaborate with Chronic Love Club to create exclusive coloring templates – just in time for Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Week to boot!
Our in-app community benefits from friendly, unconditional support when voicing their worries, anxieties, or mental health battles, all while creating beautiful artworks to share with the world. Many of our users become close friends, support one another’s personal growth and creative developments, and have become a type of long-distance family.
Mindfulness art therapy can significantly decrease the symptoms of emotional distress (1), and has also been discovered to reduce signs of depression and anxiety (2). So why not download the app and give social coloring a go? Don’t worry, it’s free! Visit the color therapy app to find it on the app store.
There is even a specific coloring challenge - #ChronicLoveClubXct - so whether you’re joining in, or just having a look, be sure to check out the amazing creations by following this hashtag on social media.
We can’t wait to see what you create and share with the world. Happy coloring!
