Color Your Mind: A Coloring Book Review

Color Your Mind: A Coloring Book for Those with Alzheimer’s and The People Who Love Them Coloring Book  Review + Giveaway

As we go through life, we accumulate a lifetime of memories and moments. Many of these are captured through photos and videos, but most of them exist in our minds.

Imagine as you get older, you begin to forget not only those precious memories but also things as simple as your own name and your loved ones names. While this progression can be quick, many times it is slow and painful for all parties involved.

While there currently is no way to stop this terrible progression from occurring, there are ways to stimulate memories. One new way is with a coloring book like Coloring Your Mind: A Coloring Book For Those With Alzheimer’s and The People Who Love Them by Maria Shriver/Blue Star Coloring.

Coloring Your Mind: A Coloring Book For Those With Alzheimer’s and The People Who Love Them by Maria Shriver/Blue Star Coloring is a coloring book with Alzheimer’s patients in mind.

Each page of this coloring book has its purpose, from teaching the care giver to stimulating the patients memory each concept is clear.

The first thing you have to know is that this not your typical coloring book – it is SO MUCH more. As you thumb through this book you see coloring pages, activity suggestions, and prompts for shared reflection and conversation.

This book is also unique in that it takes coloring and connects it with information such as  well-being, social connection, nutrition, exercise, moving the mind, and sleep.

This book does not lie flat, but it does not affect the function of the book. If you open the book wide and press down on the interior spine you will be able to crack the binding. Each page is perforated which helps the book lay flat, making for easy sight of both sides of the page. I would recommend placing a piece of paper under the page to be colored to avoid bleeding through to other pages. This also will assist in the prevention of creating impressions on the following pages from pressing down to hard.

From the moment I saw this book I saw the possibilities for those with memory issues. I believe that this book should be in memory care facilities across the world, and maybe recover some lost memories in the process.

If you want a book that can help you and the person you love, get a copy of Coloring Your Mind: A Coloring Book For Those With Alzheimer’s and The People Who Love Them by Maria Shriver/Blue Star Coloring and help spark a memorable conversation.

    I don’t know, I suffer from Fibromyalgia and migraines, and there is something called Fibro Fog and I’ve been forgetting lots lately. I deal with a lot of pain, so I’m sure that has a lot to do with it too. So, I need to come up with something so I don’t forget stuff. I do write down important dates and number and that helps.

    I have to write things down sometimes and I also play memory games on the computer.
