Did you know that coloring can reduce stress and anxiety and improve your mood?
It induces the same state as meditation, allowing your mind to rest after a long day.
Our friends from the Beyond Words Pet Therapy Program provide a similar feeling for patients at FHN Memorial Hospital. A visit from one of our furry volunteers can provide comfort during long days in the hospital; reduce anxiety, fear, and stress; promote healing; lower blood pressure; and lift the spirits of everyone they meet.
We combined the best of both worlds into coloring pages of our own Therapy Dogs!
