Pi As A Stress Reliever
As much as we’ve talked about gorging ourselves on desserts, we’re not talking about eating our feelings this time. Lots of math enthusiasts use March 14th to take a deep breath and put colored pencil to paper in pi-themed coloring books featuring pages full of π’s digits and intricately designed circles.
Coloring isn’t just for kids developing their fine motor skills and budding sense of creativity, It’s akin to meditation in the way it tells our amygdala (the fear center of the brain) to quiet down and get some rest, leading to stress relief. So, if you want a soothing, sugar-free way to worship π while indulging in a little self-care, grab yourself pi coloring book or print a free page from Pinterest.
