Hey there, wonderful human who’s always doing for others and never for yourself, you’re in need of some major self-love building and self-care practicing! I also know you’re incredibly busy and can never seem to find the time for it, which is why I’m really excited to be sharing this post with you today. My friend, I present to you the self-love affirmation coloring book – a little tool you can use to both build your self-love and practice some self-care.
Okay, I know what you’re thinking. A colouring book, Amanda? I’m a full-grown woman! But, hear me out.
Do you remember colouring as a child? Taking out your beautifully coloured pencil crayons and excitedly colouring in the pages in front of you, completely immersed in what you were doing, your thoughts bursting with creativity, and being totally present. Wasn’t it magical?
I know you were a child at the time with zero of the stressors you’re facing today, but there’s something real to that magic you were feeling then. It’s something you can still benefit from today.
Colouring and Mental Health
Adult colouring has grown in popularity over recent years, and individuals are turning to it more and more as a way to maintain their mental wellness. When it comes to our mental health, colouring comes with some really important benefits. It helps reduce our anxiety, relieve our stress, and relax our brain. Colouring also allows us to be more mindful and in the present moment, which helps improve our focus and reduce tension in our body.

I know you are someone who could always use a bit of stress relief and relaxation, so I encourage you to give colouring a try. It may be just what the doctor ordered. And, more importantly, you may really enjoy it.
I’ve added it to my self-care routine, and it’s become one of my favourite ways to unwind after a stressful day. A 20-minute colouring session often takes my 10 on my stress scale down to a 3 or 4 – a simple way to reduce my anxiety while also having a bit of fun.
Why self-love affirmations?
I’ve struggled with a lack of self-love ever since I could remember. I know you can relate, my fellow serial self-hater. Because of this, I’ve learned to incorporate self-love affirmations into my daily life. I’ve found them to be really helpful.
Each morning, I choose a positive affirmation (they’re often self-love related, but can be about anything you’re wanting to improve on) and read it aloud a few times. I do this daily. And I’ve noticed a real positive shift in my thinking patterns and self-esteem.
And I know I’m not alone, considering one of the most popular blog posts on Tulip and Sage is 20+ Positive Affirmations For Self-Love.
My love of affirmations and my goal of always being of some use to you is what led to the birth of this self-love affirmation coloring book.
The Self-Love Affirmation Coloring Book
I created this colouring book using the affirmations featured in the 20+ Positive Affirmations For Self-Love blog post. It’s a 30-page PDF book that can be downloaded as soon as purchased, printed then coloured. The affirmations can then be used in your daily practice – repeating one or a couple at a time daily to build your self-love. Or as your own artistic masterpieces transformed into wall art framed and hung up in your space.
I really hope you find this book as fun and as useful as I have ♡
