Color Your World
"Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up." - Pablo Picasso
We believe that making wine is also like making art. It's about the application of science and technique, but also involves an element of play, particularly when it comes to blending. You have to take your time to really get to know the grapes and the resulting wine, finding harmony as you layer the flavors. We're not painters, but we imagine this is what it's like for the artist when they are trying to find the perfect color.
In order to get back in touch with our sense of play, we're playing old school games like Uno and Battleship, keeping our brains sharp with word puzzles, and scribbling in some coloring books. It turns out that coloring has actual health benefits, too!
- When you sit and color, it relaxes the amygdala, helping to reduce stress and anxiety. In the time of COVID-19, participating in activities that reduce stress and anxiety makes your immune system more resilient and makes you a happier person too.
- Coloring before bedtime is a great tech-free ritual that helps improve the quality of your sleep. Many of us like to binge our favorite shows right before bed, or, even worse, we scroll on our phone until we can't keep our eyes open any longer. Studies show that too much screen time before bed ruins your ability to get a deep, restful sleep.
- You can improve your focus. Coloring requires concentration, but not too much. It's kind of like meditation: you are present but just breathing through the process. As many of us continue to work from home, strengthening our focus can help us have a more productive day and reduce distraction.
Who knew that something so simple could be so helpful? We decided to make a little something for you to download and print for the next time you take a little break. We made a Ruby Hill themed crossword puzzle and a coloring sheet for you. Grab a glass of wine, relax, and let your inner-child come out and play!
