Color Your Way to a Better New Year

Coloring to Pay Off Debt

With New Year’s Day fast approaching, now is the perfect time to start thinking about your goals for 2016.  Do you want to lose weight? Pay off debt? Save money for your dream vacation? Will this be the year you finally make it through the “to-read” pile of books on your nightstand? Whatever your goal, your obsession with adult coloring books can help!

Find a page with a pretty pattern to fill in, display it in a prominent location, and then color in one section every time you make progress towards your goal — such as saving $25 towards your vacation or losing 1 pound. It might feel silly at first, but having a visual representation of your goal can be a helpful motivational tool.
