Download: Colouring sheet – Recipe for rest


Aaaaaaand breathe out. It’s time to build a recipe for rest.

It’s so hard to rest sometimes, isn’t it? We become caught up in the hustle and bustle of life. Before we know it, it’s an hour past our bedtime and we still haven’t even sat down. Many of us struggle to block out time for rest. Then, when we do manage to create a little bit of restful time, it can be hard to know what to do with it.

Here, we have lots of different restful ideas. Colour in the graphics and build your very own recipe for rest. Even better; colouring is often restful in itself, so it’s a double win!

What do people say about our work?

I’m a mum, a carer and a grandma and my days are filled with caring for everyone else but myself. You gave me permission to admit to my tiredness and to allow myself the indulgence of rest and relaxation. Thank you so very much. I hope one day that someone will sprinkle a little magic your way too. Have a great day.

Not only can you sign up for monthly buddy boxes, but there are also lots of free resources regarding self care, depression, anxiety and emotional support (just to name a few). Plus they send out emails that are filled with kind words and motivate you on those tough and emotional days. I often save mine so that I can go back to them when I need to. It’s amazing how much a few kind words can boost your mood and get you through the rest of the day. Thank you! 

It’s not about what once was. It IS about taking the time to rest, to get back to the self, to love and nourish that self, and then to look to the next steps FORWARD. Again, THANK YOU!

It’s important that these resources are as accessible as possible to as many as possible. They’re used in therapy sessions, within schools, in libraries, in NHS teams and within inpatient services. Thousands of people say that they’re incredibly helpful.

If you’re in a place where you’re able to, we’d appreciate any contribution whatsoever for using this (and any other) resource to help support the work we do to helping those affected by depression, including our free-to-schools education programme: The Blurt Peer Project.
