Do you every have those moments where you can’t stop thinking about a problem or a situation? During those moments, it’s easy to go to a dark place, but you don’t have to! One technique to help you get out of your head and into your heart is to DO something — and that’s where NeighDoodles come in to help. When your head is talking your heart into a story that’s not working for you, coloring in a NeighDoodle can help you to shut it off.

The horses teach us that staying present in the moment and that getting connected to the world around us helps us see clearly when all the “talk” in our heads gets to be too much. Although being with the horses is the best solution for a restless mind, something like concentrating on coloring a complex pattern can make a great substitute.
