Fill your blank page with any color or combination of colors in any way you want. You could scribble, or make a pattern, or anything else you can think of. There is no way to do this wrong. 

Allow your thoughts, worries, and emotions to rest while you do this. You're allowed to completely relax and turn off your thinking mind while you focus on the color you're putting down. Enjoy the peacefulness of this quiet, simple action.

 

You might want to pay attention to what it feels like in your physical body while you color. Or you might notice the sounds that your coloring makes. Find some aspect of this experience to focus on and enjoy that aspect.
