I used to think chakras sounded really ridiculous and woo. Even in Yoga Teacher Training, I was kind of skeptical about the whole chakra thing. Since then, I’ve become more interested in energy medicine and learning about chakras.
In particular, I’ve been listening to the book Unblocked read by the author. Unblocked deals with healing the root, sacral, solar plexus, and heart chakras and clearing blocks that can leave you feeling stuck and unfulfilled. The book focuses, in particular, on clearing guilt and shame picked up during childhood. The tapping scripts resonate deeply with me and have definitely helped me start to shift unhelpful, limiting beliefs. If you’ve been feeling stuck, or like you have unhelpful beliefs from your childhood, check out Unblocked.

The best coloring tools for adults
If you’re coloring for meditation and relaxation, your paper and coloring tools can make or break the experience.
For professional-feeling coloring pages that are relaxing to color, skip whatever cheap paper is in the office copy machine. Thicker, smoother paper cost just a tiny bit more, but makes your experience so much more enjoyable.
I use and recommend HP 32# paper for coloring pages. It’s thicker and brighter than “regular” copy paper.” It’s also acid free, which means your pages won’t yellow over time if you decide to keep them. The paper is very smooth, which means pencils and crayons glide and color easily on it.
This HP 24# paper is a couple of dollars less than the 32# option. It is also nicer than standard paper and very bright white, so it’s another solid choice. (I worked at a copy center after college and am kind of a paper nerd.)

Gel pens are really fun for coloring. They’re my husband’s favorite coloring tool. Gel pens are great for blending colors. If you don’t want to use all your ink coloring the whole page, you can just add sparkly accents with your gel pens. See this post for the best gel pens for coloring, including a budget pick that actually works. The short version is that the pens shown below are the best overall and best budget pick:
Although Copic markers are amazing, my favorite markers for coloring are inexpensive Crayola Supertips. They’re affordable, easy to find, and fun for adults and children. They have a fine tip for details, but can also be used on the nib’s side for broader areas of coloring. The caps don’t always look exactly like the actual ink color (a common problem with markers), so you may want to do test swatches. Some of my Supertips markers are shown in the photo below.
Prismacolors are, in my opinion, the best colored pencils for coloring. Even the “student” lines of Prismacolor colored pencils are softer and creamier than brands like Crayola. Prismacolors color easily and are great for blending. My husband can do really amazing things with blending our Prismacolor pencils.
- Soft, thick cores are perfect for shading and shadows
- Ultra-smooth, even color laydown
- Lightfast, richly saturated pigments
