Roozle, The Little Girl Who Draws Herself to Sleep

How do you get a 4-year old to sleep? With great difficulty.

But Riley, the daughter of Casey Carey-Brown of of Boston, found a way. Her little girl, who goes by the nickname "Roozle," likes to color herself to sleep. Give her some paper, crayons, and markers, and she'll quietly doodle and fill in coloring pages until she falls asleep, sometimes with the drawing instruments still in her hands. Carey-Brown felt inspired to capture these precious moments. She explained to the Huffington Post:

Just as making paper pictures has become a bedtime habit for Roozle, capturing the scenes on camera has become one for mom.

"I've always gone in to check on her before I go to bed, but these days with a very active 4-year-old, I find that capturing a moment of sleeping Roozle helps me as a parent too," Carey-Brown said. "Time slows down, just for a moment, in the midst of all the chaos."

While super cute, Roozle's response to coloring before bed is not surprising as it is a form of meditation with an external focus. I have read the suggestion of coloring being given many times for people with anxiety and depression to assist them in meditation and mindfulness.
