Color Me Calm
Have you joined the coloring craze?
I’ve always loved to color, and the great number of adult coloring books that are available today make it an easy option for anyone to grab a few moments for themselves to just clear the mind and declutter the spirit. I don’t need a study to tell me that taking some quiet time alone to color pushes that needed reset button in my mind.
If you find yourself depressed or filled with anxiety, you’ll undoubtedly benefit from the focused energy and peaceful time spent coloring. Breathing slows down. Thoughts slow down and begin to unfold in ways that help you decompress and find solutions that were previously wrapped in worries. We could all use a push to slow down and live in the moment.
If you haven’t tried coloring, you have very little to lose. This hobby doesn’t have to be expensive, and you can take it with you on your travels.
You can download a free Mini Coloring Book from Dover and register to win one of ten $15 Dover Gift Certificates. I’m not sponsored by Dover, but I do like their products and thought you might enjoy the freebie.
Coloring books have gone digital, too. I’ve tried some coloring phone apps, but they don’t compare to actually holding a pencil, crayon, or marker in my hand. However, some people love them!
Here are some other favorites I am using and love:
Classic Coloring Alice In Wonderland
Winter Wonderland to Color by Waycott
Pet Gallery Fur Babies Coloring Book by Patrick Sullivan
Johanna Basford Magical Jungle Coloring Book
Cats and Dogs in Style
