Stress Relief

Stress is a natural part of daily life in the modern world. From the trials and tribulations of the world at large, the idiot that cuts into line at the store, to the moron that cuts you up at the intersection. There is no avoiding it. It pervades everything we do.

So what do we do about it? How do we deal with this feeling that can gnaw at us until it drives us crazy?

There are a multitude of accepted techniques for dealing with stress such as a beer after work, chain smoking, relaxing with your other half, exercise, meditation, yoga. The list is endless. But what works for one, may not work for another.

How do you deal with the rigours of life, the stresses that get to you?

One newly accepted method is that of adult coloring. Not the coloring we all did as kids, or continue to do with our own kids, but a different kind of coloring. Adult coloring. Pictures and patterns that are more challenging for the adult. Those that stretch us, and in my case, often the ability to see without a magnification aid.

What do they do? How do they help?

Adult coloring books stretch and challenge our minds and abilities. They allow us to perform a physical task, whilst our subconscious minds to wander, whilst our conscious minds work on color selection, patterns, symmetry, and yes, staying inside the lines too. Always important whatever your age.

So, how about you tell me how you deal with the stress in your life, and maybe give adult coloring a try.

Here is a good place to start. I will even make things easy for you and provide links for whether you are in the US or the UK. You cannot ask for more than that.

Give it a go.

Adult Coloring Books

No! Not Adult in ‘that’ way. But a whole lot of fun all the same.

Description

Coloring is not just for kids. It has been proven to be an excellent way for adults to destress, create mindfulness and slow down from daily life, all while enjoying an activity that you can truly make your own.

There is no right or wrong way to color in the images in this book, and you are free to choose the tools you wish to work with. Markers, paint, colored pencils, pens – the choices are unlimited.

Sit back and unwind and let your stress melt away while you spread color across the page. All pages are single sided to avoid bleed through.

Relax and enjoy the books in this calming series
