Stress seems like it runs rampant in everyone’s life today. Whether you are a busy mom running from activity to activity in between keeping up the house and feeding everyone or you are an important business person with hundreds of employees to manage and a company to run, the stress you feel is real. The problem is that these negative feelings we all experience are very bad for our health. Doctors tell us to find a way to de-stress, relax, unwind, and get some sleep, but they never have the magic answer as to how that should happen. While I don’t have the magic answer, per se, I do have a solution that works for many people – take it back to the basics and color!
Yes, I said color. You need to sit down with your favorite colored pencils (is there anything better than brand new box of beautiful colored pencils?) and color. The Animal Mandala Coloring Book contains numerous animals with intricate designs that will take your entire concentration. What does that mean for you? It means that fight with your mom, that important business decision you have to make, or the long list of chores waiting to be done will not be at the forefront of your mind. In fact, they will probably not be anywhere in your mind because you will be so immersed in the pure joy you get at releasing your inner creativity.
Honestly, when was the last time you picked up crayons or colored pencils except to help your 2-year old learn how to stay in the lines? Did you find yourself feeling drawn to the coloring book even then, despite the fact that it was Elmo that you were coloring? Why not let that inner creativity that wants to come out be released? Studies show that art helps to release stress and tension, so let it go and do something for yourself that is inexpensive yet incredibly rewarding. Not even a day at the spa or a day out with your friends can give you the exhilaration that coloring can provide.
If you claim you are not the artistic type, don’t worry because you do not have to draw. You just need to color amazing little designs in ways that you see fit. You get to choose the coloring medium and even the colors. Chances are once you start, you will not be able to stop because your heart and soul will be so glad that you are finally letting go of your pretenses.
