For my birthday this year I bought myself a coloring book and box of 36 colored pencils. I decided it was time to carve out part of the day to relax, enjoy coloring and turning my brain off.
I get so caught up in emails, social media, and every other thing that causes my computer to ding on a daily basis. I wanted to find a way to relax and just be.
The Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book is my first foray into taking time to color and I have to tell you I love it. I turned on Amazon prime radio and listened to Michael Buble croon while enjoying my favorite Starbucks Peach Green Tea Lemonade. I closed out every screen on my computer and just colored!
30 minutes later I looked up with a smile and just signed in contentment. Such a simple pleasure that made me relax and just be.
I have decided that coloring needs to happen more often and I am going to be adding it to my weekly routine. I need to find a way to just relax and not stress about things. Right now coloring has become my go to stress reliever. It feels so good to just color. It doesn’t matter if I stay in the lines, what color I chose or how I make the pic look it is just for me.
If you have been seeing the adult coloring books at the store and wondering if they are worth it I am here to tell you YES they are. Buy yourself a treat and spend some time coloring. It feels so dang good!
