Stop what you’re doing (because you’re probably at work) and order yourself an adult coloring book. If you’re anything like me, you grew up with thousands of coloring books and millions of crayons, markers and colored pencils. On a side note, I was a big fan of the twist up crayon invention and still love them to this day. Just know, you can still be in your 20’s or 30’s and own lots of Crayola.
Some studies have shown that coloring can cause DEstressing feelings. And at this age, you need all the destress activities you can find. With worrying about money, your job, not having enough time to work out and shower while still watching PLL or True Detective, sometimes it’s nice to sit back and grab your colored pencils to spend a few mindless minutes coloring in between the lines. Not to mention, it reminds you of your childhood and its happy memories.
As the first adult coloring book publisher, you can now buy this Paisley book (there are 2 editions!) and a Mandala themed book (uh, that’s my next purchase! Love mandalas.) from Skyhorse Publishing. Another awesome aspect of these coloring book is that they have perforated pages, so you can tear them out, frame them and have custom art for your walls! I highly suggest adding these books to your destress routine just after a long soak in the bath and/or massage.
Skyhorse Publishing provided the coloring book for this post, however all opinions (as always) are my own! Who doesn’t love coloring…?
