Coloring Books For Adults: Color Me Some Relaxation!

adult-coloring-books-donna-frasca

You’ve all heard about these coloring books by now. They’re fun and they’re not just for kids anymore. They’re coloring books for adults.

I don’t know about you but I love to color. I don’t have a coloring book but I paint on canvas where I don’t have to worry about staying in the lines.

This concept is all about stress relief and what I’ve been posting about this year – the Holistic lifestyle and the energy that colors have.

The act of coloring alone is distressing alone. For a brief while, all you have to worry about is what crayon to use and to see if your eyes are still good enough to actually see what you’re doing.

Let’s take it one step further and chose the colors that call to you. You can make your “happy little piece of art” any colors you want.

Turn the page until you find a landscape you like and get your favorite  and greens out.

maybe some flowers in a garden?

Feel like going bold with some red?

or spicing it up with some orange?

The point of all these colors and the coloring book is this.

  1. First, you get to be a kid again and color away in your coloring books
  2. You get to enjoy your box of 64 with the little sharpener on the back
  3. You get to enjoy all the marvelous colors all staring at you waiting to be picked
  4. It won’t matter here if your colors don’t match
  5. You have full control of what you want to color
  6. Your sky can be green
  7. You don’t have to stay in the lines
  8. You will be away from you computer
  9. You can color with your kids
  10. You can hang YOUR art on the refrigerator
  11. You will be making decisions that have zero stress
  12. You will actually enjoy yourself as you color.
  13. You’ll find out that “Screaming Green” looks awesome next to “Neon Carrot”
  14. “Cornflower” is going to be on your top 10 favorite colors to use.
  15. “You’ll want “Blush”as a new lipstick color
  16. and last but not least, you’ll find yourself coloring everyday!

Now go get your coloring book, crayons and get your color on … unless you want to finger-paint 🙂

UPDATED: So after I wrote this blog, of course I have to give this a try so here’s my first attempt at coloring, again!
