I've been under a lot of stress lately due to things that won't leave my mind and I'm trying to find good ways to relax my mind, clear my head and do something productive while doing so. A while back my good friend started posting some photos of 'adult coloring books' and it got me interested. She said it was a nice way for her to relax and wind down so I thought I'd give it a shot.
Life in Coloring's Life Lessons adult coloring book not only came with 12 amazing colored pencils but every page had an inspirational quote to go a long with it. I saw it as a little reminder of what I was doing and the reason why. The book is a great size and it's made really well--as are the pencils--and it's great to carry around in my purse. I've found myself sitting on my desk, listening to Air or an equally chill band and just getting lost in reliving my childhood while taking a little break from the insanity that is work.
One of the things I want for next year is to be as stress free as possible and I plan on getting that any way that I can. This is a great start!
