I know this is a different type of photo Friday than I normally post. I much prefer to post travel related photos from sights I have seen that I think everyone will like, but this post is more for me to show you all progress in my life.
I’m sure you’re just looking at the photo and thinking “it’s a colored page”. Damn right it is!
I have always sucked at coloring in the lines because I am too impatient whilst coloring. By looking at this photo you can obviously tell that I still suck at coloring in the lines. I give up part way through. It has taken me months to finish this page. I always start a page, then go and see a part of another picture that I want to color in, so finishing a whole page has taken quite a while.
But guys, I FINALLY finished one!
My mother sent me this adult coloring book after I told her time and again how badly I wanted one.
I decided to start coloring to help me relax, and relieve stress.
I am guilty of allowing stress to creep in to my life much to easy, and while sometimes I manage stress great, sometimes not so much.
What I’ve always done to “help with stress” has been to go on day long cleaning sprees, or have a few drinks. While cleaning is productive, it doesn’t help much to do anything about the stress. While having a few drinks can be fun, it isn’t productive, makes me feel sick, adds hundreds of calories, and really does nothing to work on the stress.
I also started this blog because writing helps me with stress. But sometimes I just don’t want to write when I’m stressed because who knows what I may think is appropriate to write and share.
Coloring is something that I figured I could do that is just for me, helps my mind focus, makes me brain think, and is fun and mega relaxing.
I am very proud of myself for finishing an entire coloring page, and can’t wait to finish more!
What do you do for yourself when stressed out? Do you enjoy adult coloring books?
