Many of us experience fear every single day: job loss, loneliness, relationships, money, sickness, anxiety, and more. Fear has become infused in our culture, and it affects our day-to-day functioning and quality of life. A simple and inexpensive way to relieve stress is by coloring images, which can be soothing. Some even consider it an alternative to stressors, ultimately aiding in reversing the effects of anxiety. Refocusing your attention on something completely different to engage in a mental, physical, and emotional shift can help break the pattern of consistent stress and allow one to rejuvenate.
Creating art does just that! Therapist Lucy Mucklow, and artist Angela Porter teamed up to design a book that encourages coloring and engages the creative right side of the brain. It will prove to be a great companion when at home or traveling.
