Today 8/2 Is National Coloring Book Day: Buy a Book + Start Coloring!

Are you coloring these days?
Have you bitten by the coloring book craze? Do you have your own pencils or markers set aside? Do you have multiple coloring books? At my house, it’s a big deal. I have my own (rather large) pencil set and 2 books. My kid has a couple of books, pens and pencils. You might wonder WHY we are doing this and maybe you might be right. There is a method and meaning to this madness. It’s not only fun, it’s relaxing. It’s the mental vacation that one can take without spending a chunk of change at a restaurant or at a concert or heading to the airport for a trip. It’s the escape from daily living and -more importantly- being constantly plugged into the web, social media, as well as family and friends.

Today is National Coloring Book day and there is a reason to this post. A brand did send me the release and information on the various books of their client. I didn’t get any books or tools or anything. It’s my choice to feature this and I am featuring it because I need a break. YOU need a break. Our world needs to escape into a bit of a vacuum where nothing and very few people can reach them. It’s relaxing, restful and energizing. It offers peace. If you can’t get into meditation or hypnosis, you can do this. It’s so easy. It’s pretty affordable too. The ones listed here are available on Amazon.com. They are also available — along with many, more coloring books from other publishers and from other stores. Explore, look around– even into a young adult section for interesting coloring books. It’s worth your time!

What booksellers are saying about coloring books:

Just when a sympathetic heart seems like it can’t take anymore, reach for something to help quiet the mind and ease the soul. Inkspirations coloring books for adults offer a way to turn off negativity while healing the spirit. Art therapy has long proven its effects as an aid in emotional and mental restoration, and it is not news that coloring as active meditation reduces stress and quiets thoughts. However, from the original publishers of Chicken Soup for the Soul now comes a line of coloring books ready to encourage, inspire, and help worries fade.

Whether coloring with friends, family, or on your own, it doesn’t take much to color your day a little brighter. With moving quotes alongside unique and graceful images, Inkspirations coloring books include a wide array of themes to help express creativity and enjoy therapy through coloring. To start overcoming heartache, releasing tensions, and building positive energy, readers can visit the new Inkspirations website, www.Inkspirations.com.

The website is a reader’s portal to a more colorful world, giving a peek at the wide spread of unique pages Inkspirations has to offer, and some highly anticipated releases.

Inkspirations for Women (March 2016)
Inkspirations for Recovery (February 2016)

These are great coloring books but don’t think that these are the only ones out there. Target has some, Barnes and Noble, even department and specialty stores have them. Even school supply stores have them too. You just have to check around. Find one that resonates with you. Think about carrying one and specific crayons, pencils or markers when you travel or have appointments where waiting is inevitable. Bring in the calm. Bring in the peace. Bring in the markers– and don’t forget the book- the coloring book!!
