Angela Porter, Lacy Mucklow
Be Stress-Free and Color is the perfect book for stressed-out adults who want to reconnect, simply and easily, with their inner creativity. In this guided coloring book for adults looking for some me-time, art therapist Lacy Mucklow and artist Angela Porter offer up over 50 coloring pages, all designed to help you unplug and unwind.
With so much chaos in the world and stress in our daily lives, we need a way to relieve the tension and avoid burnout, illness, or worse. A simple and inexpensive way to relieve stress is by coloring images, which is soothing and could ultimately aid in reversing the effects of anxiety. Refocusing your attention on something completely different engages a mental, physical, and emotional shift that can help break the pattern of consistent stress and allow you to rejuvenate.
Be Stress-Free and Color features designs that tackle seven of the most common stressors experienced by people worldwide: disorganization and chaos, relationships of all kinds, financial difficulties, employment, health concerns, time management, and traveling and commuting. You can explore the benefits of putting pencil (or crayon!) to paper and channel your day-to-day stresses into a satisfying, creative environment.
Be Stress-Free and Color will have you enjoying the day and relaxing before you know it!
