Host an Adult Coloring Party
How do you relieve stress? Do you take the time to relax and chill out? Some of us eat our feelings away, others practice yoga or go for a long run, while some do deep breathing exercises. As a nation, we can't seem to wind down, slow down, unplug, or just take a moment and stop. We are go-go-go 24/7 and relaxing is never on our to-do lists. Unfortunately, this can lead to a ton of stress when you don't take the time to relax, which in turn, can lead to headaches, anxiety, a lowered immune system, and even heart problems. Surprisingly, adults everywhere are turning coloring as a way of relaxing during their busy lives. They're even throwing their very own adult coloring parties! Surprised? Coloring isn't just for kids anymore. This hot trend is all over the news, and coloring books for adults are even topping bestseller lists. So how does coloring actually help you destress? In an article by Huffington Post, psychologist Gloria Martínez Ayala reports that we activate different areas of our two cerebral hemispheres when we color.
