18 Adult Coloring Books to Relieve Stress

18 Adult Coloring Books to Relieve Stress

As I said in an  earlier post, coloring is not just for the kids anymore, and it is not just something that keeps the 10 and under set busy on a rainy afternoon. It is now what adults around the world are picking up. It is becoming the latest most popular trend among adults to get their stress under control and distract themselves from the daily pressures of life. Here is a list of adult coloring books that are sure to accommodate just the right mood. I’m sure you’ll find one that’s perfect for you. Happy drawing.

Releasing your Anger

Sometimes people in chronic pain have to deal with idiots. The kind of people who say things like ,” just pop a pill and pull yourself together”. Worse still, some  of those people think chronic pain sufferers are lazy. “You don’t look like you’re in pain”, they’ll say. If you’re dealing with such an idiot, you might be tempted to get into a screaming match. However, that will only add to you stress. The irreverent coloring books above offer a witty and fun way to let you express yourself. You can find quirky entertaining quips to suit your mood. They’ll crack you up, but they are definitely not for the kiddies. So please  keep them away from the kids. That said, these books can be used by anyone who has ever had someone upset them. Go ahead and dedicate a page to them, but remember  this is about lessening your stress. Ignore the instinct to send them the page.   Just have yourself a good laugh.

Understanding Chronic Pain and Healing The Emotional, Mental, and Spirit Self–A Resource Guide

Understanding Chronic Pain and Healing The Emotional, Mental, and Spirit Self–A Resource Guide

Pain that persists and becomes worse over time can create feelings of despair. You don’t have to feel that way. Here are resources that will help you become, in the words of a well- respected psychologist Maggie Phillips, PH.D., “your own best healer.” On the other hand, you may just need to feel and be a more revitalized self. I have included programs that will boost your self confidence. Self- esteem, after all, is an important element when speaking about the body and mind link to a healthier you. So, lets start our journey to understanding chronic pain and healing the emotional, mental, and spirit self.

Before we begin, let me just say a word about the five general areas that I hope to cover  in this resource page.

  1. Medical side. When one first experiences chronic pain it’s natural to seek a medical solution, to believe the problem can be solved by medications or surgery.
  2. Retraining The Brian.  Pain is produced by the brain. It’s possible that even when the body is out of danger, that is tissue is healed as best as possible, on going pain still persists. The brain must be retrained to deal with the sensitivity of the nervous system.
  3. Understanding How Emotions effect the nervous system and how to reduce stress.
  4. Diet, life style, and building self- esteem. What we eat, how we live, and how we feel about ourself effects how well we manage our health.
