Have you ever found yourself at the table coloring in your child’s coloring books only to look up and notice that your child has moved onto something else… and you’re still coloring? This is me. I love coloring but I had never found adult coloring books that were cheap enough to actual purchase. I’m a big time bargain shopper when it comes to my own things so I couldn’t justify spending $10 or more on one single coloring book for myself.
I was approached by a brand called Art Therapy recently to do a blog post highlighting their stress relieving coloring books. This post is actually sponsored by Art Therapy and I am so happy that I’m collaborating with them for the next three months. I’ve found myself relaxing more and taking more time for myself amidst the chaos of being a SAHM to two girls under four thanks to their coloring books – and I’m not ashamed to say it. I’m a mom and I enjoy coloring books!
Why is Art Therapy Different?
Art Therapy works a little differently than most coloring book brands. It’s actually a magazine subscription service that delivers adult coloring books to your mailbox every month. Inside each magazine you’ll find gorgeous coloring patterns and small articles that focus on mindfulness and relaxation. These magazines aren’t stuffed full of patterns that you’ll never complete. Instead, each book has six full page patterns along with some mini patterns and inspiring hints and tips to boost your wellbeing.
Because most adult coloring books market themselves as relaxation tools, I feel that investing a little bit of money into a brand like Art Therapy can really go a long way for your mental health. I find that I focus better when doing a busy activity like coloring or doodling, and I do some of my best thinking when I’m coloring.
