    Oddly enough, long before this coloring craze too off, my late sister suggested to me that I take up coloring as a hobby because of my stressful job. However, I, personally found that coloring in these coloring books was quite stressful for me and did nothing for me. But, I did find out that if I drew my own picture freehand and “colored” with coloring pencils, I was less stressed and felt so much better. I have learned that drawing a picture is calming and declutters my brain; while the actual act of “coloring” the picture just makes me feel like a kid again. I guess I look at the colored pencils like I used to look at my box of crayons as a little child. I have also found that, although, I am an adult, for me, I only use my school #2 pencils to draw and my popular school brand colored pencils to “color” the picture. In my thinking, there is a whole lot of wonderful drawing/sketching/ colored pencils of all kinds of prices and quality; but, when you use the meant basically for children, a whole new world opens up and you can find out who and what you are and can do. It might also help for some to concentrate or focus on one subject. Of course, others may need more variety. That is just a thought. Thank you.

      Beth, I agree that some of those coloring books can be overwhelming! I’m glad you persevered and figured out a way to make coloring a stress reliever for yourself.
