National Coloring Book Day

National Coloring Book Day
Coloring books have gotten some serious, grown-up attention lately. National Coloring Book Day (August 2) helps us relive our childhood playdates and discover new health and wellness benefits now that coloring is no longer just for kids. In fact, adult coloring books seem to be the latest wellness and relaxation trend that helps people find happiness between the lines.
National Colorting Book Day Activities
Host a coloring book party
Indulge in coloring supplies
Set aside some coloring 'me' time
Gather some friends and turn a childhood playdate into an adult party. Everybody chip in for a sitter with activities for the kids in another room or at home so you can really enjoy yourself.
Designate a driver and who knows, maybe coloring book parties will become the next best happy hour activity!
Ever dreamed about that giant box of Crayola crayons as a kid? Or maybe having an endless supply of markers to color the entire rainbow? Take your tools up a notch to make your childhood dreams come true and color your way to happy.
Sometimes coloring solo makes the best art therapy. Treat yourself and set aside that extra hour for your own time of introspective mindfulness. For those who were always searching for chill time, coloring books could be the golden ticket.
Why We Enjoy National Coloring Book Day
You Feel Like a Kid Again
We can find solace between the lines
You can color your way to bliss
Just think back to when you were a kid, filling page after page with colorful scribbling, only updated to reflect your much-improved motor and attention skills and worldly experiences.
Doesn't it sound nice to take a leisurely hour sipping a cup of coffee and getting blissfully lost in a sea of boundless imagination?
Engaging in self-care is important and coloring is a restorative exercise. Coloring allows us to push other thoughts out of our head and focus on a simple task, which alleviates any free-floating anxiety. It's like therapy without a therapist.
Coloring is a no-pressure, judgement-free activity. In fact, it's one of the few activities that doesn't come with any expectations and allows you creative freedom.
Anyone, whether a child, an established artist, or just someone looking for fun; can color and enjoy the vibrant benefits.
