How I’m Controlling My Depression & Anxiety – A Fan’s Point Of View

MsCreepyX has been a fan of coloring books for a while now and she recently reached out to Inkovator with this video.

Here she shares a mental health update with our community and highlights the value in being able to engage in safe activities which are low cost, low impact and yet have a high stress-relief value.

Adult coloring – freakin’ awesome, medication-free stress and anxiety relief.

Men Who Love Adult Coloring Part 2

What happens when you give a man a coloring book?  Turns out, it’s pretty cool.  At least that’s what I thought when I saw Drew’s video I’m sharing with you here.

“I received two Adult Coloring Books from Andrea Wood Schmitz of http://inkovator.com/. She provided me with Primal Consciousness Volume 1 and The 60’s Come Back Volume 1.

I received these for free in exchange for an honest review. You can purchase your own copy at http://amzn.to/26uX14Q (Drew’s Affiliate Link).

Andrea has four books on Amazon including the two in the video.

They are all a part of a way to connect and recharge yourself through coloring therapy.

I’m personally not that new age but there is something to be said about putting crayon, colored pencil or marker to paper and just losing yourself in the task of coloring. It is very much a recharge that I often need.

How Primal Consciousness is unique!

Unlike other coloring books, these patterns are twisted and complex with just the right degree of difficulty to allow adults to fully engage and enjoy the therapeutic and calming effects of coloring.

The books are 8.5′ by 11′ and are equally fun for left handed colorers as well as right handed.

Work perfect with Faber Castells, Prismas and other coloring pencils as well as gel pens.

Thanks for watching and I do hope that you would consider subscribing.

Colorare: un’attività da bambini?

Già agli inizi del ‘900 uno dei padri della psicoanalisi, Carl Gustav Jung, aveva riconosciuto i benefici del disegno per la salute, in particolare dei Mandala, le immagini circolari spirituali induiste e buddhiste, su cui scrisse ben 4 saggi.

Ma come può colorare essere una forma efficace di arteterapia e un modo per combattere lo stress?

Quando un bambino colora, la sua attenzione è completamente assorbita da quello che sta facendo: scegliere le tonalità che stanno meglio vicine, cercare di restare all’interno dei contorni del disegno, sono tutte azioni che richiedono la massima concentrazione. Tutto ciò che è al di fuori scompare.

Grazia Andre Mur!
