Mommy Monday’s – Adult Coloring

Adult coloring – when the fad started I knew I wouldn’t be able to say no to this. I grew up with artist parents so we were always putting together art projects for us to try, but coloring was one of my favorites.

The fact that it is now acceptable for adults to do is not something that I am sad about! I admittedly have struggled with a lot of postpartum anxiety and have been keeping my mind open to different outlets to help relax my mind, and adult coloring has been recommended for these reasons.

What I like about it:

-It is mindless. Someone draws the lines for you and you just scribble in them.
-It helps you be creative!
-It is expressive. Get your mood out with the colors you choose.
-It is relaxing! My favorite time to color is with a glass of wine in the evening after my kid has fallen asleep.

I have seen lots of people coloring with gel pens, which I would actually recommend. The nice thing about gel pens is that they are low maintenance (it drives me crazy sharpening my pencils all the time!). The disadvantage is that they can be a little expensive to replace if you color a lot. I use colored pencils because they are erasable and my little doll of a toddler LOVES coloring on walls πŸ™‚
