Six Days of Holiday Colors
Day #5 – Color Away that Stress
Going a layer deeper, I’m pleased to share a coloring confession from Dana Lee of RealFitTV:
“I’m home sick today. food poisoning sick. or something. Blah.
Do you get sick often? I can’t remember the last time I was really sick to be honest. And even this time wasn’t ridiculous. Thank god. But still, I had to cancel my appointments for the day. ugh. Not my favorite thing to do.
So, right now, I rest & recover. Nap a bit on & off, eat a frozen popsicle from time to time, & type up some emails – like this – or break out the sharpies & color when I’m feeling up to it. :-)…
I have a whole “Holiday Stress Eating Survival Guide,” that goes along with it (to handle parties, buffet eating & the holidays themselves), I will be delivering it thoroughly in a group coaching call tomorrow.
And funny enough, one of the stress-eating tactics we’ll discuss is ways to distract yourself…. this is my go-to tactic not just to contemplate stress eating, but also as way to unwind, in general, or to kill time when I’m tired of looking at devices.
I color. Coloring makes me happy 🙂 ANY & ALL times of the year. Even on my sick days. I know – my husband laughs at me too. But, it works! I’ll break out my sharpies & my coloring book and it’s like a meditation to me. I just love it. Do you color?”
Now that’s cool coloring. Thanks, Dana. Check out Dana’s Fitness tips. Take time to color. Enjoy each day!
Interesting timing on this blog. I keep hearing more and more about coloring books for adults.
…And I actually got an official color me happy book for Christmas. Santa was listening!
I don’t color but maybe someday. I bought a coloring book and new sharp pencils for a daughter-in-law for Christmas. She needs to relax. The book says it’s good for meditation. We’ll see!
My coloring is more doodling and I’ve gotten to the point where it doesn’t matter if it’s “finished” or “pretty.” Try it. And thanks for stopping by.
