My best friend and I have been using coloring as a way to relieve stress and anxiety. Bestie is amazing at coloring. She can pick the perfect colors, blend them, shade them, and generally make them look like professional art. My skills, on the other hand, are just basic. That is okay by me though. Being able to use a little creativity and be calm and focused for a few minutes a day is what coloring is all about to me. Huffington Post has an interesting post about coloring for stress relief here for some more info.
