I was going to link to a coloring book I have that is helpfully called Calm the F* Down, but I didn’t want everyone to see nasty online ads for the next week, so we’re featuring this one instead. We’ve talked about adult coloring books before, and if you have problems meditating but you’re stressed out, and doing a lot of doom-scrolling, and can’t focus on anything, do some coloring! It’s absorbing, it’s meditative, it’s relaxing — and it’s a nice, finite break from work. You can say to yourself, I’m going to take one color of pencil and do some coloring with that, for example.
If you have older kids, you can color with them, too. I don’t know if I’d show my older son the one I have, which is full of phrases like, “something to do until the Valium kicks in,” or this one, which is an ode to alcohol, but there are a lot of others that are kid-friendly, like interesting cities and things like that — in case your kids would roll their eyes at children’s coloring books. This one is $7.97 at Amazon, and there are many more at Amazon, Target, and Barnes & Noble. Pictured: Drinking with Animals
