My new book, “Healing Patterns: A Coloring Book for Adults” is now available for purchase online. Paperbacks and the print-at-home download version are for sale at Lulu. You can also expect to find the soft-cover editions at Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble within the next couple months. Yes, I know what you are thinking: CONTRADICTION. How can “coloring” and “adult” appear in the same sub-title? Surely this is a mistake? Well done for being so observant, but you didn’t pick up on an error. This is indeed a therapeutic coloring book for grown-ups. Children don’t get to have all the fun.
The primary focus of the book is to serve as a stress-reducing tool for those who are ill or battling through long periods of rehabilitation. Lowering stress and anxiety levels is particularly important for the ill, as elevated levels of anxiety and stress can slow the healing process. Since none of us are immune to the damaging effects of stress, this book is not exclusively for those whose health has been compromised. “Healing Patterns: A Coloring Book for Adults” can be incorporated into any person’s stress management program. Of course, you could just decide to color for fun without making it a health science project in your life. You may not remember this, but once upon a time coloring was fun for you. I dare you to rediscover the joy of coloring. Need convincing that coloring is an acceptable and healthy activity for normal, intelligent adults? Read more about it in the Healing Patterns section of this website.
