I have been having major anxiety lately, and been trying to ignore it, which just makes it worse.....
I've found coloring had really helped me calm down a little sometimes..... I have a book (and need to get coloring pencils) to keep at work.... keep it right at my desk, and while I'm working, lightly color to sooth myself

It does help me too. But I don't just color now. I do art stuff to soothe pain. Sometimes I just kind of like transfer the pain I've been feeling to the art I created. Something like that. I started with the coloring too and then apparently begin sketching and then painting and the process just keeps going on.

that's awesome! I did one painting class for a bday party, and got bit by the bug!
my hubby got me some painting supplies to start off!

Yeah! I've sold my paintings so I could help out with my parents to pay college fees. I thought that hobby when I get emotional break helped me out a little even financially.

that's great! I'm hoping one day I can maybe do that as well....
