I adore Saturdays. If you could snuggle a day of the week & make it good food & buy it pretty things, it would be Saturday that I would richly spoil. For me & Mr. Charming, Saturday is a day to celebrate time off together, to play with our fur babies, to relax, enjoy our home, get out and have date days. We do our meal prepping, church, bible study and grocery shopping on Sundays, so Saturday is really our day to rejuvenate and relax.
Today has been jam-packed and fun. I awoke to Mr. Charming serving up gluten-free blueberry waffles and organic eggs and then we headed to the new gym that opened and got signed up. We have a home gym, but I know he was missing some of the machines, and I honestly do so much better in a group class environment then trying to get in five workouts a week on my own. Once that was done, we headed to a prepper festival (where I won a "The Club" for my car, haha, and then we went shopping at Mr. Charming's favorite camp store. After a busy morning of running around I wanted to take a break in our day and relax for a bit. Enter my new hobby.
I know the whole world is talking about Adult Coloring, and it's for a great reason. I mean, guys, we get to COLOR and call it "me time". As an adult, with responsibilities, life, bills and all that fun stuff, being able to take time away from all of that and color makes the five year old inside me SUPER happy. That and gluten-free macarons. I mean. How CUTE are they? Such a fun treat.
Art Therapy is a publication that inspires creativity, relaxation and positivity. All wins in my book on how we need to view life. Over a half-century ago, a doctor by the name of Carl Jung started prescribing Art Therapy to his patients to promote health and found that coloring ranks as high as meditation when it comes to relaxing our minds and bodies.
Subscribing to Art Therapy's magazine service also allows me to receive new pages every week so I always have something fresh and new to work on in my down time. For more information visit The Art Therapy Collection - for just $4.95 you can receive the first two issues, as it is now available in the U.S. as of October 2015. I prefer this over the big books, due to their affordability & portability when I travel.
