If there is one thing I have learned is that sometimes my time experiences tend to be subjective and are highly influenced by my emotional state. My insecurities and fears about the past and what’s about to come also tend to make me not totally appreciate my current state.

But I have also come to realize that the key to going through each day, learning, and appreciating different things in life is paying attention, which is why I am now a big advocate for practicing mindfulness.

Yes, having meditation sessions has helped, but I recently discovered how to shift my emotional attention and thought process through mindfulness coloring books. This has been significantly helpful, especially since I am an art lover.

If you are on a journey to practicing mindfulness and have not yet discovered coloring mindfulness, or you are ready to explore, the books on this list may just be what you have been looking for.

There are many mindful coloring books I have come across, but I have found this particular one to be very unique. It features a dreamy world that immerses you in a world of magical creatures for stress relief while fueling your fantasy spirits. You get to color unique fairy gardens and mystical creatures as you tell your fairy tale.

Enchanted Forest Fairies is mainly a book for adult women and men who want to relax and unwind any time of day. But I would also recommend it to teens who want to have creative fun.

Chaos to Clarity, by Polina Lilu (2023)

When I came across this book, I first had to acknowledge how perfect the title was. This honestly drove me to purchase it, and I have no bit of regret. The book has helped me, especially when I have wanted to start a new routine or habit. It is very practical, especially if you feel like your life is an unending marathon without any lasting change.

Chaos to Clarity is for you whenever you want to unwind from repetitive daily chaos and stressors. It is ideal for those moments of anxiety or feelings of indifference and hopelessness- whether you feel burdened by a hurtful experience, a disappointing relationship, or an unsatisfactory career.

The book contains less than a hundred pages, but Polina has made sure to make each one count. The journaling prompts she gives are excellent for developing self-acceptance, encouraging you to cultivate happiness in your life, developing your confidence, and doing shadow work. I like that they are introspective for actual self-reflection and for giving a sense of direction toward goal achievement.

The mandalas in the book are original and offer an interesting coloring experience, but what I can't get over is the stories and responses other people have given in the book. These are as insightful as they are fun.

Mindfulness is about being able to release your emotions and giving a voice to the annoyance and frustrations of life. I don't know about you, but cursing away these exasperations works for me. You can do so with this book.

Curse Away the Stress offers a distinctive approach towards stress relief through intricate mandalas accompanied by expressive curse words. I consider the coloring technique the book offers to be therapeutic enough to help embrace your inner sailor.

The mandalas in the book are carefully crafted, just like the curse words are carefully selected.

Curse Away the Stress provides an unconventional combination with its illustrations and liberating language, and these are both powerful for stress and anxiety relief.

The book is superb whether you are a coloring novice or an expert.
