Being a mom is probably one of the most stressful jobs in the world. Right now as I type this, I am surrounded by full laundry baskets, pillows and a chair so I can protect myself and my tablet screen from sticky little fingers. I have built a mom-fort so I can have just a few minutes of peace- just long enough to add another paragraph to this post today.
Mommies have SO much more to do that just changing diapers and fixing school lunches. We're maids, chefs, chauffeurs, wives, nurses, seamstresses, counselors - and on top of that many of us have jobs and even school as well! We can get stretched so thin and wound so tight every day and to keep from completely snapping, we need to just chill out.
When the kiddos have gone to school, or taking a nap or down for the night it's time for you to unwind and seek calm and free your mind .
A wonderful way to free your mind is with a good mandala coloring book.
A mandala is a sacred circle of intricate design used to help bring focus during meditation. You can clear your mind and find inner peace by just studying one. When you gently tap into you creativity and bring color to a blank mandala you can alleviate all the stresses of the day and enjoy true relaxation. Listed below a few of Amazon's top rated mandala coloring books. Get yourself a pack of fine-tip markers or colored pencils, grab a book and enjoy.
