I saw a thing on Facebook about adult color pages that are supposed to help relieve stress, I don't so much have a lot of stress but I do have bad anxiety and I thought I'd try it and see if it helps. I get so bad and so worked up that I've started a bad habit of cutting to help snap out of it and I'm trying to stop. I just get so worked up and upset and crying and then I cut and am calm and relaxed. I know it's wrong but it's all I've found that helped, so in looking for alternative ways to help deal with that. I figure I like to color and it's cool pics to color so might as well try it. Curious if anyone has tried these and if they've worked or not. I'm not expecting a miracle or anything but if I could do these when I start feeling anxious and it help maybe would help me with the attacks and stuff.

I've only tried this:
It's just the same as any other coloring books really. It's just that most of them are patterned, and so I guess the repetitiveness makes it mindless and calming - or at least that's how it should be in theory. Personally, I just found it trite and wanted a break from the monotony instead. But then again, I wasn't using it for its intended purpose but more for my entertainment. Maybe it'll work on you. No harm done in giving it a try.0
