Best Self Care Gifts For 2022
Inspirational Coloring Book
What do coloring books have in common with self care? The process of coloring can be therapeutic for adults. Cleveland Clinic reported on the benefits of coloring on the adult mind.
Clinical psychologist Scott M. Bea, PsyD at Cleveland Clinic explained that coloring books are beneficial for adults because it emphasizes refocusing attention. Cleveland Clinic quoted Bea, “Adult coloring requires modest attention focused outside of self-awareness. It’s a simple activity that takes us outside ourselves in the same way, cutting the lawn, knitting or taking a Sunday drive can all be relaxing.”
An intriguing benefit they highlight is that coloring books present a space for the colorist to let their guard down. There are low stakes involved with coloring books which makes it a better playing field for relaxing yourself.
This is why the Inspirational Coloring Book by Lovet Planners is recommended as one of the best self care gifts for 2022. Not only does it provide the coloring pages to encourage the therapeutic practice, but the coloring page designs are uplifting, healing, and motivating!

Without bridging into toxic positivity, you can practice positive thinking. So can your friends with the 100-Day Positive Thinking Journal. The power of thinking is steeped in self care. Why?
According to Hopkins Medicine, “Researchers suspect that people who are more positive may be better protected against the inflammatory damage of stress. Another possibility is that hope and positivity help people make better health and life decisions and focus more on long-term goals. Studies also find that negative emotions can weaken immune response.”
