It All Started With The Three Stooges

He was a regular watcher of “The Three Stooges”, a man who appreciated humor and who no doubt would have laughed when the organist much to her horror, inadvertently triggered some sexy Latin bstoogles and coloring bookeat during the middle of his funeral.

So then it was only natural that I would seek to capture some of the humorous themes of recovery common to all ages in the form of a knee replacement adult cartoon coloring book.

If you are new to adult coloring you might be wondering what all the fuss is.

Adult coloring allows those who aren’t as artistically gifted to engage in a creative process and reap the therapeutic benefits of art therapy.

“Adult coloring is a growing trend and consumers are really taking to the idea,” reports Matthew Lore of The Experiment Publishing group. “Not only is it calming and good for your health, it’s just fun! The demand is increasing exponentially as the word spreads.”

Meanwhile according to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, researchers have conducted studies to explore the impact of laughter on health. After evaluatingcup-1009228_640 participants before and after a humorous event (i.e., a comedy video), studies have concluded that episodes of laughter helped to reduce pain, decrease stress-related hormones and boost the immune system in participants.

Officially, the American Lung Association recommends 52 stress reducers and coloring hits a few of them: disconnecting from phones, talking problems out with friends, focusing on one thing at a time, simplifying and doing something enjoyable.

Working with Dave Allred, an accomplished cartoonist, 21 unique and irreverently funny cartoons were created that double as coloring pages to bring laughter and stress relief to the knee replacement recovery journey. It’s called “Color And Laugh Your Way Through Knee Replacement Recovery” and it’s a fascinating new entry into the adult coloring book market. Its uniqueness lies in its combined emphasis on coloring as therapeutic stress relief and the use of humor as good medicine.

The 600,000 plus patients who undergo knee replacement surgery understand stress and discomfort. This little book will bring some laughter and joy to the process. Ninety-five percent of the time or more everything works out great but in the meantime mind and emotions tied in a wad of nervousness and fear can get the best of us.

My first book was created with the intention of instilling confidence and empowering patients and while it’s very successful there are still times where levity and/or quiet calm might just be the best medicine.

Adult cartoon coloring book for knee replacement patientsI hope you’ll give the book a try and as always I value your feedback. The book is now available on Amazon.

There is nothing like a great “Winston Churchill” quote to brighten up the day and to round up a post on humor.

In 1946 Churchill meet Bessie Braddock, a plump Labour MP and Tory-hater, who told him: “Winston, you are drunk.” “Madam,” he replied, “you are ugly, and I will be sober in the morning.”

When Churchill was on a lecture tour of America and was served a buffet lunch of cold chicken, “May I have some breast?” he asked his hostess. “Mr. Churchill,” she replied, “In this country we ask for white meat or dark meat.” The following day Churchill sent her an orchid, with the message: “I would be obliged if you would pin this on your white meat.”

When Churchill was told, while he was in the lavatory, that the Lord Privy Seal had come to see him. “Tell the Lord Privy Seal that I am sealed in the privy and can only deal with one s*** at a time,” he bellowed.

Ah the Irish-English sense of humor, I do have my Father to blame.

About The Author

Michelle, PT

Michelle Stiles called "the no nonsense" therapist, by her patients, created a company called Cowboy Up Recovery after recognizing the bankruptcy of the present medical model. Too many people regard conventional medical wisdom as gospel, ignoring the subversive influences of Big Pharma and Big Medicine. She believes, Americans in general are being trained from an early age to defer to experts in numerous areas of life and losing the impulses for self-responsibility and self-reliance in the process. Over-diagnosis and over-medicating has become endemic. While thankful for the best miracles of modern medicine, she encourages people of all persuasions to listen to their bodies and seek out answers to maintain not just an absence of disease but optimal health. Her advice is: Cowboy Up, no one cares more about your health than you do.

    Great idea! I used adult coloring in the assisted living when I was working there. The residents loved it. It was very soothing and they felt pride in the works they produced. Good luck with your new product. P.S. Love! those quotes!
