NewLifeOutlook has partnered with illustrator, designer, and author Anne Manera for their first ever giveaway. NLO community members have a chance to win Manera’s Fibromyalgia Mantras adult coloring book, which was designed specifically for fibro warriors in mind.
Filled with pages of mantras — like “Got Spoons?” “Ask for Help,” and “Survivor” — the book was designed to help distract the mind from pain, and as a kind of art therapy for fibromyalgia.
To be entered to win, community members need to ‘like’ Manera’s Facebook page, share this post from NewLifeOutlook, and comment ‘Done.’ Extra entries are also given to those who sign up for the NLO newsletter and/or the online community, and share Manera’s Facebook page.
“This giveaway is a great opportunity to engage our community members,” says NewLifeOutlook community manager Alyssa Winegarden.
“We often discuss different ways to cope with chronic illnesses and many have shared just how much creative hobbies help to distract them from their circumstances or pain in a meditative way. We hope this will be the first collaboration of many!”
The winner of the giveaway will be announced on the NewLifeOutlook|Fibromyalgia Facebook page on January 3, 2017.
Manera has authored many other coloring books, including a diabetes journal that doubles as a coloring book. Inside you can use it to track your diet, blood sugar levels, and other symptoms, while keeping it fun with illustrations to color. She is currently working on a similar journal specifically for fibromyalgia.
