The 1980s Lakers were nicknamed “Showtime” due to their fast break-offense led by Magic Johnson. The team won five championships in a nine-year span, and contained Hall of Famers Johnson, Abdul-Jabbar, and James Worthy, and was led by Hall of Fame coach Pat Riley. After Abdul-Jabbar and Johnson retired, the team struggled in the early 1990s, before acquiring Shaquille O’Neal and Kobe Bryant in 1996. With the duo, who were led by another Hall of Fame coach Phil Jackson, the team won three consecutive titles between 2000 to 2002, securing the franchise its second “three-peat”. The Lakers won two more championships in 2009 and 2010, but failed to regain their former glory in the following decade.
Given that sometimes people work on enormous, long-lasting projects, it is normal to feel hopeless and like it's never-ending. Don't lose your hope, it will end eventually, you just need to be patient. How do you achieve that patience in critical times? When you color, you complete one simple task of coloring a picture from its top to the bottom, making sure every single detail is filled the best you could. This simple act of finishing one single coloring page within your coloring book or coloring app can bring you a great sense of accomplishment. That sense surely can boost your confidence, and transfer to your mood regarding the task you have in your company. It must bring a successful achievement there as well. The repetitive, low-stress, and "no brainer" act of color lends itself to relaxation. The calming effects not only helps to reduce stress levels, but also can help to bring you back to your youth. Before the road trip take the kids to the stores so they can pick out their road trip coloring books and other activities. This is an even better choice because the kids will settle beforehand which type of activity is most interesting and the best for them. Tell them that you'll hold onto the items until the road trip and they'll spend the time until the trip in anticipation of playing with their new toys. They'll be that much more likely to stay involved with their coloring books and crayons on the trip rather than on each other, so you'll be that much more relaxed while on the drive. That said make sure that the kid prints those coloring pages on a used sheet of paper and tell the kid not to waste paper. That way you will also make sure that he grows onto to become and environmentally conscious individual.
