Recently, I got into coloring books for adults – my kids love coloring symmetrical designs, but I never thought about doing it myself until now. Now that I’ve caught on to the relaxing art of coloring as a grown up, I’m hooked!
There are so many benefits that grown ups, especially, gain from coloring activities. Choosing just the right colors for your drawings stimulates your brain. They’re the crossword puzzles of our times.
The fact that they reduce stress is enough for me to love them! It’s a positive stress reducer as opposed to the alternative – stress eating! Yikes.
