You read the title correctly. Many adults are coloring for relaxation, stress release and in some cases, coloring instead of taking costly therapy. A week ago, I heard about this latest trend. Adults are gathering, taking out their coloring books and coloring for stress release. Is it awkward to initially ask your friends to drop by the house so you can color together.
I was a little concerned what I might find when I researched adult coloring books. But the books are legitimate, more sophisticated than a child's coloring book, mostly filled with geometric patterns. I have my own coloring book coming out soon. It is a companion to my children's picture book, What If A Zebra Had Triangles? Maybe I should have the publisher add the words Adult Coloring Book and I might have a hit on my hands. Recently adult coloring books ranked in the top Ten on the Amazon best-sellers list.
Adults claim when they color, it allows your mind to relax and go blank. Coloring allows you to let go of the worry of bills, chores and work. Same benefits happen for people in Wisconsin when they get together and drink, maybe I'll start the trend here. What's your choice of relaxation? Are you ready to try adult coloring therapy?
