Adult Coloring Books are all the rage these days. No pressure, no expectations, just simple fun. Its the perfect activity while catching up on netflix or chatting with friends as you don’t have to be paying strict attention to the page. I was chatting with my sister in law about how much I love adult coloring books and she said they use them for therapy at her work at an in patient mental health hospital. I thought it was interesting that it was used in therapy, as a proven method to lower anxiety and stabilize moods.
Whether you are able to draw anything beyond stick figures, now everyone can enjoy coloring and being creative. Whether you like gardens and animals, or geometric shapes there is a coloring page for you!
