If you haven’t been living under a rock this past year, then you’ve probably seen or heard of adult coloring books which have become a huge craze. I even released my very own coloring book this summer! Now if you haven’t given it a try yet, you need to! Do you remember coloring as a kid and how fun it was? Well, you can re-live that with adult coloring books – right now.
Why every adult should start coloring
Because You Secretly Like To Color
It’s no secret that I just like to color. Now that it’s socially acceptable, I can pull out a coloring book and color to my hearts content. And if you’re like me, then you’ve just been WAITING for your chance to take your love of coloring public. So go for it!
You know when you have 5 loads of laundry, a sink full of dirty dishes AND the dog just puked on the carpet? One of THOSE days when you would do literally anything before tackling your to-do list? Let your coloring book be your guide and you can put those necessities on hold just a little while longer. You’re welcome!
The kids are back in school and the weather is getting cooler, soooo what is there to do in your free time? Sure you can try and find something to watch on Netflix but you will probably end up scrolling through the channels a hundred times. OR you could pick up an adult coloring book and color! That sounds a lot better to me! You can spend hours upon hours coloring all sorts of pictures. Those coloring books are FILLED with so many pages, before you know it it’ll be time to go pick up your kid’s from school.
Coloring can be a huge stress reliever, it is actually a proven fact. So if you find yourself having a stressful day and need to get away from it all, maybe right before you go to bed take that time to pull out a coloring book and just color your stress away. You’d be surprised at how well it really works. Don’t focus on anything else but a beautiful picture which you’re bringing to life with color.
Helps With Anxiety
With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays coming up, if you have anxiety it is probably going through the ROOF! Great, right! That is why you need to get yourself some coloring books! Coloring is an activity that causes a part of our brain that controls our fight or flight response to calm down and let your brain relax. This can also help with other problems such as depression that can be worsened by this time of year.
Even if you’re still skeptical you should give it a try, you never know you might love it just as much as everyone else, why miss out on this amazing trend that doesn’t look like it’s gonna go out of style anytime soon.
