This is one of those ideas you say to yourself, “Why didn’t I think of this?” Coloring Books for Adults! The idea is to help adults de-stress and slow down our crazy-busy-every-minute-of the-day-life.
I first heard of the Coloring Books for Adults on NPR. The guest explained how life has become more stressful in this fast-paced world because we are always connected by smart phones and computers. Her advice – disconnect from your electronic devices and color.
Disconnect? How many times have I wanted and needed to do that?
Have you ever seen a child that is coloring stressed out? Nope, me neither!
Coloring books for adults are perfect for friends, family members or co-workers who are extremely busy and who could use a little help to unwind and relax. Coloring will bring back their carefree days of childhood with no grown-up worries. Heck, you should try it for yourself!
Right now, Coloring Books for Adults are selling like hot cakes in stores.
I met a woman in the bookstore while we were both looking at coloring books. She told me she keeps one on her night stand and colors most evenings instead of reading a book before falling asleep.
She explained it was more relaxing than reading because your mind is not working.
“I’m less tense, less worried and in a state of enjoying the simple art of coloring,” the woman said.
I was sold! After I purchased my first coloring book and color pencils, I purchased another one for a friend who had surgery. She was totally surprised and her immediate response was laughter! She couldn’t wait to color!
I purchased a coloring book and box of color gel pens for a birthday gift and then several more coloring books and crayons to give to friends “just because.” You don’t always have to have a reason to make someone happy and less stressed.
