Adult Coloring Books
What are adult coloring books?
Coloring books are no longer just for kids. In fact, they have art therapy benefits that can calm stress and reduce anxiety.
According to the American Art Therapy Association, art therapy is a mental health profession in which the process of making and creating artwork is used to "explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem."
Adult coloring is also a form of meditation. The practice of coloring allows you to focus only on the moment while switching off our brains from other thoughts and anxiety.
