We all know that coloring is one of the best pass time activities for kids. Can you just forget that idea for a moment!
In this busy world, where every single thing around us is stressful and uncomfortable, all we need is doing something relaxing and soothing.. I think you got my point!!
Oh yeah! Coloring is NOT ONLY FOR KIDS.
At the beginning of 2015, coloring books producers started targeting Grown Ups, and began producing colouring books for them.
We are talking about Adult Coloring Books, these are some intricately designed books, and they are created to help adults to get rid of stress and pressure and also to improve the focus of their mind.
Hephzibah Kaplan, director at the London Art Therapy Centre said: “When choosing a colouring-in book with more complex or abstract images the convention is generally to keep different colours within different lines. This requires a relaxed focus where the outline is containing and the mark-making repetitive and smooth. So a bit like repeating a mantra where repetition is a means to relaxation, colouring-in is also a type of mediation.”
She added: “Meditation, whether secular or otherwise, has known benefits to mind, body and spirit. When focusing deeply on a simple yet safe task, other anxieties become less present, less pervasive.”
Here is our choice of the best coloring books for adult, those will take you for sure to another place where you will feel calm and happiness after a stressful day.
