Coloring is an activity that we tend to associate with children. As we grow older, we put aside our crayons and colored pencils for more appropriate writing utensils like pens and highlighters. However, it turns out coloring can be beneficial for adults because of its power to help them de-stress.
The practice generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses, and creativity. In fact, publishers have lately been launching coloring books specifically for adults. The trend is alive and well in countries in Europe and North America.
