Coloring Books Could Help Adults De-Stress

Art-thérapieFeeling a bit tense and anxious? Perhaps picking up a coloring book may be the solution.

Many psychologists recommend that adults cast aside the notion that only children should color.  These experts theorize that “when we focus on a particular activity, we focus on it and not on our worries.” According to The Huffington Post, “the practice generates wellness, quietness and also stimulates brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity.”

A number of publishers throughout Europe and North America have released these types of books for adult readers. Some of these publications have become bestsellers in France and the United Kingdom. What do you think?
