Long considered children’s territory, coloring has enjoyed a massive resurgence among adults in recent years.
Although some question if adult coloring is merely a trend, there are plenty of reasons to believe the activity is here to stay.
Coloring not only allows you to create artwork that you can share and showcase, but it also has an extra therapeutic potential to relieve stress and promote mindfulness. Coloring can relax the brain and help you decompress.
So how can you reap the benefits of coloring?
Start by setting aside time each day and devoting it to taking a step back from your daily routine. Try searching the internet for free coloring pages that you can print at home.
Ensure you are selecting high-resolution pages to prevent ending up with a blurry finished product. In terms of coloring tools, try using high-quality Prismacolor Premier®Soft Core Colored Pencils. These colored pencils are great for blending, and lay down rich pigments that will pop on coloring book pages.
You may even want to visit a store to flip through a coloring book in person-most stores carry a wide variety of coloring books with different themes and patterns so you’ll never run out of inspiration!
