Relax with adult coloring books
When was the last time you took a finely sharpened crayon and began shading in an illustrated image that brought you joy? If you have not thought about coloring since kindergarten, you are missing out on the comfort that comes from such a simple, low-effort hobby. Adult coloring books may not be self-help books, technically speaking, but they can do you a lot of good.
The many science-based benefits of coloring include relaxation and stress reduction. A study from 2018 in the journal The art of psychotherapy even found that art therapy can help reduce pain and anxiety. Another reason why coloring books for adults are top notch these days is that they provide a screen-free escape from reality that makes you feel like a child again. And the beauty of this hobby is that there is no wrong way to color (read: you do not have to be a skilled artist), so let your self-judgment stand at the door.
Find a topic that interests you – you can get inspiration from the best books ever, books for your zodiac sign, books by female authors and novel novels – and then choose from these 20 highly rated coloring books for adults.
