Adult coloring books are a trend that has picked up a lot of steam in recent years. Grown-ups are reconnecting with their creative side to reduce stress and find inner peace and happiness. Coloring is a great way to unplug and let go, especially after a long day at the office. There are even meditation color books designed to help you de-stress.
“Meditation” in terms of coloring is not the same as a traditional meditation practice, as you will not be focusing on your breath and clearing your mind. Instead, you will focus your attention on coloring, unlocking the creative side of your brain, and through the act of coloring you can clear your mind of other worries.
There are tons of adult coloring books available with different themes and styles. We’re focusing specifically on the ones that are the best for meditating, relieving stress, and helping you feel better. If you’re new to the world of adult coloring books, check out these colored pencils, pens, and markers.
