Also known as “adult coloring,” it’s a great way to unplug your mind gently and get it to feel content with simpler goals. The act of selecting colors and deciding where and how to apply the colors to the design is very soothing.
This is a theme that comes up a lot as I think about creating, but it’s actually the pleasant intention of creating something beautiful that makes coloring soothing.
I also like that I can listen to a book or music while doing it, to help pass the time. It’s also fun to take to a favorite bar or coffee shop and color with a friend.
I found this YouTube video of these two couples that decided to try coloring every day for a month. It turns out, 3 of the 4 people liked it.
