They Reduce Stress by Allowing You to Create Something Beautiful
People who swear by adult coloring books often claim that their coloring activity becomes a way to reduce stress in their daily life. This should come as no surprise; coloring allows you to act creatively and to focus all your efforts on creating something beautiful or unique. According to Amanda Enayati in a special to CNN, “creating helps make people happier, less anxious, more resilient and better equipped to problem-solve in the face of hardship.” You might not be writing a novel or making music, but making decisions about color placement, shapes, designs and patterns, all help you release the stress that weighs you down and instead use your energy to make something beautiful.
