Coloring Books for Adults: Really? YES, Really...


“Really? What other gimmick will they come up with next?” Well, little did I know then that I was about to become a big fan of the whole idea..not to mention a coloring book addict!

As soon as I decided to set aside my “I’m too old for this—and I don’t want to look ridiculous” attitude, I remembered a transformational psychology class I had in school which required that I choose my favorite activity from when I was a child, practice it every day for a week, and then report on it.Which activity did I choose? Coloring. I still remember the wonderful feelings I had from reconnecting with my childhood that way: the sense of freedom, of childlike innocence, of pure and simple joy. And these are just some of the many


benefi ts you might notice when you start coloring books on a regular basis. This activity is not only fun; it helps you get in touch with your artistic, creative side, and you might fi nd yourself using that creativity at home and at work.

I didn’t think I had time for this. Now I make time for this because of its countless benefi ts. I have also recommended it to friends, family and several of my hypnotherapy/life coaching clients, with great success. Coloring therapy is often used with children and young adults by many therapists and health centers, and it’s gradually becoming more common as part of the treatment of certain healthcare issues in adults, such as addiction recovery symptoms. Below are a few of my favorite books. In short, coloring books for adults are no joke! Give it a try.
