“If you want an interesting party sometime,
combine cocktails and
a fresh box of crayons for everyone.”
It’s good old-fashioned child’s play. Filling in the spaces with color. The newest and best relaxation method, and stress-reducer that is soaring in popularity. It’s something that most people haven’t done since elementary school — coloring.
The draw, so to speak, is in the calming effect of picking up a crayon, marker or colored pencil and filling in the white spaces.
Lately, coloring is so popular in France, coloring books are out selling cookbooks. Amazon lists over 2,200 coloring books for sale. In fact, producers of coloring books for adults can’t seem to print them fast enough. One of the top ten best sellers on Amazon listed is Johanna Basford’s “Secret Garden” series.
What a great way to relax, be creative and engage in activity that allows you to free your mind from the stresses of the day. Call this new fad anything you want, but I’d say this new stress buster is colored with success.
