Coloring for Relaxation – It’s Not Just for Kids

I first became aware of the adult coloring phenomenon five years ago when presenting a workshop at a senior center on how creating art can reduce nervous tension and aid in emotional expression. Much to my delight, one of the workshop participants shared how she had recently joined an online adult coloring group made up of people she knew – the group had close to one-hundred members. Group members were engaging in coloring for relaxation and stress relief. As it turned out, more than half of the other 26 workshop participants also did weekly coloring activities as a way to - as one workshop participant put it - “refresh my brain by giving it a mini vacation every day.”
