By now you've almost certainly heard of the adult coloring book trend. More and more adults are setting aside time in their busy days to destress by coloring! The intricate designs of mandalas, detailed landscapes, florals, and more require time and concentration to color, but this focus opens the door to creativity, and relaxing creativity at that!

Quarto Publishing Group has released a Mindfulness Coloring Book for adults. On the back cover they explain that "coloring is the new creative therapy and a perfect activity for encouraging calm reflection and self-awareness." Adults who sit down with an array of coloring supplies and a book must choose what colors to apply, and where on the page to apply them. These creative choices as well as the action of coloring provide a charming series of concentrated and relaxed motions that stimulate the mind while also allowing it to wander. "Revitalizing" is a word that Quarto uses to describe adult coloring, and I couldn't agree more!

As an amateur artist who loves to draw, I'm not surprised at all to see the coloring book trend take off! Drawing and coloring in my sketches is extremely relaxing and peaceful, but when I encourage folks to do the same, a common response is "but I can't draw." While the idea of drawing can be intimidating, coloring is totally accessible to everyone. Regardless of any coloring "skill level", a person can happily apply crayon, colored pencil, marker, or pen to the coloring book pages. By now we know how to color inside the lines!

The Mindfulness Coloring Book is a particularly exciting collection because the designs within it are so diverse. One page may have mandalas while another page shows a gorgeous landscape. Portraits, abstract patterns, cartoons, and more fill this book. Not only will you find a variety of content inside, but the level of detail from image to image also varies. Ranging from bold lines and low levels of detail to very fine lines and intricate detail, the coloring book pages suit any mood! Sit down for thirty minutes and finish an easy page, or color in an elaborate image over the course of a few days. If you decide to share the pages in this book with friends or family, they too can select an image suited to them.

No matter what your artistic experience may be, give adult coloring books a try. Start with the Mindfulness Coloring Book, select an image based on the aesthetic as well as the level of detail, and let this creative therapy soothe you in a comforting break from the busy day-to-day.
