The Best Selling Coloring Books For Adults Out Right Now
When you think of coloring books, you probably think of them as something just for children. Yeah, we all remember the simple coloring books that were designed to teach kids colors (ducks are yellow, pigs are pink…) and focus (which worked better for some kids than others) and to stay inside the lines (ditto). You have probably never considered coloring books as being able to accomplish much more beyond that. But nowadays, coloring books are seeing a resurgence in popularity, and they are not just for little kids anymore. No, a good chunk of coloring books on today’s market are specifically designed for adults.
Adult coloring books are a step above children’s coloring books in a number of ways, as you can see from the list of coloring books we have provided below. Adult coloring books are far more complex than the simple, blocky farmyard designs you may be grabbing for your 3-year-old nephew’s Christmas present. Adult coloring books provide intricate, detailed designs that could hypothetically take a person hours to color in fully. And with that, adult coloring books provide you the perfect opportunity to sit down, clear your head, and take some time for yourself – all while creating something beautiful in the process. While using adult coloring books, many people achieve something close to a meditative state, which studies show is helpful for both your physical and mental health, and for avoiding burning out due to our high-stress modern lifestyles.
