So I read an article earlier that says that psychologists claim that adult coloring books can be better than meditation. That coloring in these adult coloring books can help someone with anxiety and depression tremendously.
I’m intrigued. I’ve never really enjoyed coloring. My art has always been more grey, black and white values than color. Perhaps I just don’t understand color as much as I understand neutral values. But I don’t know if I’ll enjoy coloring in an adult coloring book because I’m a destination, not the journey, kind of person. I’m afraid I might be too caught up with the end product rather than the actual act of coloring that’s supposed to be calming…
What do you guys think? Has anyone here who have anxiety or depression ever try these adult coloring books? Is it effective?
I’m tempted to try them out but I don’t want to buy something unnecessarily if it’s not going to be helpful… Let me know your thoughts! Thanks!
