How Coloring Can Impact Your Mental Health

By now, it seems like the craze of adult coloring is everywhere. Supplies can be found in most stores, online forums allow artists to post their creations while commenting on the work of others, and local groups meet in person to work together.

Despite its widespread presence, many people remain unsure whether or not adult coloring is right for them. If that sounds like you, consider these reasons why now is the time to jump on the bandwagon.
