Adult coloring books may be a new trend, but for good reason. They are an excellent way to decompress and focus on something other than your worries or stressors. In reality, it's a great mindfulness practice. You are completely in the moment when you're coloring in those intricate little patterns.
As an aside, I recently sat next to a CEO of a large company on a flight -- about twenty minutes in she reached into her carry-on and pulled out a coloring book and markers. By the time the plane reached San Diego she was completely relaxed and told me she keeps them in her desk drawer, too.
Don't believe me? Check out the science behind coloring... you'll be amazed at the benefits!
