Did you know there is a day set aside to highlight the humble coloring book?
It’s true! August 2nd is National Coloring Book Day!
Every kid on the block knows that coloring is fun, but more and more adults are rediscovering this childhood pastime.
It turns out that coloring can be relaxing, regardless of age.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, there are three primary reasons that coloring relaxes people.
1. Attention moves outside ourselves
- Meditation helps us focus on the present moment, rather than future anxieties. Focusing on a coloring book does the same.
2. It relaxes the brain
- Focusing on a clear task pulls awareness away from worries and insecurities, allowing the brain to relax.
3. Low stakes
- You can’t screw up coloring. Inside or outside the lines, rainbow or black and white, it can be whatever you want, with no judgment. This allows it to be worry-free and enjoyable.
With all these benefits, it's easy to see why adult coloring is exploding in popularity. We can all use a little extra relaxation in our lives.

Your brain will thank you!
