How many of you do adult coloring books?

What got you into doing it? Do you enjoy it? Does it relax you? I am asking these questions because I am trying to find a way to relax myself from all the stress so thought maybe I would try it and see what I think of it. For those of you that enjoy it continue having fun.

Many people do enjoy it. We let our grandchildren use our one and only adult coloring book when they come to visit. It was a gift to my husband when he had neck surgery, but neither of us have the time for it.

Not really. I am sure they are fun and very therapeutic. But I'm busy doing other stuff.

@cmoneyspinner Do you feel good doing the stuff you are doing and does that help you feel calm?

@Hannihar - Yes! Yes, I am. I would be a wreck if I weren't doing anything. But if I can find something productive to do ~ which is my form of therapy ~ it makes me feel good and it keeps me balanced or calm.

@cmoneyspinner That is what I am looking for is something to calm me down so whatever is going on around me will not affect me.

My husband has one he has done some of, and I have one. They are ok and can be calming, but for me I prefer painting rocks instead and then go out hiding them as I have time.

@KrauseHome I like the rock idea. I have not started the coloring book that I down loaded yet so cannot say if I like it or not.

I love to draw and to color and do some art projects. I have been putting everything off doing my online work but this Sunday I will begin to enjoy the art again. I need it for my soul. I have a table set up and my porch and I am ready to go.

I started doing Adult coloring books when my daughter gave me one as a birthday gift. It is relaxing. I bought the thin coloring markers and gel pens to give me variety. It does take time to finish a picture, but it is fun. I don't do it every day. I do like to take it on trips. I am retired, so I have plenty of time to work on it.

@Razzles That is great and thank you so much for sharing that with us.

I bought one, but I do not really enjoy it. I LOVE owning lots of coloring pencils, and I sometimes like to draw, but I seldom want to sit still and color. Crochet would be more relaxing for me. I own an adult coloring book, and completed one page.

@GardenGerty Maybe one day you will want to complete another page. Everyone has to find whatever makes them relax.

@ThreeTeddies Did you ask them why they like it so much?

My sister has, and she gave me an adult coloring book, but I never used it. I can see how it would reduce stress for many due to the coloring distracting a person from worries they may have.
