When I was a kid, I used to beg my dad for coloring books and crayons. No joke, every time we went to the grocery store, I would shamelessly ask for a new pack of crayons. Now that I'm all grown up, I still love coloring just as much as when I was seven years old. Take it from me: this isn't just for kids anymore! Coloring is actually a great therapeutic exercise for adults--and so easy to do! There are plenty of websites out there where you can get coloring pages for adults, and even some sites where you can color them right on your computer.

You probably know that coloring books are a great way to relax, but did you know there are many other ways they can help you? The following are just a few of the benefits of coloring for adults:

- Coloring relieves stress. If your job feels overwhelming or if life has been tough lately, picking up a colored pencil may be just what you need to calm down enough to get through the day without getting fired (or divorced).
- Coloring can calm even the most anxious child down! And while we're on the subject of children...
