Unbelievable. I have taken up adult colouring. Its like being a kid but better.
I never thought I would do this but a few years ago was diagnosed with a nasty rare and very painful nerve condition. There is no real treatment for it so I have had to develop strategies for coping and distracting myself when in pain. I haven't bought any books, I use free downloads from internet, or copy images from library books and print them myself as in many books I don't like all the designs. And yes, for chronic pain it does help, and its encouraged me to learn various drawing techniques.
A good colouring page and an audio book and Im a happy lady

I got one for my daughter,and we worked on it together, it was great. Now all the kids get those beautiful books as presents I notice, they are back in fashion. Certainly does help escape stress etc.
My OH got himself one with some nice pencils and pens and the kids love setting up their colouring with him at the table. He has been showing them some colouring techniques and it seems to be a real together time for them.
I find it takes my mind off stressful topics - thought it was another fad until I tried it. My color selection tends to clash but as I'm the only one to see it I don't care
Its a rare man to colour tonic . The support group for my medical condition has a few men (women get this rare condition more than men), and not one of the men will try it. Not manly enough I guess.

I started colouring in but found I prefered to draw the pictures myself....it lead to creating a colouring book for horse lovers which I sell at the farmers markets alongside our organic produce. The books are $20 and I give a $1 per sale to the local RDA group. You can check them out on facebook at DarbeyDesigns. Kids love them too.
