Coloring can be beneficial for de-stressing power; it is a way to relax, disconnect, and be creative at the same time. Since adult coloring has been recognized as a trend in the last few years, coloring books of multiple designs have become available, including geometric shapes, psychadelic patterns, hypnotic mandalas and more.
