Are you into adult coloring books? My sister has been using coloring books as relaxation therapy for years now – and lately the trend has taken the world by storm. Who knew that coloring with crayons & markers in coloring books for relaxation would become as popular as meditating to create a stress-free zen?
From hip hop coloring books featuring Tupac and Biggie to more pop art inspired coloring options featuring Taylor Swift, coloring for adults has gone mainstream. Although coloring is a great way to alleviate stress, you may not have a coloring book and crayons available at all times. That’s when these awesome adult coloring apps save the day.
