Stress Awareness Month
The Benefits of Coloring for Stress Relief
A surprising trend in relaxation products has been the explosion of colouring books for adults.

Colouring enthusiasts claim that colouring makes them feel calmer, mentally clearer, happier, and more relaxed.
When engaged in their hobby, “colourists,” as they call themselves, say that their worries temporarily fade away.

A large study on knitters, for example, found that 80% of those with depression felt happier when they knitted.
