Some take-up coloring merely to pass the time, others as a way to sooth anxiety, or as a cure for insomnia. After all, coloring relaxes the mind and gives one time to be alone with one’s thoughts.
When I went looking if there was an adult coloring group on Facebook, it turned out there are several, each with thousands of members, showing their work.
