The Benefits of Colouring

November 14, 2016 staplesadvantagecanada

The rise in popularity of adult colouring books over the last few years has been hard to ignore. They entered the scene and exploded with great applause from everyone using them and gained approval from the likes of therapists, mental health advocates (1), and research professionals from many different industries (2). Health benefits ranging from reduced stress and anxiety to an increase in calmness, creativity and nostalgia from a simpler time have all been reasons people are picking up the pencil crayons and markers and setting time aside for this therapeutic activity.
