Uses of Adult Coloring Books

Task: Encourage the use of Adult Coloring Books

Issue: Elderly are vulnerable to stress from various causes, but anxiety and old age is not a good combination. Old age should be a period where you are no longer stressed out.


When we are younger, we usually make use of anxiety as a tool to motivate us. The adrenaline rush that we feel seems to be invigorating, making our accomplishments much more valuable. When we reach old age, anxiety seems to show its real colour.

Old age can be really stressful. People tend to worry a lot in this age. If you get to worry a lot, your body will respond to this kind of thinking. The body tends to palpitate, sweat profusely, and breathing becomes difficult in reaction to your stress and excessive worrying. These are the natural responses of your body to your mind's issues.

Do you worry about old age? You need not be if you are prepared for it. As we grow older, there will be physical changes. Wrinkles start to appear, hair turning gray, eyesight fails and there will be limited physical performance. We will be less active physically.


You can make yourself all good by being active and following proven things which keep you away from anxiety. For example, Coloring books are no longer just for the kids. In fact, adult coloring books are all the rage right now. Researchers and art therapists alike have touted the calming benefits for over a decade.

Adult coloring books have, over the past two years, become one of the biggest sales phenomena to hit the modern publishing industry says Xnx Adult Store. Approximately 12 million adult coloring books sold in the US in 2015, boosting the sale of adult nonfiction by 6.6 percent and causing a global colored-pencil shortage.

Many attribute the trend to the purported therapeutic benefits of coloring—which, it turns out, are not just for children. The promotional copy on many of the books claims that the activity can reduce stress and promote mindfulness.
