Why Are Adult Coloring Books So Popular?

The coloring books for adults have intricate patterns to paint. Some say they are psychologically based patterns to alleviate tension. Actually, it is the coloring we all do that creates us to unwind and for that reason these books are extremely popular.

In the past, I remember catching my wife coloring away with a quiet yet enthusiastic demeanor while i came home from work early around 4:00pm. She was sitting with our three children (all under 8 years at that time and all quietly coloring) in our den. I went up to give her my usual hello kiss and didn’t get her attention without delay as she was totally absorbed coloring.

“Oh you’re home early?” she said continuing to color.

“Yeah, what’s going on?”

“We’re just keeping away from trouble… , kids want to color… ” Some think much about her enthusiasm back then, and was happy she was creating a break.

Can remember the Wham-O’s Hula Hoop rage where millions found plenty of enjoyment and fun with your a simple hoop. But coloring differs? It’s more individualistic and peaceful to yourself yet others around you. Adult coloring might be a rage for adults these days.



I researched adult coloring and study a corner and forth movement in the crayon, colored pencil, or marker does in fact have a very calming effect since it requires the use of each party of the brain causing neurons to boost their connections between both sides while shutting down the frontal lobe which controls organization. So, a sense balance occurs after having a stressful day. Coloring gives relief on the daily demands of attention focusing in the office, stress of everyday life, very real problem, intense competition, intense play, intense everything sometimes.

Johanna Basford’s, “Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book” has started the adult coloring book rage this season. This book might be a collector’s item someday – just like an original hula hoop.

Basford, a Scottish commercial artist doing a lots of intricate monochrome patterns for wallpapers, beer bottles, wine labels was originally required to perform children’s coloring book but she convinced her British publisher to get her do a grown-up coloring book since her clients enjoyed coloring in her patterns. Well, everyone knows after 2 million copies were sold, Johanna found a whole new niche for adults to savor worldwide.
