The Return of the Coloring Book: A new way adults unwind on weekends

Before you drop everything and head to the bar for the weekend, you should stop and explore new stress relieving and bonding alternatives! The new craze that’s sweeping the nation? Adult Coloring Books.

That’s right. Your favorite past time as a child has revamped and taken new form as adults and millennials explore the therapeutic and creative way to wind down after a hectic day or workweek.

More advanced than your normal $1 coloring books you give to your nieces and nephews, but not sure where to start your adult coloring book search?

This fall, Korean author, curator, and artist, Daria Song will be releasing two new coloring books that will surely whisk you away from your perils of your too real work days.

The Time Garden: A Magical Journey and Coloring Book, released 9/1,  takes readers through a dream-like escapade alongside a little girl whose father brings home an antique cuckoo clock from a faraway land.

The adventure continues with the October 13th release of the sequel The Time Chamber.

Whether on a road trip with your boos, or sitting around the table having cocktails with friends, this renewed therapeutic pastime is sure to satisfy your craving for a meditative experience.

With coloring clubs popping up all over the country, why not take the initiative to start a group with your friends?

If you’re looking to relax and de-stress, grab a box of your favorite coloring utensils, some headphones and maybe even your favorite glass of wine and escape into your harmonious mind.
