Coloring Books For Grown-Ups Is The New Fad

 If you grew up in the 1950s, you surely remember how much fun it was to get a new box of Crayola crayons and to color for hours in your favorite coloring books. Decades later, coloring books got a bad rap as parents were trying to encourage their children to "express" their inner artist and color outside the lines. Well it seems these same parents are now discovering the relaxation benefits of coloring within the lines again.  A whole crop of coloring books for adults is now being marketed to help you reduce stress. With names like "Color Me Calm : 100 Coloring Templates for Meditation and Relaxation" or  "Posh Coloring Book: Art Therapy for Fun & Relaxation", coloring is back in style again.
