The Fun Edit: Adult Coloring Books
If you’re 18 or older and seeking tranquility on the cheap, look no further than adult coloring books. We often forget that many of us spent hours coloring in preschool, whether by choice or because a teacher told us too. The psychology of coloring books is a little murkier, but I came across this great article in Psychology Today all about the potential positive effects. Coloring books are a nice break from the stressful stimuli adults deal with, from work issues all the way to divorce court. If nothing else, a change of pace is usually good for the soul. So grab some markers and unleash your inner artist with this issue of the fun edit.

This series has a lot of great titles- Spongebob (my personal favorite), Optical Illusions, Marvel, Star Wars, and so many more. I've had trouble finding Spongebob in stock near me at the moment though.
