Most Popular Free Printable Coloring Pages For Grown-Ups
If you are looking for a way to find your inner zen while exploring your own artistic side, look no further. I have made a collection of the most popular free printable coloring pages for grown-ups on the web at present.
Although adult coloring books have been current for several years, in recent months due to circumstances that have befallen us (the coronavirus pandemic) they’ve become even more attractive.
Psychologists claim that coloring is a great alternative to meditation, relaxation, dealing with stress, anxiety, and depression, and adult coloring pages are best for that. Based on studies from the early 20th century, coloring creates a relaxing effect, calmness and stimulates the brain zones associated with motor skills, senses, and creativity. Moreover, a study conducted by New Zealand scientists in 2017 supports this thesis.
The adult coloring books can be purchased at many stores and bookstores, but let’s face it, the price, I think is really unjustified.
On the Internet, on the other hand, you can find really fabulous free patterns of coloring pages for adults. Categories such as mandala, art, women’s portrait, nature, animals, owls, butterflies, home, and quotes stand out as the most popular and effective among them. So, I’ve decided to make a gallery of the very best free printable coloring pages online at the moment.
Find the one you are interested in, click on the image (it will automatically open in the new tab), and download your favorite patterns.
Print them, play your favorite music, relax, and enjoy coloring.
So, let’s make a conclusion: What began as strange leisure has become a widespread trend across the globe, as evidenced by the number of coloring books for adults that have made their way to the tops of international bestsellers. This trend may be a reminder of childhood, but in reality, it may be that the therapeutic qualities of these books give a positive outcome.
Psychiatrist Carl Jung introduced into Western thought an Eastern mandala motif whose appearance he believed to reflect the inner processes of the human soul, and he himself drew and created motifs of the mandalas, believing that their form was a reflection of his mental events.
So, if you are playing a parent or “babysitting” an anxious and disobedient adult who needs a soothing pastime, take a few felt pens and place them in a cozy place and give them a coloring book. It has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and cause child happiness in a grown-up!
