Why adults should color frequently.

I remember a few months ago I was totally stressed out by this take home final for a subject I had trouble with in the past. I was working on completing my degree at this time, and just felt completely overwhelmed.

You know how when you are given a task to complete within a certain time period (in this case, a week), it seems to dominate your entire mind. You just keep going over in your mind -- I have this task to complete, there's so much left to be done, how am I going to do it all?

Then I decided to color -- I printed out some pages from a free internet coloring site. I took out some colored pencils I had found the week before, and just started coloring. It felt so mind like emptied. I felt that blissed out way a four year old feels. You should try it!
