In your opinion, coloring is much more than an art. First of all, it allows to relax, to decompress, for example after a day of work. This activity allows you to find yourself alone in front of yourself, to take a moment for yourself and to be in one’s own bubble, a world, that of your imagination.
Unlike isolation, coloring is a way to share a moment of complicity with his family but also with his friends. This leisure adapted to all allows to stronger ties.
Finally, coloring has allowed many people to overcome their disease, their addiction but also to keep the morale up, to clear their mind and forget for a moment the disease.
