Coloring for Seniors - Really?

coloring book

How many of you remember when you were a child and loved coloring in a coloring book?  I remember.  I spent a bunch of time coloring as a child and loved it.

Well, would you believe coloring has become a past-time for adults - especially senior citizens.  It has been found that it is a great stress reliever and therapy for those recovering from many illnesses.

If you are stressed out or need some therapy for your hands or fingers, give this a try.  I think I may have to do it myself.
