WICHITA FALLS, TX -

Something we did as children is making a comeback for adults.

"There's a reason why kids like to color, and we kind of lose that as we grow up," Brandon Arnold a Licensed Professional Counselor said.

Adult coloring books are popping up everywhere and they're good for people who suffer from stress or anxiety. 

"They're very intricate, very detailed. Many times they'll have certain patterns that can really help you focus, really help you get in a different kind of zone," Arnold said. 

Wichita Falls resident Adriana Madrigal stumbled upon them while shopping at a craft store. 

"I think as a kid, it was more fun, but now that I'm an adult it's just like it calms me down and just puts me in a good mood," Madrigal said.

These coloring books have intricate designs which make them a lot different from children's coloring books.   

"It's also a higher level of creativity than a normal kid's coloring book," Arnold said.  

These books work for any adult looking to stimulate their creativity and be productive.  

"I would recommend them for anybody. A lot of people that don't necessarily have those issues, just think they're a lot of fun," Arnold said. 

You can pick one up at your local craft store.
