Page 4C COMMUNITY Hays Free Press January 25, 2017 + Creative Coloring for Adults Join the Kyle Public Library on the first Wednesday of each month from 6:30 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. for Creative Coloring for Adults. Colored pencils, markers, and coloring pages are provided free of charge. Coloring isn't just for kids anymore; the trend of intricate and beautifully detailed designs intended for adult use makes the joy of coloring books available to a broader audience. Coloring is also good for your mental and physical health, as studies show it can help reduce anxiety and stress, create focus, and bring about more mindfulness. And with everyone from researchers at Johns Hopkins University to the editors of Yoga Journal suggesting coloring as an alternative to meditation, this fun, free activity is the perfect way to unwind and regenerate.
