Television and movies are supposed to help us escape our stressful realities, yet most of the time, they leave us gnawing our fingers off.
We spend about one to three hours hoping our favorite characters don’t die. Then we spend one week to several years anxiously anticipating the return, dissecting what will happen next and vigilantly avoiding major spoilers in the process. That’s some stress relief!
To help soothe your anxieties, consider a little art therapy. These fandom-themed adult coloring books will keep your mind busy as you wait for the next season or sequel. Some are even for the fandoms that still haven’t come to terms with the end of a series.
