How To Combat Stress With Coloring Books

Coloring is not just for children anymore. Actually, it so happens that coloring is beneficial because of its de-stressing qualities. This activity is being used as a way to escape the stress of daily life.

Why are adult coloring books so popular? Because it is proven that coloring is as good for adults in exactly the same way it is good for children. Focusing on coloring a page generates quietness, wellness, and also stimulates the brain areas related to motor skills, the senses and creativity.

Does coloring really de-stress?

In simplest terms, coloring has a de-stressing effect because when we focus on a particular activity, we focus on it and not on our worries. But it also "brings out our imagination and takes us back to our childhood, a period in which we most certainly had a lot less stress." 

According to Jerrys Artarama- Many see coloring as a form of active meditation and if you spend about half an hour simply coloring each day, you will feel better. Coloring gives people a creative outlet as well as a low-stress concentration and exertion with bright colors that can lower anxiety. Coloring also lets the brain free up thoughts to think about people value in life and divert energy into something constructive.

So, the next time you feel anxiety or stress beginning to get to you, grab your coloring book and crayons.

Now to you- 

When was the last time you colored with crayons in a coloring book?
