Here are my Top 5 Reasons Adults should Color:
- Coloring can help spark creativity.
Coloring allows you to be creative and to “think outside of the box”. For example, when you color a leaf it doesn’t have to be green just because it’s usually green in real life. You can make it pink or orange because it’s your own personal creative decision.
- Coloring can help decrease stress and anxiety.
Anxiety is a common mental condition affecting hundreds of adults. Anxiety can cause many symptoms including: panic attacks, excessive uneasiness and apprehension, thoughts of death or dying, excessive worry, nausea, headaches, chills, fever, insomnia, etc. By using coloring pages for adults, it can help bring about relaxation which promotes stress-relief.
- Coloring is fun.
You get a chance to be as social or as “anti-social” as you want. You can color in solitude or it can be another way to socialize and have an activity to do with other people.
- Coloring is like meditation.
While most people find it difficult to meditate, coloring pages for adults easily help induce a meditative state by keeping you focused on the present moment. When coloring our brain experiences relief when entering a meditative state.
- Coloring gives you the opportunity to unplug from technology.
Sometimes social media can promote unhealthy feelings of jealousy, envy, and loneliness, because you begin comparing yourself to what appears to be other people’s “perfect life”. Powering-down for a period of time provides opportunity to reset and refocus appreciation and gratitude for our own lives.
