I was picking out some coloring books for my friends children when she informed me that she would like to get a couple of books too. This is a 30 something year old woman. She then began picking out colored pencils as well with a gleam in her eye like a kid in a candy store. She couldnt wait to get home and start coloring in her new books. She picked Barbie Doll, princess type books and methodically chose what colors she would use for the first picture.
So why the fascination, and how can they help you? In the most basic sense, the act of applying colored media to intricate line drawings is a benefit to relaxation and stress reduction. You are able to put the outside world aside for the moment and focus on the art of coloring singularly. Studies have shows that anxiety levels dropped in adults that colored. They did note that simple doodling had no affect on anxiety. The focus on coloring and switching off the brain allows that blocking of anxiety in the moment. Coloring does not have a need for complicated thought processes and like listening to calming music, you are able to get within yourself, isolated from external anxiety, commotion, and distractions.
