Adult Coloring Pages Relieve Anxiety. Anxiety is a common mental condition that affects millions of adults. It includes panic attacks, excessive worry and thoughts of death and dying. Anxiety presents itself with nausea, chills, fever, insomnia and sky-high stress at the thought of activities that other many people might consider “normal” activities.
Reduce stress and anxiety. Coloring has the ability to relax the fear center of your brain, the amygdala. It induces the same state as meditating by reducing the thoughts of a restless mind. This generates mindfulness and quietness, which allows your mind to get some rest after a long day at work.
Mandala’s are still one of the most popular types of adult coloring pages. The intricate design takes concentration to color. The patterns give options to express creativity.Using mandalas for adult coloring can even help you meditate or find a higher state of consciousness. The aesthetically pleasing designs draw a person into the pattern. This can help them form a semi-hypnotic state while coloring where people can sometimes get a better understanding of themselves and their place in the world.
That is basically what mediation is all about. Doing nothing, relaxing and defocusing while stopping the chatter of a restless mind. Many people who find it difficult to “tune out” the world while meditating seem to find adult coloring pages and coloring books to a far simpler way to set the same basic effect.
