Alzheimer‵s/Dementia: There are few diseases I can think of worse than this one. Slowly losing your mind while you are still around. It is devastating. Adult coloring is not going to magically reverse these problems. But it has shown to be one of the effective therapies that can be used.
What this means is that when you are coloring other things drop away. Thoughts of bills, car payments, your fight with the spouse, the tough assignment at work. All of these worries drop away for your short coloring “time out”. It can be quite restful and relaxing.
Builds concentration and focus. When children are asked to color between the lines, they may need to concentrate more than they would with freeform drawing. Because they are contained to a specific area, they will need to stay focussed on the space they have to fill and be more precise in their application.
Cancer: Coloring as an adult is not going to directly affect cancer. How could it? However one of the big problems with cancer treatments is that they make you extremely ill, distressed and depressed. Studies in art therapy have shown that adult coloring has a significant positive impact on patient morale, health and side effect issues from standard cancer treatments.
