Coloring as an Adult Brings Back Happy Memories of Childhood. Coloring is a simple exercise. Just about all of us spent many hours coloring as children. It was fun. It was easy. It was distracting. The same is true as an adult. Sometimes you are doing some adult coloring you channel a bit of your old self as a child, and you begin to have the unbridled fun and excitement you used to have as a kid.
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.
Research has proven that adult coloring pages are not only a great means of self-therapy when the anxious feelings begin to increase, but it makes a great prelude to conventional therapy because it helps to quickly get the anxiety sufferer in a calmer state of mind that is more open to rational discussion.
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.
