Using adult coloring pages as anxiety therapy is one method of calming and soothing the persistent surge of negative emotions and swirling anxiety. For the same reasons that anxiety can act as a gateway to mindful thinking and meditation, coloring therapy can soothe and reduce anxiety by giving you something simple, yet requiring complete focus to work on. The patterns and colors are hypnotic and simply make you feel better, more powerful and more in charge of yourself.
Coloring can be a highly effective way of fostering physical and psychological wellbeing in children. While it‵s a relaxing form of self-expression that stimulates creativity it also promotes a range of benefits to nurture well-being.
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.
Adult Coloring Pages Give You an Adult “Time Out”. When we were kids a “time out” was a bad thing. Time doing nothing. Five minutes of forced inactivity seemed like hard prison time in solitary confinement. These days the ideas of a “time out” from adult life seems like quite a pleasurable experience.
