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.
Adult coloring can do that for you. We talked about how coloring is a “whole brain” process earlier. It is an easy activity, it doesn’t take mental gymnastics to accomplish some cool coloring as an adult, but it does take your full concentration.
One thing you can do in times like that is adult coloring. Coloring empties your mind. While you are spending all your focus on the minute details of coloring your mind begins to wander a bit. Similar to mindfulness and meditation, this freedom for your mind allows you to make connections where before there were none. Sometimes this means personal growth and sometimes this means some nice creative ideas where there were none before.
Children get simple joy from simple things. It is one of the great things about being a kid. Being able to get that simple joy in completing a simple task like coloring, even if only for a moment, is well worth the effort.
