Improve sleep. We know we get a better night’s sleep when avoiding engaging with electronics at night, because exposure to the emitted light reduces your levels of the sleep hormone, melatonin. Coloring is a relaxing and electronic-free bedtime ritual that won’t disturb your level of melatonin.
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.
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.
Adult Coloring Pages Exercises the Entire Brain. Coloring is not a “left” brain or “right” brain thing. It is a task that exercises both hemispheres, something akin to a “full brain” workout. When adults color they utilize the “creative side” of their brain to pick artistic color choices and provide aesthetic balance to the art. But they also use their frontal lobe for concentration, focus organizational ideas.
