Improve focus. Coloring requires you to focus, but not so much that it’s stressful. It opens up your frontal lobe, which controls organizing and problem solving, and allows you to put everything else aside and live in the moment, generating focus.
The choices involved with focused coloring keep you “exercising” important synapses. But perhaps more importantly, the smell of crayons and the act of coloring can spark pleasant childhood memories.
Coloring Pages Can be a Form of Meditation. As an adult, coloring can actually help you to find a higher state of consciousness. The aesthetically pleasing designs draw a draws you into the pattern. Subtly soothing away anxiety, stress, depression and anger.
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.
