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.
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.
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.
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.
