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.
Cancer: Coloring as an adult is not going to directly affect cancer. How could it? However one of the big problems with cancer treatments is that they make you extremely ill, distressed and depressed. Studies in art therapy have shown that adult coloring has a significant positive impact on patient morale, health and side effect issues from standard cancer treatments.
The significant benefits of coloring are now being realised for all age groups as it takes its place alongside yoga and meditation as an enjoyable way of improving mental and physical well-being.
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.
