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.
Mandala’s are still one of the most popular types of adult coloring pages. The intricate design takes concentration to color. The patterns give options to express creativity.Using mandalas for adult coloring can even help you meditate or find a higher state of consciousness. The aesthetically pleasing designs draw a person into the pattern. This can help them form a semi-hypnotic state while coloring where people can sometimes get a better understanding of themselves and their place in the world.
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.
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.
