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.
This complex patterns of the art you are coloring can actually induce you into a semi-hypnotic state while coloring. This can, in turn, give you a better understanding of yourself and your place in the world.
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.
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.
