Gone are the days when coloring books were meant only for children. The excitement of running through a new coloring book, the bright crayons or pencil colors can still be seen in some of us.
Colors do have healing powers, which is why we have something called Color therapy too. The concept of adult coloring books somewhat falls on the same lines.
Today in this video, we will explore the benefits of these coloring books and find out how they can impact our mindset.
1 Reduces stress
Art is therapeutic in many ways. Having certain patterns or designs to color or paint can give your mind an experience equivalent to meditation. It is a kind of semi-hypnosis that leads you to sit peacefully for hours.
2 Relieves Anxiety
Coloring books help overcome anxiety to an extent. It is an effective method to calm your senses and attain a state of mindfulness.
3 Brain workout
We all know there are 2 sides of a human brain - creative and logical. So while we are at it, a simple coloring activity can exercise both sides of our brain. The right side chooses the colors while the left helps us focus on finishing it.
4 Exhibits creativity
You never know how creative you can get unless you try. Given that coloring books are a fun way to kill time besides maintaining our mental health, take out your inner child and paint the world red.
Multi-tasking is an adult way of life, isn't it? At home or at work, we have our heads dug in multiple tasks at a time. None of them has our undivided attention resulting in inefficiency and burnout. Adult coloring books help you focus in that very moment, making you fully aware of what you are into.
