Despite the fact that coloring does offer a slew of mental benefits, it`s not the same as therapy. Working through coloring pages definitely has therapeutic potential to reduce anxiety, create focus or bring about more mindfulness, according to the industry researchers. Based on groundbreaking research in 2005 it was proven that anxiety levels dropped when subjects colored complex coloring pages for adults or mandalas, which are round frames with geometric patterns inside.
Among the other benefits of adult coloring in books, they also claim to enjoy recapturing the nostalgia of childhood by engaging in an activity usually reserved for children. It takes people back to a simpler time, and can also be a way for parents to connect and bond with their children by sitting down to color in with them. Of course, many parents have been happily coloring in kids’ books for years, but now they have choices that are not limited to Dora the Explorer or SpongeBob SquarePants
In summary, coloring for adults appears to be a growing past-time that allows adults to relax and unplug from the stress in their lives, by engaging in a hands-on activity that involves minimal commitment and maximum nostalgia.
Just like guided meditation, coloring allows us to switch off our brains from other thoughts and worries and focus only on the moment, helping to alleviate stress and anxiety. It can be particularly effective for people who aren`t comfortable with more creatively expressive forms of art, like painting or writing. The participants who are more guarded find a lot of tranquility in coloring images. It feels safer for them and it creates containment around the coloring process.
Although most preschoolers only like to color for fun, some might show a special aptitude for art. Preschool is not too early for a child to show a particular liking for a discipline such as art. If your child seems to particularly enjoy coloring consider encouraging their interest with some art classes. Coloring a couple of superheros could be the beginning of a great career as an artist. However, even if your children have no real interest in art they will probably enjoy their time coloring superheros. For parents of preschoolers just about anything that holds their child`s attention is a worthwhile activity.
