For those who are less inclined to create art as therapy and wanting a simpler solution, they are using coloring books to enrich their lives. Physicians and therapists prescribe coloring for many different illnesses including depression, PTSD, dementia, and even cancer patients to reduce their pain and stress levels in treatment. Everyday, people are also looking for natural and joyful ways to lessen pain and reduce the tension in their lives. By coloring, the mind focuses. This, in turn, allows the brain to replace mind chatter and negative thoughts with positive thoughts. There are many benefits to having a coloring book routine, which include: • Achieve a meditation state of mind. The alpha brain waves are present when the mind is sleeping or in a deep zen-like meditative state. When a person is coloring, the brain can get into this soothing, restorative mode. • Assuage stress, worry, and fears. This happens in the amygdala portion of the brain where emotions and motivation are integrated. The amygdala gets calmed during the coloring process. • Improve fine motor skills. This happens through the repetition of coloring and focusing on a task using your hands to stay within a finite area. • Increase creativity. Coloring unlocks the right side of the brain and keeps it stimulated, allowing for more creative thoughts and solutions. This also leads to increased productivity. • Relax, gain clarity, and focus. People can also reduce their blood pressure while coloring.
