Benefits of Coloring
But how does it actually work?
According to Psychologist, Dr. Scott M. Bea from Cleveland Clinic, coloring relaxes adults based on 3 principles:
- Coloring brings you into the present moment.
- It gives your brain a chance to relax.
- It is enjoyable and pressure-free.
Most of us move through life juggling a constant stream of thoughts including our regrets from the past and our anxieties about the future. Coloring is a simple and relaxing way to turn off that stream of thoughts and allow our minds and bodies to truly relax.
