    Default 7 Things That Happen When Adults Start Coloring

    7 Things That Happen When Adults Start Coloring



    If you like coloring, now you have 7 more reasons to do it!

    1. You improve your concentration. Living in anxiety isn't easy. Our concentration is often incredibly split between work, home, electronics etc. When you sit down and focus on one thing, like coloring, it improves your ability to focus elsewhere.

    2. You unfold your inner creativity. Coloring inside or outside the lines does wonders to unleash your inner creativity. Adults who color are more likely to approach problems more creatively and find better and faster solutions.

    3. Your brain treats it like meditation. When you color, your brain has the same reaction as when you meditate.

    4. You can chill out anywhere any time. Bored on a flight? Color. Feeling stressed? Color. Nothing to do at home? Color. It's wonderful. You can do it almost wherever and whenever you want.

    5. You improve your motor skills. All that coloring inside of the lines improves hand-eye coordination and your overall motor skills.

    6. You release negative thoughts. When you color, you focus on what you're doing and you just sort of naturally release a lot of tension and accumulated negative thinking.

    7. You'll decrease your anxiety and stress. Coloring is the ultimate anxiety and stress relief. Spending a half hour coloring instantly helps you released from this bad duo.

    8. If you don't use the color black enough or white too much you are a racist.

    I'm waiting for the next big craze/trend:

    Adult businessmen, wearing ties, and commuting to work on Big Wheels.

    It's enviornmentally sound, plus a great way to stay fit.

    Not gonna lie...my wife bought me one of these coloring books for Christmas on a whim. I started coloring one of the pictures on a whim....it was beyond relaxing. I'm not sure if a different part of my brain took over but I could literally feel my whole world slow down. Of course my blood boiled when the blue pencil crayon kept breaking but otherwise...a good experience.

    I have some coloring books. My granny had it right. They didn't have "adult" coloring books back in the 90's but when she was in assisted living she would get whatever was closest and spend her afternoons coloring.....my aunt kind of made fun of it...but who's laughing now?

    Told my brothers to give some to my mom for Christmas and she loves hers

    I also do jigsaws online....it really calms the mind.
