By On Apr 18, 2018 Coloring for Adults
It is no wonder that, coloring for adults app, as well as coloring for adults printables online and offline are so popular these days. Such creative activities are almost like Nirvana for adults’ souls. Even more popular are coloring pages with Mandalas for adults.
Despite the fact that coloring and art therapy arent quite the same thing, coloring does offer a slew of mental benefits. "Coloring definitely has therapeutic potential to reduce anxiety, create focus or bring [about] more mindfulness," says Berberian. Groundbreaking research in 2005 proved anxiety levels dropped when subjects colored mandalas, which are round frames with geometric patterns inside. Simply doodling, though, had no effect in reducing the other subjects stress levels.
Just like meditation, coloring also allows us to switch off our brains from other thoughts and focus only on the moment, helping to alleviate free-floating anxiety. It can be particularly effective for people who arent comfortable with more creatively expressive forms of art, says Berberian, "My experience has been that those participants who are more guarded find a lot of tranquility in coloring an image. It feels safer and it creates containment around their process," she adds.
