Adult Coloring Books
Did You Know?
Psychologists actually use coloring as a relaxation technique, and have been doing so for decades. How does coloring help to reduce stress? Coloring takes focus and concentration (just like meditation). You have to pay close attention to what you are doing. And, when you’re focusing on your coloring, you’re not thinking about all of your problems and worries.
These coloring books are designed with adults in mind, and they offer a “grown up” challenge for colorists. By compelling adults to focus on what they are doing, these coloring books help to push out the stressors that plague us. Thanks to these coloring books, you can now relax and have a few worry-free minutes of pure coloring bliss!
When you color, you use both left and right sides of the brain. The right side of the brain is engaged to choose the colors, and the left side is engaged to control your motions and coordination as you color. By engaging both sides of the brain, you reduce the activity of the amygdala, the part of your brain that is responsible for your emotions and feelings of stress.
