Coloring is no longer just for children anymore. According to experts, it stimulates certain motor areas of the brain in addition to providing a sense of calm and peace, similar to meditation.
Please welcome Victoria Roder, author of What if a Zebra had Triangles, as she she shares her post about coloring therapy. At the end of the post, check out the prize pack we're giving away.
Coloring Therapy For Adults
By Victoria Roder
You read the title correctly. Many adults are coloring for relaxation, stress release and in some cases, coloring instead of taking costly therapy. A week ago, I heard about this latest trend. Adults are gathering, taking out their coloring books and coloring for stress release. I sure it must be awkward to initially ask your friends to drop by the house to color together.
I was a little concerned what I might find when I researched adult coloring books. But the books are legitimate, more sophisticated than a child's coloring book, mostly filled with geometric patterns. My own coloring book is a companion to my children's picture book, What If A Zebra Had Triangles? Maybe I should have the publisher add the words Adult Coloring Book and I might have a hit on my hands. Recently adult coloring books ranked in the top Ten on the Amazon best-sellers list.
Adults claim when they color, it allows their mind to relax and go blank. Coloring allows you to let go of the worry of bills, chores and work. The people in Wisconsin claim they get the same result from getting together and drinking. Coloring is a healthier choice. What's your choice of relaxation? Are you ready to try adult coloring therapy?
