Why should you color?
Thanks to Huffington Post for letting us know exactly why we should be introducing creative play into our personal self-care. Check out what they said below…
“Practicing mindfulness has therapeutic and health benefits. This can help us replace negative thoughts with positive and pleasant ones. Doing therapeutic artwork can help reduce feelings of anxiety and unpleasantness associated with lengthy medical treatments.”
“Coloring utilizes both hemispheres of the brain, right and left.”
“Coloring has intellectual benefits as well. It utilizes areas of the brain that enhance focus and concentration. It also helps with problem solving and organizational skills.”
“These activities can help tremendously with individuals with PTSD, anxiety, and stress issues, as they calm down our amygdala.  This is the part of the brain that controls our fight or flight response, and keeps individuals in a heightened state of worry, panic, and hyper-vigilance, when it is active. Coloring and focusing on this harmless and calming activity can actually turn that response down, and let your brain have some much needed rest and relaxation. This can be an exceptionally productive and welcome outlet for these individuals.”
