Why Colouring Books Is Also Good For Adults.

If you think that colouring books are only meant for children, then you’d be suprised!In fact, adult coloring books are all the rage right now. Researchers and art therapists alike have touted the calming benefits of colouring books. At Mr D.I.Y, we have a whole range of colouring books that can be enjoyed by both kids and adults alike. We think that it’s time you pick up your colouring pencils and start expressing your thoughts through colours, and here’s why:



1. It’s Beneficial For Your Mental Health




Colouring definitely has therapeutic potential to reduce anxiety, create focus or bring about more mindfulness. Just like meditation, colouring also allows us to switch off our brains from other thoughts and focus only on the moment, helping to alleviate free-floating anxiety.

2. Colouring Alleviates Stress




Colouring is therapeutic in the sense that it allows the fear center of your brain to relax, thereby relaxing you —and not just while you are coloring. Giving your amygdala periodic rests actually reduces your stress overall. Coloring is a meditative, free-time activity you can schedule, making it perfect for retraining your amygdala to respond less harshly to stress.

3. Discover Your Creativity

Adults who color regularly find that they become great at picking colors for their clothes, their interiors, etc. Coloring books and pages also help people become more creative in their jobs, analytical thinking activities and several other aspects of work and play.
