7 Unexpected Things That Happen When Adults Start Coloring

Coloring is not just for the kids. It is not something that just kills some time on a rainy afternoon for the 10 and under set.

It is something that adults around the world are picking up.

It is becoming the latest most popular trend for reducing stress among adults that do not want to rely on medication or other therapies to get their stress under control.
There are many good reasons why you should go get your crayons and start coloring.

Here are 7 Unexpected Things That Happen When Adults Start Coloring

1. You improve your concentration.

We live in a hectic world these days. Our concentration is often incredibly split between work, home, electronics, and other stimuli. When you sit down and focus on one thing, like coloring, it improves your ability to focus elsewhere.

2. You unleash your inner creativity.

Coloring inside or outside the lines does wonders to unleash your inner creativity. Adults who color are more likely to approach problems more creatively and find better solutions.

3. Your brain treats it like meditation.

When you color, the same things happen inside of your brain as when you meditate.

4. You can chill out anywhere any time.

Bored on a plane? Color. Feeling stressed at work? Color (on your break). Nothing to do at home? Color. It's awesome. You can do it wherever.

5. You improve your motor skills.

All that coloring inside of the lines improves hand-eye coordination and your overall motor skills.

6. You release negative thoughts.

It's like with meditation. When you color, you focus on what you're doing and you just sort of naturally release a lot of tension and negative thinking.

7. You'll decrease your anxiety and stress.

Coloring is the ultimate anxiety and stress relief. Spending a half hour coloring does wonders.
