An Effective Alternative to Meditation, It has been found that coloring apps, coloring books, and pages invoke the same responses from the brain, as seen while meditating. It is an established medical fact that meditation has potent psychological benefits. However, one can only reach the zen state of mind after years of practice.
Stimulates Creativity, coloring gives your kids an opportunity to express their creative side. A child makes an imaginary world in his mind before drawing the picture on the sheet. So, hand your kids a box of crayons and set them free. This can lead to many highly desired outcomes. It allows your children to think about the different color combinations that he or she can use to give an appealing look to the picture. Do not fret if your kids are not coloring properly or if he is coloring outside the lines. Praise them for his effort. If you see your kids making mistakes while coloring, help them with it instead of chiding. Teach him how to fill a space and do up and down stroke. You can also teach him to use complementary colors to make the picture appear more vibrant. coloring is also an excellent medium of expression. Children often express their personality through drawing and coloring.
Motor Skill, The act of coloring can improve motor skills in your children. The motions involved in coloring like holding the tools and scribbling with crayon can help in the development of the tiny muscles in his wrist, fingers and hands. Fine motor skills help your children to write and manipulate small objects. This helps your children to perform better academically. coloring helps to develop and strengthen the hand muscles, which later helps with activities like typing and lifting objects.
Therapy for Neurological and Mental Disorders, Although unconventional, many psychologists use coloring as a form of art therapy to treat patients suffering from obsessive-compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, anxiety and panic attacks, depression, eating disorders, drug addiction, anger management, and many more mental and neurological issues. Coloring books, with the help of complex designs, engage the person’s attention in a productive activity, removing the mind’s focus from the negative issues and habits.
Stimulates Both Cerebral Hemispheres, Apart from effectively combating stress and anxiety, picking up the crayons also stimulates both the left and right cerebral hemispheres of our brain. Gloria Martinez Ayala believes that coloring manages to trigger a number of regions in both the right and left hemispheres of our brain. “The action involves both logic, by which we color forms, and creativity, when mixing and matching colors. This incorporates the areas of the cerebral cortex involved in vision and fine motor skills [coordination necessary to make small, precise movements].” says Ayala.
Theresa Citerella, a student of art therapy at the Lesley University, was quoted saying that a lot of her classmates use coloring books in class to focus on their lessons. Similarly, Theresa also states that fidgety clients attending therapy sessions tend to ask for coloring books to concentrate and participate in group discussions. To achieve these positive results, people have started using coloring apps, such as the Mandala Coloring, on their smartphones and tablets. Coloring apps help you engage in this creative activity on the go.
