Coloring has been found to be a meditative activity for seniors. Why is meditation important? First of all, it has been shown to increase the brain tissue connecting the two hemispheres, which activates both logic and creativity. Logic helps us choose the color for a particular section, while creativity helps us mix and match colors. Using both hemispheres together can help improve brain function and memory.
The best part of coloring is that you don’t have to be a skilled artist to enjoy it. You can simply find a picture that entices you and color it any way you choose, using colored pencils, crayons or watercolor pencils. There are a wide variety of adult coloring books on the market today featuring everything from random designs to nature scenes. Rediscover your inner child by trying out an adult coloring book!
Because the activity of coloring creates such focused attention, it allows kids to become totally immersed in the present moment, rather than rehearsing negative events of the past or worrying about things in the future. It develops patience and promotes mindfulness…. two qualities we can all use more of!
