THE SECRET BENEFITS OF COLORING PATTERNS: FOR ADULTS ONLY

Who told you that once you reach a certain age, you can’t color anymore?

Coloring is good for adults
Everyone copes with stress in their own special way.

Some people do yoga. Some people go shopping. Others meditate, run marathons, smoke cigarettes, go to church, or spend hours at the gym. A few even hit the bottle, get medicinal marijuana cards, or use Vicodin in unintended ways.

But the smartest people know there’s another approach. They have mastered the art of relaxing their brain and relieving stress without going broke, pulling a muscle, or getting arrested.

And if you’re reading this, I’m betting your one of them.

One of those coloring people.

You know the secret about coloring patterns.

You know that you can instantly zone out, calm down, quiet your thoughts in a simple, healthy, low cost way.

You understand that the lure of coloring is not just an entrancing diversion that only belongs in the kingdom of childhood.

You can still embrace the feeling of quiet engagement that allows contemplation and reflection while creating something with your hands.

We all seem to have a crush on our years spent as kids. But what is it about being a child that is so alluring?

Is it the freedom to pursue what makes us feel good without the constant judgements of how we spend our time and what’s labeled as appropriate for our age?

Or maybe it’s being allowed to be creative without an expectation of skill and putting colors together just because you like the way they look.

Remember when you could show off your finished product without having to back it up with a bio and an art degree?

If you still have a bag of colored pens and a tattered book of Dover coloring patterns shoved under your bed, hidden away like an unmentionable, you get it.

If you have ever printed out abstract repeating geometric shapes, spent 2 hrs coloring them in only to hastily stuff them into a drawer when your mother-in-law stops by unexpectedly or your teenager gets home early from the football game, then you get it.

If you are content with being placed on hold as long as you have a gel pen and a pad of large post-its to doodle on, then you get it.

Don’t let the fear of being judged keep you from your practice.
