Coloring as Meditation

Do you have trouble meditating in the traditional way? Coloring is a great alternative.

Can coloring replace meditation?

Some people have a lot of trouble turning “off” their minds when they try to meditate in the traditional way. Coloring is a great alternative because it instills a sense of relaxation.

When you focus on coloring, psychological changes take place in the brain and body. Your heart rate lowers, brainwave patterns change, and the amygdala (the emotion center of the brain) is less active.

How does coloring relieve stress?

Just like traditional meditation, coloring helps your brain switch gears. Instead of worrying about all your stresses and daily chores, you are able to focus on the moment.

When you color, your brain focuses on the task at hand instead of other worries. Intricate, geometric patterns are especially helpful, like in our Mindfulness Coloring Book. The repetitive nature of coloring is also soothing.

Can coloring help with emotional and mental health issues?

Daily stresses, boredom, and lack of structure are triggers for many people. Coloring gives you something positive to focus on. It replaces the negative feelings of anxiety with positive feelings. Creating something gives you a sense of fulfillment.

What other benefits does coloring have?

In addition to being relaxing, coloring also has intellectual benefits. When you color, you use areas of the brain that are associated with focus and concentration. Enhanced focus and concentration help build problem solving and organizational skills.

Even the famed psychologist Carl Jung believed in the positive effects of coloring. He believed that coloring mandalas helped achieve inner calm and self-realization.

Experience the mind-altering and calming effects of coloring for yourself. Try out our Mindfulness Coloring Book today.
