Feeding my creative side, I love my Xmas present, an “adult” coloring book! It took me about 4 weeks to finish this page but that’s the point isn’t? Slow & easy does the job.
I used color markers on my first page, now I am trying out my color pencils were I am able to shade and blend the colors more. Should take am another month to finish the second one.
Many people have been discovering this new fad that studies have shown to relax and de-stress the mind. Psychiatrist Carl Jung, the founder of analytical psychology, prescribed coloring to his patients to calm and center their minds. Today, doctors still use it to combat anxiety.
Coloring is a structured activity that activates the logic part of the brain and generates a creative mindset. Due to the fact that coloring is centering activity, the part of the brain that is involved with our fear response gets a bit of a rest and thus has a calming effect over time.
