When people are stressed or anxious, they can find it difficult to stay focused in the present moment. That essentially means that their thoughts are centered around their worries or to-do list instead of what’s happening right in front of them at the given time.
When testing to measure improvements in psychological outcomes, a study concluded that ”Coloring participants showed significantly lower levels of depressive symptoms and anxiety after the intervention. We conclude that daily coloring can improve some negative psychological outcomes and that it may provide an effective, inexpensive, and highly accessible self-help tool.”
Coloring activity has always been very popular with children. Many research results have shown that a simple activity like coloring can have many positive lifelong effects on children. Coloring is a low – stress, meditative activity that allows a child to focus, calm and release creative potential. It is a non-competitive activity and also can be a social activity among children.
