Dr. Joel Pearson, a brain scientist at the University of New South Wales in Australia explains: ”You have to look at the shape and size, you have to look at the edges, and you have to pick a color. It should occupy the same parts of the brain that stops any anxiety-related mental imagery happening as well. Anything that helps you control your attention is going to help.”
”If you look at it from the brain perspective, when they started coloring their brain learn it as a happy place and it helped them to feel quite youthful again,” He said. ”It’s a carefree happiness because with that childhood memory comes a sense of no responsibility, accountability or pressure, and the brain reacts to that.” He’s so convinced of the little known power of coloring that he even created his own range of coloring meditation books.
A psychologist in Melbourne, Australia is an avid fan of coloring as an effective tool for helping his clients relax and unwind. Dr. Stan shared that he was having trouble getting his clients to use traditional techniques such as breathing, yoga and meditation to help control anxiety. When he saw how quickly and easily coloring relaxed children, he decided to research it as an alternative for adults and found it helped them achieve the same deep sense of relaxation. He maintains that ”five minutes of coloring a day is enough to get the same effect on the brain as about an hour worth of conventional meditation.”
