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.”
Coloring allows children to express their individuality through color selection and medium. It’s interesting to observe how much pressure they apply, the color choices they make, and whether they color loosely or tightly. Everyone is different and so is each masterpiece. Filling in the spaces with color on a printed page helps children to learn hue, perspective, shape and form as well as giving them an opportunity to explore different color combinations.
”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.
