Color Your Way to CalmDec 16, 2020
Coloring Can Help When You Are Anxious
Feeling anxious, worried, restless? Anxiety is a feeling of overwhelm. It can cause a whole series of physical, mental, emotional, or other symptoms. Anxiety can often cause restlessness, or even agitation. Being anxious prevents your ability to focus, or make decisions. You may experience a feeling of "being trapped". Your mind is anxious and your body is panicked.
The good news is that it is absolutely possible to rewire your brain to experience more calm in life. One of the ways to engage the brain, so that you are helping yourself to literally rewire your neural pathways is by coloring. The results of a small study published in 2005, Can Coloring Mandalas Reduce Anxiety?, suggest that coloring does appear to help reduce anxiety. Interestingly, these findings showed that it was coloring for twenty minutes of a mandala, or a design-form rather than free-form coloring that was most effective at alleviating anxiety.
