Fashion clothes for women are a natural subject for adult coloring books and the neckline embroidery on vintage high fashion clothing provides hours of coloring fun and relaxation.
Coloring is an activity which has long been associated with children and it has been taken for granted that, as we reach maturity, we put away our crayons and turn to more adult pursuits. In recent years however we have increasingly witnessed this wisdom being overturned and coloring for adults has become a widespread and growing hobby.
But why has coloring for adults become so popular? There are many explanations for the rapid growth in adult coloring, but here are just a few…
Coloring Reduces Stress And Anxiety
Psychiatrists have long recognized the fact that coloring relaxes the fear center of the brain and permits your mind to get some rest. Indeed the founder of analytical psychology, Carl Jung, is known to have given his patients mandalas to color more than one hundred years ago. In today’s hectic world the stress reducing properties of coloring are probably more valuable than ever.
Coloring Trains Your Mind To Focus
Staying within the lines as you color requires focus and, while you are concentrating on this stress-free and relaxing activity, you can forget about your worries. Coloring is a mental exercise which allows you to set aside everything for the time you spend doing it, and this is important in our increasingly busy world.
Coloring Helps In The Development Of Fine Motor Skills And Vision
Coloring forces the two sides of your brain to communicate and involves the use of logic (necessary to color forms) and creativity (as we mix and match colors). In turn, this brings the areas of the brain responsible for vision and fine motor skills into play, and helps in keeping these active and in developing them further. This is the aspect of coloring which is being increasingly seen as particularly valuable for older individuals, as many believe that it can delay, or even prevent, the onset of dementia.
Coloring Gives You The Chance To Be Social
Although you may think that coloring ought to be a purely solo activity, its growing popularity is rapidly turning it into a social one. Families, friends, co-workers and others are now getting together to eat, drink and enjoy the chance to socialize, through their shared interest in coloring. Undoubtedly, this is a wonderful excuse for partying, as coloring requires only minimal concentration and can be done easily in a group setting.
Coloring Lets You Be Yourself
There are no rules when it comes to coloring and your coloring book is your coloring book. If you mistakenly make the dog’s hind leg green because you mistook it for part of the grass, who cares? Should you feel like making the sky yellow, does it really matter? You may be as creative and experimental as you wish because this is your coloring book, and yours alone. When it comes to choosing colors don’t forget that the American artist James Whistler once famously remarked, “Mauve is just pink trying to be purple.”
You may already be a fan of adult coloring, in which case you will already know and appreciate its value. Alternatively, this may be a new venture for you and one that you are looking at for any one of several different reasons. If this is something new for you then I urge you to give it a try. There is a reason why so many people are excited about the world of adult coloring, so join in and start enjoying the benefits for yourself today.
