Adult coloring books. By Dr James Manning, ClinPsyDRead More
Ten reasons why adult coloring books have become so popular
Ten reasons why hundreds of thousands of adults have come to love adult coloring books?
1. Adult coloring books can be carried around and used anywhere. Many people report finding coloring books helpful when a) visiting sick relatives in hospital b) experiencing long periods of uncertainty c) processing emotions d) feeling stressed and anxious and e) trying to avoid snacking and over eating.
2. Adult coloring books are a very healthy alternative to the use of blue-screen emitting devices such as televisions, computers, tablets and smart phones.
3. Individuals do not need to be good at art to use an adult coloring book.
4. Coloring requires focus and attention being placed in the present. This is especially relevant for complex coloring books.
5. Research indicates that coloring complex patterns significantly reduces anxiety.
6. Complex coloring helps people to detach from overthinking, for example worrying, or ruminating.
7. Coloring creates a brain wave signature similar to that created through meditation. It also encourages the use of the right-hand side of the brain which can be under used in many individuals (especially those with highly verbal occupations).
8. Working memory (which is a part of the brain used to hold on to information and manipulate it at the same time) is put under less strain by coloring; more specifically coloring is a low effort cognitive activity that requires sustained attention.
9. Coloring can fully occupy conscious awareness and does not require complex decisions to be made. This gives the brain an opportunity to work on or process important day-to-day information in the background.
10. Colored in pages can be framed and offered as gifts. Colored pages from adult coloring books can also be used as thank you cards, christmas cards and birthday cards. This can work especially well if they are downloaded as PDFs.
Are adult coloring books different from children’s coloring books?
Adult coloring books are very different from children’s coloring books. There are hundreds of themes available, from doodles, patterns, ‘Day of the Dead’ sugar skulls to mandalas. As such, there is a high likelihood of most people being able to find a subject that interests them. Often coloring pages can be highly intricate, use high quality paper, and can be framed (more so if downloaded as PDFs).
How coloring can prevent the brain over-revving
Alpha waves (consistent with a meditative state)
Beta waves (consistent with a highly awake state)
Theta and Delta waves (associated with sleep)
A problem occurs when the brain begins to over-rev due to spending too much time in Beta mode. (This can result from using higher regions of the brain too often by over-working, over-thinking, and/or receiving too much blue light stimulation.) It the brain gets locked in Beta mode people a) find it difficult to switch off from over thinking b) find it difficult to have a restful sleep and c) wake up early (often thinking) and d) feel physically tired and lethargic.
What can change brain wavelength activity?
Neuro-psychologists suggest that brain waves associated with higher levels of mental activity (Beta waves) change to Alpha waves (associated with mental resting states such as meditation or listening to music) when adults color complex patterns. The key to this change appears to be the focus and repetition required in coloring.
Can coloring help to in offering a restful sleep?
Coloring activity can help people to change gear quickly (or move into Alpha wave activity). Once in an Alpha wave state the brain is in a better position to move into emitting Theta then Delta waves. With a change in neurological activity there tends to be a corresponding change in physiology. (Cognitive behavioural models suggest our thoughts and the way that we think affect the way that we feel. Therefore if we engage in worrying thoughts there is a corresponding change in physiology; our heart rate increases, we experience muscle tightness, and our blood pressure goes up. Equally, if we are able to detach from worrying thoughts, the opposite physiological reaction occurs.)
What does coloring research suggest?
Nancy Curry and Tim Kasser, two researchers at Knox college, Illinois, USA, carried out a study in 2005 with 84 undergraduate students. After initially inducing anxiety in students, the students were randomly separated into three coloring activity groups. One group colored plaid forms (Tartan style blocks of color), another group colored a complex mandala, while the third group were encouraged to free draw using colors. Curry and Kasser found that the groups that colored plaid forms and the mandala had a similar reduction in anxiety and that the reduction of anxiety in these groups was significantly greater than that noticed in the free coloring group. The researchers suggested that it was “the complexity and structure of the plaid and mandala designs [that] drew the participants into a meditative-like state that helped reduce their anxiety” (pp. 84)
