Do You Need An Alternative Type Of Meditation? Try Coloring!

According to psychologists, coloring can replace meditation, since they have similar effects. Unbelievable, isn't it?

The reason why coloring is so good is the fact that it helps you release your creative self who had been hidden inside of you. Creativity is really important, since it relieves any tension you might feel and makes you less anxious.

In addition, coloring is a kids' hobby, so it can make you feel young again, when everything was easier and you felt completely free.

As psychologist Antoni Martínez states, coloring is a relaxation technique, that can help us enter a more creative, freer state. Martínez recommends coloring in a quiet environment, even with chill music. As he says, "let the color and the lines flow".

Did you know? 6 out of the top 20 selling books on Amazon are adult coloring books. Coloring is considered to be an easy means to express oneself and reduce anxiety.

Another psychologist, Ben Michaelis, mentions that "there is a long history of people coloring for mental health reasons. Carl Jung used to try to get his patients to color in mandalas at the turn of the last century, as a way of getting people to focus and allow the subconscious to let go. Now we know it has a lot of other stress-busting qualities as well.”

That means that you can let yourself grab some crayons and color for a little bit or more, especially during a long, hard day at work!
