Coloring Can Help You Unwind
There are several ways to calm down and unplug at the end of the day—you can exercise to blow off steam, you can have a soothing cup of tea, read a book, watch TV etc. But coloring has the ability to not only calm your nerves but also take your mind off the stress of your day simply with one stroke of your crayon or marker. Studies show that art has healing powers that can help you clear your mind in a therapeutic way. As Dr. Stan Rodski, a neuropsychologist and author of a line of adult coloring books, explains: “coloring elicits a relaxing mindset, similar to what you would achieve through meditation.”
