Benefits of Colouring for Mental Wellbeing

When you were a child, you probably enjoyed using crayons and a colouring book, and today, you can also enjoy this activity by using adult colouring pages.

There are multiple mental health benefits from colouring therapy, so you should participate in this activity as much as possible.


Eliminating Your Mental Stress

Mental stress is detrimental for your health, and it can lead to physical problems. If you have constant stress, you could develop a range of symptoms from high blood pressure to digestive issues. Rather than using food or alcohol to relieve your stress after a difficult workday, keep an assortment of colouring pages and beautiful crayons ready at home.  Simple yet effective!


Lift Your Mood

Colouring therapy can lift your mood. Choosing brightly coloured crayons and colouring pages that have a positive or happy theme, such as our Mandala and Gratitude Bundles, are most effective. Use colours such as yellow, orange or red to stimulate the emotional centre of your brain while you create your piece of art. While colouring, concentrate on positive thoughts and say positive affirmations to yourself.


Reducing Your Anxiety Levels 

If you suffer from anxiety, then adult colouring books that focus on mindfulness can provide you with some light relief. The best colours to reduce anxiety include shades of blue or pale pink. These soothing colours can help you to feel calmer when you use an adult colouring book.


Stimulating Your Own Creativity

After using adult colouring pages for a few weeks, you may notice that you are more creative. When it has been many years since you enjoyed creating any type of art, colouring can stimulate the part of your brain that is creative.
