( — November 18, 2019) Wilmington, DELAWARE — Adult coloring books have become quite popular over the years. They come not just with higher quality of paper, but also intricate patterns of mandalas and designs.

It is worth mentioning that the use of these coloring books is linked with some brain health benefits. It relieves stress and anxiety and places the brain in a meditative state.

According to Scott M. Bea, Psy D, clinical psychologist, it has everything to do with refocusing attention.

It is worth noting that a simple act of coloring takes attention away from one’s self and directs to the present-moment event. It actually promotes a meditative exercise.

“Adult coloring requires modest attention focused outside of self-awareness. It is a simple activity that takes us outside ourselves. In the same way, cutting the lawn, knitting, or taking a Sunday drive can all be relaxing,” Bea adds.

What makes adult coloring even more beneficial is that it relaxes the brain and frees it from thoughts and appraisals. It allows the difficulties of life to disappear from one’s awareness, and the body and brain find this rewarding.

In 2006, a study has shown that mindfulness art therapy in women with cancer aided in significantly reducing symptoms of physical and emotional distress during their treatment. 

There are art therapists who consider adult coloring to be one of the effective ways to achieve mindfulness.

Art and writing tools like gel pens are some of many peoples’ favorites today, especially among individuals who use adult coloring books. These pens are widely preferred due to the fact that they offer many features, such as coming in an interesting range of colors.

These pens are also usually able to produce finer lines that make handwriting look neat and provide more space for writing on notepads. They are equipped with tips that are sturdy and strong to withstand pressure, and this is useful for heavy writers.
