So weve identified that every new skill that we learn requires a step-by-step approach. Youll notice that even coloring in can be broken down in smaller steps in terms of the stages of the development of this type of skill. A child will begin by simple learning how to pick up and hold a crayon or colored pencil. Then they will learn how to apply the color onto the paper. Youll notice that your child goes over the lines of the outlined drawing at first but dont worry, this is only natural. Your child will soon learn how to color within the outlined areas. You should encourage your child to select different colors for different parts of the drawing.
Coloring in a Coloring Book. You can buy a coloring book in any grocery store just look in the childrens department. Some coloring books incorporate puzzles and other activities. Buy a box of crayons with lots of colors as you can really express yourself. The stress reducing part of this plan is that you choose a picture or activity that feels good to you, something you can focus your mind on. This focusing will redirect your thoughts to less stressed thoughts. The colors you choose do not have to be appropriate to the theme of the picture if you so desire. The idea here is to feel creative, to slow down and release your feelings in your coloring activity.
Coloring in pages that are specific for coloring. I have found a few websites that have pages to color that are downloadable. You can also try a resource store for teachers. These specific pages for coloring are pictures or drawings of a variety of design that you alone enjoy. You can make your own coloring book with these pages. After coloring the designs you can write your own narrative about how you feel. Write how the design itself and the colors you used relieved your stress. You can even write a short story about the design if you like, this is your project and it is for your eyes only.
The lines of your coloring page are the rules you need to share with your team, share with them the boundaries. They are more likely to stay with in the lines if they know that they exist. Next by holding the work up for group and team acceptance they become their own self policing force. They can set self expectations and make constructive self criticism as well. The reward is acceptance and recognition from the team, an old saying is that a person can starve without any feedback, but only needs one good compliment to be filled to overflowing.
The themes of adult coloring books are usually intricate and centered more around adult images, not your childhood counterparts that included bunnies, super heroes, and farm animals. You would expect to see geometric patterns, psychedelic patterns reminiscent of doodle art type pages, fantasy images including angels, dragons, goddesses and mermaids, and ancient designs of religious and spiritual nature.
So why the fascination, and how can they help you? In the most basic sense, the act of applying colored media to intricate line drawings is a benefit to relaxation and stress reduction. You are able to put the outside world aside for the moment and focus on the art of coloring singularly. Studies have shows that anxiety levels dropped in adults that colored. They did note that simple doodling had no affect on anxiety. The focus on coloring and switching off the brain allows that blocking of anxiety in the moment. Coloring does not have a need for complicated thought processes and like listening to calming music, you are able to get within yourself, isolated from external anxiety, commotion, and distractions.
