Coloring has been shown to have stress reducing benefits and even stimulates the part of the brain that is responsible for creativity and logic. Evidence also points to the fact that a short coloring session can improve one’s focus and creativity. While I say this coloring is not the only activity these benefits are restricted to, music, crafts, dance and event home repairs and knitting has been shown to decrease depression and anxiety. Group coloring therapy sessions are now experimentally tried for those with PTSD and other stress related disorders.
