Reducing Stress through Colouring

Colouring pencilsThe other day I was colouring with one of my grandchildren, and was surprised to learn from my daughter that a lot of older adults are taking up this craft.

How Does It Help?

It requires a person to pay attention to detail, forgetting about all the other stress in their lives and helping them to relax.Any activity that causes the nervous system to drop from sympathetic (go) to parasympathetic (slow), lowers blood pressure, lessens anxiety, reduces tension headaches and relieves digestive concerns–thereby improving overall health.

Where To Find Them:

You can find adult colouring books in most craft and book stores. Enjoy!!
