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.
Often at times, the trip starts at the airport with excited and maybe nervous children preparing for what may be their first time on an airplane. Thankfully, most airlines will allow pre-boarding for families with young children to avoid the crush of the regular boarding call. Arriving at the airport in plenty of time to familiarize your children with the airport processes will help and will allow also allow them some time to explore the airport. Regardless of if you are traveling by air or by car, always remember to pack snacks, drinks, books and other attention holders to avoid the dreaded, "Im bored" complaints. An extra change of clothes also helps in the event of any travel related illnesses.
Coloring is a great way to bond. Ask your friends over for some wine, cheese and coloring. Perhaps at first they might look at you with skeptical eyes and doubt; but hand over a fresh sheet of paper, some vibrant or glitter colored pens and in just minutes you will not be able to pry those colors out of their fingers. Soon you will be visiting easily, looking over at each-others masterpieces from time to time to admire their selection of colors. You will begin to feel like you have time-traveled back into grade 2 and you do not really want to leave. Coloring is freeing and has no expectations. The beautiful thing about this craft is that there is no pressure to finish, to use a certain color or even to stay in the lines!!! There is absolute freedom involved in those precious hours where you just get to color.
