Studies have suggested that the adult use of coloring books can benefit your sense of wellbeing. Coloring allows the fear center of your brain to relax, thereby relaxing you -- and not just while you are coloring. Giving your amygdala periodic rests actually reduces your stress overall. Coloring is a meditative, free-time activity you can schedule, making it perfect for retraining your amygdala to respond less harshly to stress.
Coloring opens up the frontal lobe of the brain — the home of organizing and problem solving — and focuses the mind" by allowing colorers to forget their worries. Being able to live in the moment is a critical skill in our increasingly demanding world, and coloring trains you to put everything else aside for the hour you spend doing it
