Therapy Coloring Books

Coloring may sound like a simple activity to ward off boredom, but for people with disabilities, learning differences or handicaps, it can actually improve health by engaging the mind and sharpening fine motor skills and mental acuity.

Another study found that coloring helped reduce agitation and aggression as it is very distracting, without being stressful.  In fact, other scientific studies have shown that coloring for adults has much the same effect as meditation does.  Coloring, like meditation, allows you to switch off your brain from other thoughts and focus on the moment – which can be very therapeutic and calming.
