However, we are highly intelligent beings, with highly active mines. A life full of deadlines, rush hour traffic, bills, and even high‐adrenaline movies can cause one to have continuously high levels of cortisol. The health implications of this are problems like high blood pressure, increased risks of heart attack and stroke, depression, etc. Even one short coloring session can possibly reduce the amount of cortisol in the body. A regular coloring practice is even more preferable so that you can derive benefits of coloring over a longer period.
Building on the fine motor skill areas, coloring can deepen a child′s endurance in completing writing tasks. Many times, kids will complain of hand fatigue while coloring. They can build muscle endurance by coloring with the small muscles of their hands and allow for greater endurance when writing, too. Instruct a child how to color in small circles to work on the strength and endurance of the intrinsic muscles. If a child needs to work on this area, you can show the student how to color on a slanted surface like an easel or slanted table surface.
If you color right before bed, there is also another benefit: it means that you are not looking at your phone or computer right before bed. Studies have shown that the blue light from a computer screen or a phone screen inhibits the production of the hormone melatonin, which is the hormone that regulates sleep and lets us go to bed at night. Low levels of melatonin are associated with a variety of health problems, from insomnia to obesity. If you can replace your before‐bed phone habit with a before‐bed coloring habit, you can potentially benefit from increased levels of melatonin, better sleep, and a healthier circadian rhythm.
