Sometimes, I like to give them a chance to slow down and engage with sports in a different form. Coloring gives my active boys a chance to calm down, slow the pace and catch their breath a bit (or just sit peacefully at a restaurant table while waiting for food). Coloring books exclusively about sports exist, and I have shared a dozen of our favorite sports coloring books, but that doesn′t always cut it. My kids come to the table with a vision, an idea of exactly what they want to color. Consequently, we′ve resorted to making our own coloring books with a little help from Google.
Coloring also is thought to reduce cortisol levels in your body. Cortisol is the “fight or flight” hormone. Along with adrenaline, cortisol gives you the energy and clarity to take quick action and get yourself out of danger, if you are in danger. However, for many people in the modern world, our high‐stress lives result in many people having heightened cortisol levels. Our bodies weren′t meant to have these levels of cortisol levels, and it can cause some imbalances. Our bodies are made to have elevated levels of cortisol only rarely, and only for a short amount of time. After we are safe again, cortisol levels are supposed to go back down.
Hue is pretty much synonymous to what we actually mean when we said the word "color." All of the primary and secondary colors, for instance, are "hues." Hues are important to remember when combining two primary colors to create a secondary color. If you don't use the hues of the two primary colors you're mixing together, you won't generate the hue of the secondary color. This is because a hue has the fewest other colors inside it. By mixing two primary colors that carry other tints, tones, and shades inside them, you're technically adding more than two colors to the mixture ‐‐ making your final color dependent on the compatibility of more than two colors.
