Mandala coloring books and apps are ideal for patients with many diseases including epilepsy and lower blood pressure. Individuals suffering from epilepsy have several limitations, but coloring mandala pages can help them calm down easily and promotes relaxation. Jerky hand movements are easily controlled by coloring these books and apps regularly. Such individuals can enjoy this activity as it reduces epileptic attacks. Coloring of concentric circles in mandala pages helps in maintaining blood pressure levels at normal.
The process of one′s fingers moving back and forth as one colors is calming. It doesn′t require much thinking‐ you just pick a color, after that everything is already mechanical. That′s one of the reasons why teachers use this as a quiet time activity. In that brief moment, when your child is so focused on coloring, notice that his/her breathing is calmer and even. This is especially true for preschoolers. Coloring helps them cool down after an exhausting or exciting activity. Or when they are too excited for an upcoming event‐ say a trip, and they are too restless, I recommend coloring as a way to calm them down.
According to color theorists, pictures help to stimulate memory and boost information recall. But this doesn′t mean printing and sticking‐up random pictures around the room; it′s the colors used within the images that help with the revision process. For example, an image of a sky will inevitably incorporate lots of blue, and the color blue is known to be calming and to boost creativity – both of which are important during revision. Or red, which is associated with adrenaline and correction, encourages both awareness and vigilance, in turn boosting memory and recall. Different pictures may be relevant at different stages of revision. Red may be more appropriate in the thick of revision, whilst your child is trying to absorb as much information as possible, whereas blue may be more beneficial in the days leading up to exams to keep stress levels low.
