Neuroscience research shows that coloring is quite effective in releasing stress and calming our nervous systems. When the brain creates patterns through repetition and boundaries, it relaxes. So, coloring is a perfect way to settle any anxious thoughts and stay in the present moment. Plus, for many of us, it's a lot of fun! I've recently led retreatants in coloring sessions, and their experiences have been quite positive.
