Adult coloring is a great way to relax, promote mindfulness, and allow creativity.

Color Me Calm is a program geared toward adults who want to slow down and reduce anxiety while coloring. Drop in and join us as we learn some mindfulness tips and relax, color, and meet new people.

All supplies provided. Join us in the second-floor auditorium at Burbank Central Library.

REDUCE STRESS AND ANXIETY
Coloring has the ability to relax the fear center of your brain, the amygdala. It induces the same state as meditating by reducing the thoughts of a restless mind. This generates mindfulness and quietness, which allows your mind to get some rest after a long day at work.

IMPROVE MOTOR SKILLS AND VISION
Coloring goes beyond being a fun activity for relaxation. It requires the two hemispheres of the brain to communicate. While logic helps us stay inside the lines, choosing colors generates a creative thought process.

IMPROVE SLEEP
We know we get a better night’s sleep when avoiding engaging with electronics at night, because exposure to the emitted light reduces your levels of the sleep hormone, melatonin. Coloring is a relaxing and electronic-free bedtime ritual that won’t disturb your level of melatonin.

IMPROVE FOCUS
Coloring requires you to focus, but not so much that it’s stressful. It opens up your frontal lobe, which controls organizing and problem solving, and allows you to put everything else aside and live in the moment, generating focus.
