Coloring Books for Adults - Therapy and Enjoyment (Coloring Books and Jade Color Meaning)

Coloring books for adults have become very popular.  My mother-in-law who is in her 80's has a stack of them. She and friends also have a weekly coloring book group activity.  I gave one of my girlfriends a coloring book for her birthday last month.  She asks me if I want to put on of her colored pictures on my refrigerator, like we used to do when we were in elementary school.

Coloring can be psychological transformation.  It gives a sense of freedom, a childlike innocence, pure and simple joy.  It's not only fun,; it helps you get in touch with your creative, artistic side.  Since it works with a positive and creative part of your brain, you may find it helps you accomplish tasks in your home and at work joyfully and more quickly than it used to take to do those tasks.

Coloring can help you de-stress, relieve anxiety, and even achieve a meditative state.  It calms the mind, grounds and balances, and increases your feelings of joy and contentment.

Sounds like the way jade colors help balance your meridians and qi energy flow.  Both jade choice and choices you make coloring about shapes and colors you choose, are the ones you need for healing and balancing your body, mind and spirit.

Coloring therapy has been used for years with adults and children in counseling and health centers.  It's being used more for helping people with chronic pain and other health problems, especially senior citizens who could benefit more from coloring than taking medications.  Coloring is even being used in addiction recovery therapy.

We're choosing colors for carpets, flooring, cabinets, walls etc for the new home that will be built.  I start the process as a stressful, anxiety producing task, and the working with colors really turns to relaxing, less stress and anxiety.

Wearing your jade and coloring: that's fun and healthy for you.
