Benefits of a Senior Citizens Coloring Book
Why is a coloring book for seniors such a hot item? Partially because coloring is really good for you, and partially because making art is just so darn fun!
Dementia is one of the most feared and most terrible ailments that senior citizens can get. Many people say that they could handle losing their physical strength, but losing their memories, knowledge, and personality would be unbearable. Obviously, the medical community is constantly looking for ways to help senior citizens and the elderly avoid getting this terrible condition.
Can coloring help? Maybe it can. There have been many studies showing that meditation is neuroprotective. It can help prevent dementia and other cognitive problems. In fact, meditation has been shown to help rebuild white matter in the brain. It makes you create new neural connections. How? We’re not quite sure, but scientists suspect that it has to do with calming down, reducing your stress, and just focusing on one thing.
Stress relief for senior citizens
Coloring has been shown to have a lot of the same health benefits as meditation. It reduces stress and increases a sense of well-being. It does this even better when you color every day as a regular practice. And it definitely makes you focus on one thing. No matter what else you have going on in your life, when you color you are only thinking about what color you are going to put in the next space and making sure that you don’t go outside the lines.
So can coloring prevent dementia for people ages 55 and older? It hasn’t been scientifically proven yet. But we do know that meditation can, and that coloring acts in the brain a lot like meditation. Since coloring is a fun activity and gives you a beautiful piece of artwork in the end, there’s nothing to lose in trying it.
Large print coloring book for seniors
When we designed our coloring book for older adults, we did our best to keep in mind the specific needs that elderly people and senior citizens have. For instance, it may be hard to see very small things, so we did the coloring book equivalent of large print. We zoomed in some of our designs and simplified some designs so that the pictures are easy to see and easy to color.
