Coloring for the Elderly
Coloring is becoming a very important activity in elder care and for elderly people who live alone as well. Part of the reason for this is that coloring shows signs of being a very helpful method of preventing dementia. The reason for this is because of the similarities between coloring and meditation.
Scientists have been discovering a lot about how meditation can stave off dementia and other neurological disorders. It helps you form new neural connections and causes your entire brain to light up in brain scans, while most other forms of stimulation just cause individual areas of the brain to light up.
When your brain is working in sync with itself and is making new connections, it is working in a way that the brain does not usually have to work on a day to day basis. This is really good for people, especially for people who fear that their brain function might be decreasing.
In studies on human subjects, it has been proven that a regular meditation practice increases the amount of white matter you have in your brain. Your brain actually gets bigger because of meditation. This gives researchers hope that meditation may actually be able to reverse brain damage and loss of brain function.
What does this have to do with coloring? After all, we’re not asking people to sit and chant in Sanskrit at their coloring books before they pick up their markers, are we?
Here’s why it relates to coloring. There have also been many studies showing that coloring and meditation have almost the exact same effect on the brain. The benefits are the same: they both reduce stress and lower blood pressure in the same way. Brain scans of people coloring and people meditating are almost identical. There haven’t yet been studies done proving that coloring makes you grow more brain tissue, but there is a lot of cause to hope that coloring might also have the same effects as meditation in this area as well.
Benefits of Coloring
So coloring helps elderly people lower their blood pressure and reduce their stress. It may also have neuro protective effects against dementia. Furthermore, coloring is a really fun activity and it lets people tap into their creativity. What’s not to love?
