The intense but calming focus that comes from coloring can quiet your mind and put you in a meditative state. Studies have found that coloring for 20 minutes or more can also reduce your anxiety and improve your mood. Various parts of your brain are working, so your brain’s function and motor skills can improve! Along with this, your sleep can improve if you color before you go to sleep.
