Nowadays Adult Colouring books have made to the bestsellers on amazon and since the first adult colouring book was published there has been a trend that many people are actually getting into our of their life a time for this Adult colouring books.
Asking from therapist views art therapy is the name which basically intends indulgency into a creative art makes anxieties and stress go away. Art therapy according to American Art therapy association “”explore feelings, reconcile emotional conflicts, foster self-awareness, manage behavior and addictions, develop social skills, improve reality orientation, reduce anxiety and increase self-esteem.”. Yet art therapy is not only about learning and improving yourself — it’s a means of personal expression, too.
ADULT CONTENT COLORING BOOKS
When practiced its considered equivalent to meditation. And needless to say there are hundreds of benefits to meditation. But colouring an adult book that actually has sexual posage and such contents that even store keepers find it difficult to put on their shelves and the covers these books are named as art works is something of controversy.
Well if you consider it from my point of view. The way it is has increased into a trend is not a flop idea so the way people are favouring it is because it has actually forced them to get away from daily routine. Probably these pictures cause adults to get into focus working on these art figures I guess and they actually try to make an art with their strokes and patterns thereon. Also how long do you suggest a person would be willing for kids colouring book such as pokemon coloring book.
Certainly the content is not for children and therefore you must cut our from family and spend time thereon is what I consider negative to it as a quality family or time with friends has their very own benefits. But if we talk of someone’s personal improvement or self improvement artworks like this do really help a lot because it de-stress your life in real way the time when you indulge into this art you actually focus it has the power to sex has never been a mystery but yes its something that catches attention and if you are busy with something it can make it really difficult to concentrate on anything.
So the idea of sex being the biggest distraction for people is actually being encashed where you are not actually involved into the activity but you are using it to calm your mind and creative art. But as per famous therapist its not a part of art therapy as it needs someones guidance and help which is literally not a need nor a level of involved in a colouring book. But yes it’s a hobby and really a good one to de- stress.
Colouring is a Therapy
It has been found in a research in 2005 that a strong fall in anxiety levels was witnessed when subjects coloured Mandalas. So Coloring definitely has the potential to reduce anxiety and creating focus and more mindfulness. It is belived that such activities actually restore a person and therefore one of great way to restoration.
There are critics to the approach mainly Malichodi has strongly condemned it as a cheap entertainment and It must not be compared to something like meditation that has spiritual origin and benefits.
Well owing to so many approach and stuff human nature and self improvement and the critics view thereon. One should not call it as cheap as its just portraying of sexual activity and people working on it but there would be hardly anyone that actually finds having sex as disgusting. Its so a natural thing that is like eating food or having drink certainly romance and love are part but watching something so real in everyones life as cheap and disgusting seems a hypocritic thing isn’t it. you should consider it to entertain and restore energy within you.
