When you sit with your child and see him coloring on a book, you feel completely relaxed. Colors are all that you need to relieve your anxiety, depression and even stress. There is a sudden change in the mood of an individual, when he exposes himself to different shades of different colors. One look at red, purple and green shades and you are emotionally out of all the problems in your life.
So why the fascination, and how can they help you? In the most basic sense, the act of applying colored media to intricate line drawings is a benefit to relaxation and stress reduction. You are able to put the outside world aside for the moment and focus on the art of coloring singularly. Studies have shows that anxiety levels dropped in adults that colored. They did note that simple doodling had no affect on anxiety. The focus on coloring and switching off the brain allows that blocking of anxiety in the moment. Coloring does not have a need for complicated thought processes and like listening to calming music, you are able to get within yourself, isolated from external anxiety, commotion, and distractions.
Additionally by informing the hotel that you are traveling with small children, many downtown and airport properties will offer complimentary cribs, playpens, high chairs, and in some cases upgrades to larger rooms for additional space and free or discount meals. Family vacations create lasting memories for years to come, and the ability to spend time with our children while they are young is invaluable. Ensure your travels are stress free so you can spend the days enjoying your time together without the added hassles.
