Welcome to the world of colouring books for adults! Lose yourself in your new Celtic Calm Cross Colouring Book and unplug from the stresses of your day. Our Celtic Calm Cross Colouring Book features 36 Celtic Cross inspired designs for you to colour as a calming activity which reduces your stress levels. It also can help you feel more successful, as you gain a sense of accomplishment when you finish your artwork. Colouring is a very low risk activity that is very rewarding. Colouring will allow you to connect with your more playful side - and playing is an integral part of your personal well-being. Colouring reduces stress as you focus on the repetitive, and soothing activity. Colouring will hold your attention and allows you time to relax. Research has found that colouring can reduce your stress, and therefore has many health benefits! Reduced stress levels can help prevent weight gain, upper respiratory infections, and cardiovascular disease. Colouring can reduce muscle tension, reduce your heart rate, reduce breathing rate, reduce blood pressure and reduce cortisol, the stress related hormone, in the blood stream. It makes people happier and lessens anxiety levels. Colouring can also keep the mind and body of older adults active, and can lessen the declines that come with age. The colouring process can improve people’s fine motor skills, coordination and perceptional skills. Colouring will also calm your mind. As you colour, you are directing your energy to the simple, creative task at hand. As you do, you can clear your brain of routine mental chatter, much like meditation. The back and forth routine of moving a pencil while colouring, uses both sides of your brain. This results in reinforcing the connection between the two spheres, or lobes. Colouring also helps you to turn off the front lobe of your brain, which controls your desire to organize and regulate your surroundings . When you lose yourself in colouring your Celtic Calm Colouring Book, you feel more relaxed and balanced.
