What about the science behind coloring as therapy for anxiety and stress relief? The next thing I did after creating these drawings was to reach out to an authority on the topic of mental health to find out if there is actually any real benefit to adult coloring .

Hello! Magazine © Provided by Hello Magazine UK Hello! Magazine Colouring may benefit the mental health of adults, researchers claim. Colouring books designed for adults are all the rage at the moment, with titles such as Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Colouring Book by Johanna Basford becoming one of the best-selling titles on Amazon.

Other doodling books feature Japanese patterns and mandala-style motifs, with academics at the University of Otago in New Zealand now finding that daily colouring can improve some negative psychological conditions and may be an effective, inexpensive and accessible self-help tool.

The researchers tested 115 women aged between 18 to 36, with each participant randomly assigned either a booklet containing 10 pictures for colouring or a booklet of puzzles, such as logic puzzles, Sudoku and word searches.

Participants were asked to complete an inventory of their psychological wellbeing in terms of depressive symptoms, stress, anxiety, resilience and mindfulness. After a week of either colouring-in or completing logic puzzles for 10 minutes a day, the groups were asked once again to fill in the psychological inventory.

"Following that week of colouring, but not puzzling, participants reported lower levels of depressive symptoms and anxiety," joint study author Dr. Celia Lie said. "Those who coloured showed a small increase in mindfulness, although the same was also true of those who completed logic puzzles. That suggests mindfulness is not the driving factor behind the improvements to depressive symptoms and anxiety in the colouring group."

Why, As Adult Women, Are We Getting Acne, Pimples And Zits?

  Why, As Adult Women, Are We Getting Acne, Pimples And Zits? illustration credit: shutterstock We're full grown women, so we why do we get acne!? Wrinkles and acne advice: Adult acne can rear its ugly head at any time, even if you were lucky enough to escape adolescent acne. In Western cultures, acne affects up to 95 per cent of adolescents and persists in up to 12 per cent of women and three percent of men. It can be very frustrating - and even devastating for some people. Pimple triggers for those of us adulting Hormones, diet and stress play a vital role in exacerbating acne. Other triggers can be linked to your menstrual cycle, excess production of testosterone and even polycystic ovary syndrome in severe or resistant cases. If you've recently stopped taking the birth control pill, you may notice an increase in acne. There are some studies that suggest that milk has a negative impact as well. One of the key things to remember when treating adult acne is that mature skin is different from adolescent skin. Adult skin produces less oil, has a slower rate of cellular turnover and may not heal as quickly. Adult acne tends to be chronic and low grade, with closed comedones being the most common type of lesion. A few papulopustules are usually present as well. In adults, rosacea may present with pustules and be mistaken for adult acne. Other signs and symptoms, such as redness of the skin, should alert the practitioner to consider rosacea in a different diagnosis.

Fellow researcher Dr. Tamlin Conner added that the research findings mark an important first step in understanding the psychological benefits of colouring-in. She stated that colouring-in may soon be considered a within the same creative categories as gardening or gourmet cooking.

"With its low risk and accessibility, we feel comfortable adding colouringto the growing list of creative activities for improving mental health outcomes," she shared.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s Anti-Inflammation Natural Remedy Gets Another Hollywood Star Hospitalized .
photo credit: shutterstock Gerard Butler tries a natural anti-inflammation remedy - only to get stung! Gwyneth Paltrow has done it. And Actor Gerard Butler wanted to do it. And he did. He just didn’t get the results he wanted. Butler shared last week that after trying apitherapy, that is getting treated with bee venom injection, he went into anaphylactic shock and had to be taken to the hospital. And not just once, but twice. The remedy of getting injected with the venom from bee stings is said to help ease muscle aches, and Butler had just finished a 12-hour day of doing stunt work for his upcoming movie Geostorm. He dished about the incident on a talk show, as reported by The Guardian. What the heck is apitherapy? Apitherapy has been a practice for centuries, although it originally involved placing live bees on inflamed areas. Nowadays, the venom is extracted from the bees and then injected in to the patient. It's claimed to also be helpful for multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, skin lesions and chronic hives. Paltrow has tested it out to help with inflammation and scarring. And like other controversial tips on goop.com, it is not yet accepted by the science community. The aftermath of a bee venom injection Butler said that he'd heard about a guy who does bee venom injections for anti-inflammatory treatments, and decided to ask him to come to New Orleans where he was filming. Butler got 10 shots, and then had an allergic reaction.
