Think about it this way; would you rather spend about an hours looking over and printing out SpongeBob coloring pages, or would you prefer to drive all over the place looking for a SpongeBob coloring book? The answer to this really depends upon whether the website, or websites, you are visiting have the coloring pages of SpongeBob Squarepants that you really want. Chances are that the website/websites that you decide to look on will have the images that you are looking for; yet you might not always find what you are looking for out there. Do you realize that you can have as much fun looking for the SpongeBob coloring pages that you want as you will when you sit down to actually color those pages?
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.
