When the magazines and adverts first started telling me that’s how I’d be relaxing and that colouring books for adults would be so popular, I paid no attention whatsoever.
And then my sister bought me a mindfulness colouring book last Christmas.
Armed with my coloured pencils, I decided to give it a bit of a go while watching tv.
And I fell for it.
It really works.
As someone who has anxiety and in general is and over-thinker and likes to be occupied, it provides that perfect balance between having a task to focus on but that task being creative and relaxing.
Once I finished that book, I moved onto others. Harry Potter ones inspired by my trip to the studio tour and a Narnia one because I needed a break from flowers and nature.
There are so many options out there, and my doubt was definitely proven wrong.
Do you use colouring in as a way to relax?
