How About Doing A Bit Of Colouring?

Colouring?

Isn’t that something only children do?

How About Doing A Bit Of Colouring?

Not anymore. There is a growing trend in adults taking up colouring too.

Just take a look at these 2 articles to see what I mean:-

Why Millions of Grownups Are Buying These Coloring Books For Adults

Adults turn to colouring books to fight stress

I will admit that I have not tried out any of these colouring books yet.

That hasn’t stopped me doing a bit of colouring though.

You see, I am a crafter. I make my own greeting cards.  Amongst the things in my craft stash, I have quite a few rubber stamps so I definitely have something that I can colour in.  Plus, I have just the odd coloured pen or two too.

Here’s the before and after image of one of the stamps in my collection that I decided to experiment with.

Sense of Achievement

Did I enjoy doing this?

Yes, I certainly did.

I loved the fact that it was very therapeutic. There was something about just concentrating on bringing the image to life and not caring about anything else for a while.

There’s also the fact that you’ve got something to show for it at the end. A real sense of achievement.

Perhaps a keepsake. Perhaps something to remind us of what we are capable of if things aren’t going well in other areas of our life.

It can only be good for us, can’t it?

I think so.

Will I be doing more colouring? Yes, you bet I will.

Have you tried any of the colouring books for grownups? Do you like colouring? Or want to try? Please share your thoughts with me in the comments.

    1. Hi Zoe,

      A doodle book sounds good and as you say a great way to relax.

      I might be tempted to do some colouring in soon. It might just take my mind off the wind that is howling outside.

      Have a great week.
