Colour Your World Happy: Mindfulness Colouring Books

As you tuck your tired feet up, creep open the fresh crisp pages of creative possibilities and snap open your new set of colouring fine-tips, is the cheeky monkey inside your head rattling his cages, mocking your newly acquired hobby as nothing but a mere childish pursuit?

Lock his door and tell him where to shove it ladies as colouring is the new it darling of the modern world and unexpected secret answer to peaceful serenity for most. Whether you scoff at its increasingly mainstream status as it flanks the stands in Waterstones or you've already managed to power your way through 3 books already, there's no doubt that the colouring book for the golden oldies is having a shining moment.

Often used as a means to de-stress from the tiresome perils of the working 9-5, it's no wonder that individuals are turning to the creative outlet of colour work as a way of keeping calm and relaxing from the increasing stress levels that society face nowadays. Putting pen to paper can be an expressive and fun way of immersing yourself into the world of mindfulness by absorbing yourself back into the spontaneity of child-like imagination and switching off from the mental fog that comes with adult responsibilities. By taking some time each day just to immerse yourself in some quiet and peaceful expression allows you to appreciate and reconnect with the perks of taking life at a slower pace and interpreting reality in the here and now.

Time to pick up your crayons, live in the present moment and take a sneaky peak at the grown-up colouring books that'll have your inner kid squealing in glee!
