Adult Colouring: The Art Of Mindfulness

I've noticed adult colouring books had taken quite a storm over the last year and for good reason too. I've always been curious how helpful these kind of colouring books are and the one i ended up  purchasing was 'THE ART OF MINDFULNESS: PEACE AND CALM COLOURING' mainly because i loved the patterns and pictures. You can get the other 3: Happy and Energized,  Relaxed and Focused & Serene and Tranquil on Amazon or at a local book store. If you haven't jumped onto this bandwagon, these colouring books are aimed at adults. They help with anxiety, insomnia, stress and just plain old boredom. 
Who didn't love colouring in when they were little? Filled with beautiful and soothing patterns to colour in, they honestly help you unwind after a long day.
As a kid i loved colouring, colouring was my way of being creative and just have fun with the colours/ create my own art.

Adult colouring books are a great way to spark your creativity. As silly as it sounds, colouring takes you into another world just like a good book does, its something to be creative with if not writing or blogging, I'm having a little colouring sesh.
Remember the childhood-bliss of a brand new colouring book and a fresh box of crayons? Was there anything better than that on a rainy day or on an afternoon when you just wanted to lose yourself for a few hours and forget about how dull your day was except for playtime.

I definitely plan on purchasing more books with stunning patterns... There are plenty of studies on the effectiveness of art therapy in reducing stress, and colouring seems to offer some similar benefits, colouring offers that relief and mindfulness without the paralysis that a blank page can cause. Every pattern is just one beautiful canvas that you wish you have on your bedroom wall. May this be the first of many beautiful adult colouring adventures. 
I love ending the day relaxing in bed, with a good album and my trusty colouring book.
