The 10 Best Colouring Books For Adults

header_newnew

If only we had realized when we were kids that those days were the best days. Chances are the last time you spent an afternoon colouring you weren’t worried about what you should make for dinner or why he hasn’t texted you back yet. Sometimes just trying to ~adult~ on a regular bases can be a reaaal struggle. Which is why reviving this childhood hobby and indulging in some adult colouring is the perfect remedy.

These magical pieces of fresh ink have been linked to help reduce stress and anxiety while promoting creativity and relaxation. Neuropsychologist and author of his own colouring books, Dr. Stan Rodski says, “colouring elicits a relaxing mindset, similar to what you would achieve through meditation. Like meditation, colouring allows us to switch off our brains from other thoughts and focus on the moment.” Basically like a bubble bath but with paper and pencil crayons. If you want to get started with this artsy and relaxing trend, scroll through for a list of some of our fave colouring books!
