Remember the joys of colouring books as a child? The thrill of filling up a blank page with splashes of colour and coming out with a beautifully finished end product? You can rediscover this simple pleasure with adult colouring books, which have recently taken off as a highly trendy product.
Colouring in for grown ups is establishing itself as a popular pastime. It’s easy to see why – it’s relaxing, fun and gives you the opportunity to rediscover a creativity which you might well have left behind in your childhood. The designs are usually highly intricate or abstract, so you won’t feel like you’ve just borrowed your child’s colouring book. You never know, you might discover that your design skills are better than you realised and it might lead on to a hobby which you take more seriously, or even a whole new career path.
There are also benefits for your everyday life which you can gain from colouring in and producing artwork. It has been proven to increase concentration, focus and creativity, which are all excellent attributes to have in the workplace.
