Colour away stress
on 13 October 2015
They have entertained kids for generations, but as we grow older we put our colouring books and pencils aside for more important things – like viral cat videos and checking our Facebook feed. However, the latest de-stressing technique to take the world by storm combines creativity and colour – and gives us all a break from never-ending screen time. Colouring books for adults are in.
Between the lines
Think colouring between the lines is just for kids? Not anymore. Colouring books are becoming the latest weapon against stress and anxiety for adults.
They have become popular for their therapeutic benefits by allowing you to relax after a hard day's work, and replacing addictive phone behaviour during break times. But above all else, colouring lets stressed-out adults feel like kids again and channel a worry-free lifestyle – for as little as 10 minutes a day.
