There’s a new “craze” that’s taking the world by storm. Colouring. Yes, clolouring. Specifically colouring for adults. I have to admit that this was something I’ve always enjoyed. I love sitting and colouring with the kids. It was one of the things I enjoyed most at work – I’m an Early Childhood Educator. This has EXPLODED over the past few months though. You can find adult colouring books almost every where – Chapters, Michael’s, Amazon and more.
So why is this becoming such a “thing” lately? Many people are colouring to reduce stress, anxiety, help with PTSD and more. Not to mention that it’s relatively cheap to start this hobby. You can grab a pack of basic pencil crayons at the dollar store and there are free printables ALL over the place. I’ve even started a Pinterest Board for them. Facebook has a bunch of groups as well. Many of these groups also offer free printables. If you are looking for a group to join, be sure to check this one out – even if you’re not local, all are welcome.
I challenge you to find a page this week to print out and colour. Make yourself find the time – even only 15 minutes one day and sit and colour. See if it helps relax you at all. 🙂
