It was only a matter of time before I bought myself a colouring book! It seems that you can’t read a blog, log into Twitter or walk into a bookshop without being smacked in the face by beautifully intricate colouring books for adults.
The inspiration behind all of these stunning books is linked back to art therapy. A lot of us live in a world where we’re glued to our phones obsessively checking emails. Our busy lifestyles can sometimes catch up with us and it’s important to take some time out to reflect and recharge.
Colouring offers a stress-relieving experience that increases your focus and creativity. There’s no rules, just the page and your colours of choice. And it’s very satisfying seeing your finished masterpiece!
There’s plenty of books available from tattoo designs to gardens, but I’ve chosen a more feline option. That’s right, if my allergies are going to prevent me from being a crazy cat lady then I reserve the right to have cat themed eeeeeeverything!
Cat Therapy by Charlotte Segond-Rabilloud is an absolute sight to behold! There’s 100 different designs of cats – from the cute to the mysterious – for the users to colour in which ever way they please. It’s also handy notebook sized, so it’s easy for you to colour on the go! Not that I’ve mustered up the courage to colour on the train yet, but I’m sure I will!
