My name is Paula, and this site helps to explore the world of adult colouring.  A pastime that is not only enjoyable but can also help relieve stress and anxiety.

Adult colouring books have risen in popularity in recent time and in particular during 2015, at the time of writing 4 of the top 10 books on Amazon are adult colouring-in books.

Forget about the idea that colouring books are just for kids. In today’s world which is dominated by the use of modern technology such as mobile phones and touchscreen tablets the art of colouring can take us back to our childhood and what’s more its a skill which anyone can adapt which makes it a past time for anyone and almost anywhere.

Adult versions of colouring books are like a step up from the traditional versions we once used as kids.  With complex and often abstract images the art is generally to keep the different colours between the lines, a skill which requires a focus and helps us to relax our minds.  Colouring-in books together with doodle books can help instill a level of calc and creativity into our train of thought and can become a pastime that can be picked up in times of stress and anxiety as a method of relief and release.

You could be on the train, in a hotel room after a though day at work or in the comfort of your own home, it doesn’t matter.
