FOLLOW YOUR ART
Unless you’ve been living under a very large rock for the past couple of years, you’ve probably realised that colouring and colouring books have made a huge comeback.
And it’s not just kids who are obsessed with creating works of art; adult colouring books are becoming more and more popular. As an era that relies heavily on digital devices, it’s refreshing to see a simple activity like colouring taking over our spare time. It’s therapeutic and incredibly relaxing, which is why we guess it’s so popular!
Research backs our theory up and shows that colouring is a proven way to de-stress, unwind and relax while improving focus, memory and general wellbeing.
The popularity of colouring books doesn’t look like it’s slowing down and we were thrilled when we found Kylie Johnson’s new colouring book, Mindfulness Colouring With Affirmations for Kids and Adults. It’s rare to find a colouring book that both kids and adults can enjoy (adults are usually the ones making the sacrifices to colour in another cartoon character!) but Kylie’s book lets you indulge in this habit together.
We love each page because not only does it have a gorgeous illustration to colour but it’s also got a positive affirmation to go with it, which brings about instant feelings of gratitude, positivity, love and connection.
If we have one recommendation this week, it would be to take an hour out of your day and to sit with your little ones to colour in Kylie’s book together. It’s seriously so relaxing and brings a peaceful state of mind to the usual hectic lives of parents and kids. Put on some of your favourite music and we promise your kids will love it as much as you!

P.S. We think it would make a fabulous stocking filler for Christmas!
