Colouring reduces stress and anxiety
Allow these unique drawings to whisk you away to a world of relaxation through colour. This is the perfect remedy for relaxation and creativity by allowing your mind to focus on colouring.
"Colouring is a stress-free activity that relaxes the amygdala — the fear center of the brain — and allows your mind to get the rest it needs". – Ben Michaelis, Clinical psychologist
Colouring also trains your brain to focus
Staying inside the lines takes focus, but not so much that it’s stressful. Clinical counselor Leslie Marshall notes that the activity opens up the frontal lobe of the brain – the home of organising and problem solving – and focuses the mind by allowing colourers to forget their worries.

Sharping your mind, not just your pencils
"I love the illustrations because there's a lot of open spaces between the lines and the different background objects per page gives you a full colouring experience. I feel like it keeps my memory sharper and more relaxed after 30 minutes of colouring."
Jane H, QLD

NOT JUST FOR ARTISTS…
RELAXING & THERAPEUTIC BENEFITS
Adult colouring books aren’t just for those with artistic skills
Yes, colouring between the lines and making beautiful drawings are aspects of colouring, but the main purpose of colouring books is the mental health benefits. If you are an anxious person, highly stressed, depressed or just bored in lockdown – colouring takes your mind away from these feelings allowing you to simply focus on colouring. So draw outside of the lines, or colour trees purple and clouds yellow. It really doesn’t matter!
Adult colouring books can be focused, therapeutic, relaxing, calming, problem solving, and organisational.
