This pandemic has reminded me of some of the things I used to love and haven’t done for a long time. I’ve always found colouring therapeutic and I’m really enjoying spending time each day colouring. It’s something I always did when I was younger but haven’t done in ages as I’ve been preoccupied with university and other things.
Ensure that your pencils are sharpened and let the colours take over your mind. I love using lots of different colours and making pictures as bright and colourful as possible. You can spend as little or long as you like colouring but I assure you that your mind will feel refreshed after doing so.
I found these old colouring books in a drawer at home and was able to pick up some new pens and pencils cheap in Asda. It doesn’t matter if you don’t have any colouring books and are unable to get some in the shop, you can print some templates off the internet. I already had lots of coloured ballpoint pens, highlighters and fine-liners so you can use any pens or pencils you already have too.
So pick up those pens and allow this gentle activity to free your mind!
