Recently I have picked up a new way to unwind at the end of a long day, by coloring.
I was in a book store about 3 months ago when I saw this coloring book Lost Ocean by Johanna Basford and knew I had to get it.
Now mind you, this impulse of “feeling I had to buy this” does not happen often with me. And I hadn’t even thought about coloring.
The drawings of the fishes and under water landscapes where amazing. And since I am a water baby at heart, I said ok I’m going to get it!
I even had to buy a basic set of colored pencils, as I had none.
Jump forward 3 months now.
I can’t imagine all those years where I never thought about coloring as a way to relax and unwind before going to sleep.
It works magic! Even with just 15 minutes of uninterrupted coloring.
Coloring can truly also unlock your inner creative artist that is just waiting to be unlocked.
Since finding this new habit of mine, I have given away several additional copies to friends. They too have found a new way to relax and unwind!
I highly recommend it!
And it will bring out the kid in you again. Who doesn’t love that!
