I was gifted the Secret Garden colouring book for my birthday last year. The book is adorned with beautiful detailed art work for one to colour in. It is said that colouring in these pictures is a mindful way to combat stress and relax. I've been wanting to start colouring and I finally found some time over the weekend to start a page.
When I first started it was quite fun and reminded me of my childhood which was nice. After two hours (which felt like forever), I realised I had only completed a small part of the whole picture. I didn't think that it would take so long to colour in shapes.
Maybe it's just my lack of patience but the experience went from being fun to really annoying. It wasn't therapeutic at all for me. I just wanted to get the whole picture coloured in however each section took a while to complete. I gave up after finishing the well and a few plants around it. I'll gradually complete sections of this on days when I have absolutely nothing else to do.
I recommend trying out these colouring books if you are interested as it is pretty entertaining. But make sure you have a whole day free as it takes forever!
