Best colouring books

by Aimee Jakes |

It's completely normal to feel anxious, overwhelmed and helpless in times of crisis, especially when you're stuck indoors for the foreseeable.

Working with your hands is one of the best ways to soothe anxiety and eliminate stress.

Things like organising your kitchen cupboards, knitting or drawing, can really help bring you to the present and take your mind off the world for a short while.

One thing that works wonders for anxiety, is a good ol' colouring book.

Whether it's patterns, fancy fashion or swear words (spoiler alert), colouring carefully between the lines can be a lovely distraction.

We've found the best colouring books specifically made for adults (AKA not Peppa Pig themed) to allow your creative juices to RUN.
