Colouring books have had somewhat of a reinvention over the past couple of years, as we have been fleeing to the shops to snap up ‘colouring books for grown-ups’. Fans of the craze have praised as them as the ultimate relaxation method, an alternative to meditation and research has even proven that they can benefit your mental health. The rise of colouring books seems to be part of a wider ‘digital detox’, offering an alternative way to switch off and absorb yourself in a creative task. The trend has also spread to the digital media world, as people have been uploading their coloured creations to platforms such as Instagram and Pinterest – with positive responses!
