Zen as F*ck: A Journal for Practicing the Mindful Art of Not Giving a Sh*t

Here’s another pocket-sized book for colouring on the go. It has a flexible spine, so unlike some of the bigger, chunkier books, you can get right into the centre, leaving no patches uncoloured. There are 100 detailed patterns to get stuck into.

Coloring books had a bad rap when many of us were in grade school. Art teachers especially disliked them because they “stifled” creativity. Our parents, however, rather liked them — they provided quiet time when mom wanted a nap or a great back-seat activity on long car trips. We just saw them as fun.

But does it work? Can we really find relief in colouring carefully in between the lines? Hephzibah Kaplan, director at the London Art Therapy Centre thinks so.

Coloring is a low-tech basic but rewarding activity, and when an adult finishes a particularly intricate mandala or other design, there is a strong sense of accomplishment. In fact, many are framing their finished products for wall décor. And coloring book publishers are accommodating this by producing books that have card-stock pages just for that purpose.

Forget about the idea that colouring books are for kids. In a busy world, increasingly dominated by time spent in front of screens, grown ups are turning to the soothing art of colouring in. But the books we’re talking about are not reminiscent of the freebie colouring sheets handed out at chain restaurants that we remember from our childhoods. These are intricately designed books, some created specifically to help you de-stress and focus the mind.

This book by Richard Merritt features rather eerie and mysterious scenes and objects on a fully black background. The author has begun the coloring with all black, white, and red. But there are plenty of white spaces for you to add to the mystery with your own color choices. Some of the pages feature clocks, bridges, and playing cards.

7. Dream Cities by Rosie Goodwin and Alice Chadwick: £5, amazon

For detailed, intricate nature-themed illustrations with a few extras, Johanna Basford’s Enchanted Forest is a winner. If you’re after something creative that you can learn a bit from while you’re colouring, Field Guide: Creatures Great and Small is a good choice.  Moose Allain’s Fill-Me-In book stands out for its is randomness and brings something a bit different to the colouring book table.

“When choosing a colouring-in book with more complex or abstract images the convention is generally to keep different colours within different lines. This requires a relaxed focus where the outline is containing and the mark-making repetitive and smooth. So a bit like repeating a mantra where repetition is a means to relaxation, colouring-in is also a type of mediation.”

Intricate paisley printed owls and floral backgrounds provide quite a challenge for “artists” who want to demonstrate their “eye” for color and the love of owls – 31 owls in all in this amazing book. These, once completed, should be framed. The same author also has a similar book of cats.

According to Michaelis, coloring relaxes the amygdala — the fear center of the brain. This is an area that is stimulated when stress levels are high, whether from the demands of work or personal lives. Coloring, in effect, lets the mind get some rest. His counterparts in Australia state that it is particularly useful for clients who have difficulty with meditation and/or “shutting down” their brains. Coloring, they say, forces that “shut down” and has many of the same effects as meditation. Coloring, then, effectively allows stressed out folks to forget their problems of the moment and return to a time when life was so simple.

So, how many people do you know who could use some color therapy?

Enter Dr. Ben Michaelis, clinical psychologist, along with several of his Australian counterparts – the current gurus of the therapeutic benefits of coloring books for adults. What mom and dad know about coloring — of its calming effects — means that mom and dad should be coloring too. And now they are, in huge numbers! In fact, the adult coloring book craze has become such a phenomenon that large book sellers like Amazon are having difficulty keeping them in stock.

The perfect anti-stress coloring book for busy career professionals. The Mindfulness Coloring Bookis filled with geometric designs, patterns, and mandalas, this should be in every purse, backpack or briefcase.

Doctors and others who treat cancer patients are finding, at least with women so far, that coloring books appear to reduce both the physical and mental distress of cancer treatment. They are more relaxed, more positive, and complain far less of the physical side effects of treatment. An additional benefit seems to be a lowered heart rate.

If you have a great eye for detail and excellent eyesight, then Doodle Invasion is for you. 50 pages of artwork look as if someone had sat with the same piece of paper and doodled all day – but in a truly artistic way, of course. Now you can add the color to all of these doodles – good luck!

The vast array of adult coloring books on the market today means that anyone, male or female, can find some that are appealing. Here is a list of just some of the awesome options you have before you.

Hand Lettering 101: An Introduction to the Art of Creative Lettering (Hand Lettering Series)

Animorphia goes one step beyond just colouring in, and involves a search element to it as well.

There’s also spare space for you to complete pictures with your own doodlings.

Lauded as ‘not just a book, but a paper playground’, Fill-Me-In makes a change from some of the more ornate, pattern-focused colouring-in books. Put together by artist and cartoonist Moose Allain, the book kicks off in space, but then flies all over his haphazard galaxy, featuring little people and creatures in all sorts of scenes to either be coloured-in or finished-off. As an added bonus, it’s signed and doodled by the author himself.

She added: “Meditation, whether secular or otherwise, has known benefits to mind, body and spirit. When focusing deeply on a simple yet safe task, other anxieties become less present, less pervasive.”

What is more chill than colouring in cats? In this book there are 70 intricate, feline-inspired designs to be filled in. It’s just a bit bigger than A5 so be prepared for fine, detailed colouring. When you’re done, we like the fact that all the sheets in this book are detachable, so if you happen to design a particularly chic kitty, you can whip it out and display it.

Other psychologists state that coloring books open up the frontal lobes of the brain, with the inherent “demand” that people stay in the lines. These are the parts that control organization and problem solving. As well, it forces both sides of the brain to work together – the logical left side (staying in those lines) and the more creative right side (choices of colors, shading, etc.).

Ancient Hindus and Buddhists used mandalas as a point of focus in preparation for meditation. These are intricate geometric designs, often circular, that represent the universe. Carl Jung, famed psychologist gave mandalas to his patients to color, and documented the calming effects that the activity had. The Mandala Coloring Book contains 100 original mandalas for coloring, along with introductory information that explains the therapeutic benefits of the activity. Perfect for those who need stress relief and/or who just like great designs to color.

Technically, this is a colouring book and a ‘field guide’, so as well as 35 pages of animals – ranging from butterflies to bears – it gives you facts about the featured creatures and a colouring guide to tell you what they look like in the real world. Of course, if you prefer, you can just freestyle. The pages tear out too so you can display your artwork when you’re done.

From Mel Elliot, the artist who brought us Taylor Swift and Benedict Cumberbatch colouring comes an Eddie Redmayne-dedicated tome. Colour in the Les Mis star as you see fit, or be guided by Elliot’s funny captions. Sample line on a simple illustration of the actor looking suave in a tux: “Eddie is fast running out of awards to win…so design him a new one.” This is probably one for Redmayniacs only but it’s worth checking out Elliot’s other books if you’re looking for a fun gift.

Make Life Your Bitch: Motivational adult coloring book. Turn your stress into success! (Midnight Edition)

BULLSHIT: 50 Swear Words to Color Your Anger Away: Release Your Anger: Stress Relief Curse Words Coloring Book for Adults

Inspired by the likes of Moscow, Paris and the illustrators’ home, London, this book presents some worlds you’ll half recognise and other more fantastical cityscapes to colour in and make your own. The paper’s heavy duty so pens won’t bleed through and East London-based designers Rosie Goodwin and Alice Chadwick have included a little treasure hunt of extra images within their exceptionally detailed illustrations for you to find.

Adult Coloring Books Good vibes: Don’t give up : Motivate your life with Brilliant designs and great calligraphy words to help melt stress away. (Volume 16)

Animal Kingdom has sold over 500,000 copies and been translated into 19 languages. The appeal of her work is the intricate drawings that really immerse you in the world she’s created. In the case of this new book, that’s pages full of exotic creatures from parrots to plant life. The artwork’s exceptional and the paper’s top quality. There’s space to add your own details if you’re feeling particularly creative, too.

This is the follow-up to Johanna Basford’s mega-successful Secret Garden ((over one million copies sold and counting), and for our money, it’s even better than her first effort. Drawings of woodland creatures and greenery are super-detailed and the top-quality paper means pens won’t bleed through. The really beautiful, imaginative illustrations are the stars of the show here, but some colourers will like the quest part; readers must find nine symbols hidden throughout the book in order to “unlock” the castle gate at the end. If you like this one, her next book , an ocean-themed work, is out in October.

If you find patterns too repetitive, The Time Garden is an intricately drawn story by Korean artist Daria Song that starts with a Narnia-esque cuckoo clock and moves through page-upon-page of magical landscapes, drawn in superb detail. The cover’s also colourable and there’s a ‘to/from’ page, making this one a fab gift.

Gone are the Tupperware parties of last century. Today it’s coloring book parties — adults bringing their favorite books and sharing conversation and a glass of wine as they color together. What everyone who attended these gatherings seems to love is that no one has to be an artist, but they can be artistic with color and shading.
