Colouring is a really relaxing activity. I do it to calm down and de-stress, as well as when I’m bored and just looking for something to do. It’s really easy to get stuck into colouring. You can colour for hours and not realise it – it’s really easy to get hypnotised by colouring!

You don’t always have to draw to colour – there are a lot of adult colouring books too! Sometimes, I draw what looks like a mess without taking my pencil off the paper and then colour in the gaps. This is a really fun thing to do, as each picture is unique. They never look the same.
Colouring was used by my hypnotherapist at one point. I would have to colour while listening to a recording. The recording ‘unlocks’ and changes the subconscious without having to think about anything or consciously listen. It was hard to focus on colouring at first when the recording started, but soon enough, I didn’t even realise the recording was playing.
I love the *Millie Marotta books, as the pictures are made up of lots of different shapes, so you can add so many different colours to a single picture!
