Colouring for Grownups
at a hotel near Ronda
On a recent trip to the UK several things surprised me: the efficiency and kindness of the NHS when my daughter broke her arm falling off a chair whilst setting up a show, the smallness of everything compared to the wide open spaces of Spain, and Mindfulness Colouring which I stumbled upon whilst browsing in a bookshop. Something new I thought – colouring for grownups at a hotel near Ronda.
Mindfulness has been on my mind for a few years now and, when I can remember to do it, I find it incredibly helpful in quietening the said mind and restoring sanity in moments of stress. But colouring? Never one of my strengths or desires when a child, given my natural tendency to want to cross the lines.
But things have changed with the years I discover. Something extraordinary happened when I picked up a coloured pen and began colouring in a Mindfulness Colouring for Adults picture, I found that it truly worked and I heartily recommend it to anybody suffering from angst over Coronavirus, Brexit or Trump, climate change or the devastation caused by plastic on our Blue Planet. The reason it is so calming is that the individual spaces to be coloured are tiny so your mind is completely focused leaving no space for extraneous worries.
I have therefore put Mindfulness Colouring for Adults doodles with a lovely set of felt tips in each of our ample and quiet rooms. And, as you can see in the photo above, in the salon by the fire with a glass of wine. Heaven! Come and try it. You might find you enjoy it. Here is an example of what they look like.
