Colour Me Happy!

Two weeks into the Happiness Project and I’ve purchased The Mindfulness Colouring Book by Emma Farrorons.  It’s the anti-stress art therapy for busy people.  


Adult colouring books are all the rage at the moment and what a wonderful idea they are!  I remember sharing colouring books with my two children when they were younger and often I was still at the table colouring long after they had lost interest and gone off to find something else to do.  What a great way to switch off for a few minutes, just paying attention to the present moment and nothing else.  Yesterday we (that is myself, my daughter and our friend staying from England) made a start.

Mindfulness Colouring2All three of us were itching to add some colour to the page.  This made me happy; just one thing – now I’m regretting passing on the huge bag of felt-tip pens I thought we’d finished with!

Life - part two; Australia. Having spent the first 39 years of my life in England, with two adult children who don't need me so much, a workaholic husband and a head full of stuff waiting to be unleashed, Waking the Wombat is my place to share life's experiences with you.

I’m working my way through Johanna Basford’s Secret Garden colouring book and it’s fab! I felt a bit of an idiot buying it until the girl on the check out told me they were the in thing for stressed adults.
