Do all grown-ups want to colour something once in a while?
Probably not. But I know there are some who do. And I’m one of them.
I bet someone somewhere did a study exploring multiple benefits that colouring can bestow on a grown-up brain. I’m sure it explains it all – how colouring stimulates the right side of the brain, how it gets you more creative, how it heals you with the very essence of colour itself (chromotherapy is the word)… I’m sure it has all been done and I would love to provide you with the link. Only I don’t have the slightest idea who, where and when did this study, so if you are really interested, you will have to do your own digging.
Or has it only been done for children?
Anyway, if you are an adult and suddenly you feel like colouring something – it’s ok. You’re running a risk of your family looking strangely at you, but hey, if they love you, they will let you colour in peace.
Sales assistants in bookshops can always be told it’s for your nephew.
Or, if you have enough guts, you can say – grown-up, colouring and proud. Why the hell not.
