Although summer is upon us and we find ourselves basking in the sun and enjoying fun times with our family and friends, I find that I'm far more stressed during summer work hours. Perhaps it's the heat, the pressure of deadlines, distractions, or the internal summer clock hits and my brain turns to mush. (Yes, I did just say "mush"). I needed to find a way to keep my brain on track, I decided to succumb to the trend of Adult Colouring Books. 

 

Before I continue, I must be truthful, I was that person who bashes said books,

" I don't understand how people can waste so much time or even have the time to use these colouring books, we're adults for a reason "

- these words did come out of my mouth on more than one occasion.

 

One day while shopping around in our local Michaels store, I was flabbergasted by the vast amount of adult colouring books that were on display. Curiosity stepped in and I found a clearance bin and decided to spend the least amount of money that I could to try this trend out. Part of me felt that it wasn't fair to constantly knock the idea of colouring books until I actually tried. 

 

After a couple of months of having this book staring back at me on my coffee table, I decided to bring it into work, I pulled out a page, packed up my pencil crayons and brought them in. Efficiency and accuracy is a huge part of my role at REM, and I quickly realized that colouring throughout the day - 30 seconds here and there - has helped me stay focused for longer periods of time, when working through a difficult task, the ability to step away from it mentally for a short period of time has helped me work through these confusing and sometimes daunting tasks. 

 

I thought I was going crazy, so I decided to do a bit of research and I came across this article posted by Huffington Post, and it all made sense to me! I wasn't going crazy! I would highly suggest getting one of these colouring books, they truly are great and help a lot, not to mention you can put them on your fridges and be proud!
