My presence into the world of internet has been reduced for the past week. This is because I have been busy utilizing my brain’s right hemisphere for the past few days.
No, I have not been reading a book but instead – believe it or not – I have gone crazy with a coloring book. I know it sounds like another childish silliness, but this coloring book seem to relax me.
Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Coloring Book by Johanna Basford has so far been completely entrancing! It has been the book that surprisingly calms me and at the same time enabled me to squeeze a lot of my creative juices.
I have yet to know or read an actual science that proves coloring in a coloring book makes the person happier or reduce stress. But for me, it has been an effective tool for a blissful meditative escape from stress and pressures of daily life.
And after finishing three pages by simply coloring away to my heart’s content, I was chilled out to realize that there exist some creativity in me. This book is so engrossing, it is like being so immersed in your own Secret Garden…
