8 Colouring Books For Adults That Will Keep Any Montrealer Entertained For Hours
  • In 2020, it's a well-known fact that colouring books are no longer just for children.
  • Us, as adults, deserve the relaxing experience of spending hours flipping through pages and filling them in with the colours of the rainbow.
  • So, we've made a list of eight books Montrealers can get themselves to colour their days away in!

I've said it once and I'll say it again: colouring is not just for children. And I can promise that the eight colouring books for adults on this list will occupy your time for days on end. These books will also be the perfect go-to whenever you're feeling stressed.

Colouring is an activity that doesn't require a lot of concentration, so you can do other quiet and interesting things at the same time, like listening to an audiobook or doing mindfulness meditation. Or, you can just do it on its own and get fully invested — the choice is yours.

Plus, it allows you to express your creativity and perform a satisfying task that keeps you away from your smartphone or TV screen, at least for a little while. That's a win in itself.

While binge-watching everything on Netflix is always a good time, sometimes you need to give your mind a break and do a little technology detox. And colouring is a perfect alternative.

So, here are some colouring books you can order for yourself to help lower your stress level while having a good time alone with your thoughts.
