Colour your stress away

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

...And for those who can't relax with a book while in the air, here is a nifty trick to distress while flying. Simply get yourself one of those awesome adult colouring books and spend your whole flight colouring away.

Yup, according to psychologist Antoni Martínez, colouring is often recommended as a relaxation technique, since it enables us to enter into a more creative, freer state of mind. It also "brings out our imagination and takes us back to our childhood, a period in which we most certainly had a lot less stress."

So, if you loathe flying, have a hard time staying in your seat for hours or simply feel claustrophobic on a plane, start colouring!

(Here are 3 stress relieving colouring books that my friend Amy swears by, who is normally terrified of flying). Have you tried them yet?

P.S: The nostalgic glamour of travelling in the 1950s.
P.P.S: And tons more all things wanderlust.
