It can get hectic with the daily schedule of work, responsibilities and no time for yourself. Yes, there have been times where one feels that urge to break away from the routine, but impractical would be spelling it out. What if there was a way?
How about taking it out through colours?

Colouring and drawing can take one back to simpler times, where everything was easier. This can help you calm down and also unwind to bring out your full potential. Colouring can specially bring you to a state that will help your brain to focus better and unwind as you are colouring. Art has helped to deal with stress, post-traumatic stress disorder and even depression. Colouring where one looks at the shape, decides on the colours, understands the size and so on, have shown to activate the same areas in the brain which reduce anxiety and stress.
