I have to admit I never tried to use those books for that purpose (when stressed out I’m not able to do anything, I don’t even think about things like colouring books), but I do like to fill them in my spare time to relax – it’s good to let your brain shut down for a while whilst doing simple, mindless tasks after a long and hectic day.

I’m interested to hear if anyone actually uses this method as stress relief and if so, does it actually work?
