Lucy Fyles, the writer of the blog Colouring in the Midst of Madness, has written a wonderful review of Being in the Now: 50 mindfulness quotes to colour and keep. She reviews colouring books from the mental health perspective and all of her reviews contain really thorough and honest analyses of the books. If you like colouring, it's worth following her blog as you'll get an insight into different colouring books and what they are like.
Here are some extracts from Lucy's review of Being in the Now:
"A second volume is in the pipeline and I, for one, will be very interested to see what it will contain because this is a lovely book with mental health truly at its heart. The level of intricacy and detail really varies so this is a good all-rounder that can offer up colouring for your good and bad days, those where you just need to zone out and those where you have plenty of concentration to work on more detail."
"I would recommend this book to anybody who is or wants to practice mindfulness and those of you who enjoy reading quotes and positive affirmations."
"I certainly found it calming and positive to colour and the quotes really did get me thinking about how I live my life and how my thought processes affect me. This is so much more than a colouring book, so what are you waiting for?! Start Being in the Now!"
