If the idea of that sounds good to you but the thought of looking out for a good first colouring book stresses you out, fret not.

The Mindfulness Colouring Book

This colouring book by illustrator Emma Farrarons has 112 pages filled with soothing patterns on ocean waves, butterflies, tea cups, cats, leaves, fishes, and other objects. This is a pocket sized book and is just the right balance between intricate and too simple.
