I’m genuinely surprised at how relaxing it is to colour. I sit down for my ten minute colouring break and next thing I know it’s been half an hour or more! I completely relax and loose track of time. The same thing happens in the colouring classes I teach at Cafe Mila...
Can a Colouring Book, and specifically what illustration I colour, help me decrease stress and anxiety?
Did you colour as a child? How about as an adult?! Not so common. Despite how ubiquitous it was in childhood, adult colouring is a very new hobby that has gained in popularity dramatically just this decade. Believe it or the first research on using colouring as...
I was listening to Rich Roll and he was discussing the concept of growth mindset with Tom Bilyeu. Tom believed from a young age that his talents were not fixed. He could become skilled at anything that he set his mind to and worked at. I think this is true - I just...

I find this works really well when I’m overwhelmed. It’s called “relief writing” and it’s like a brainstorming session for your feelings. We did this during my Doodle Colour Discover Workshop at Cafe Mila the other week where we were thinking about our plans for the...
Tea and biscuits were definitely one of my key ways of dealing with pressure at work. Actually, brownies, date squares and peanut butter cookies made a regular appearance too! There are better ways though. I wish I had some of the tools I have now back then. Melissa...
