If there is one thing I have learned is that sometimes my time experiences tend to be subjective and are highly influenced by my emotional state. My insecurities and fears about the past and what’s about to come also tend to make me not totally appreciate my current state.
But I have also come to realize that the key to going through each day, learning, and appreciating different things in life is paying attention, which is why I am now a big advocate for practicing mindfulness.
Yes, having meditation sessions has helped, but I recently discovered how to shift my emotional attention and thought process through mindfulness coloring books. This has been significantly helpful, especially since I am an art lover.
If you are on a journey to practicing mindfulness and have not yet discovered coloring mindfulness, or you are ready to explore, the books on this list may just be what you have been looking for.

I’ve recently had the pleasure of checking Roslin Designs’ new Mindfulness Coloring Book, and I can affirm that it lives up to its name. There’s a clear understanding of the importance of relaxation and stress-relief, evident in the carefully curated mandala patterns that the book offers for adults. The overall design, the quality of paper, and the diversity of patterns each contribute to making this coloring book a delightful stress-busting tool.
What particularly struck me was the thoughtfulness behind the designs. Each pattern is intricate yet not overwhelming, providing just the right balance to engage and relax the mind. Also, the size of the book is perfect for comfortable coloring sessions. It’s large enough to allow for detailed work, yet compact enough for portability.
The high-quality paper ensures that colors don’t bleed through and every artistic endeavor turns out as best as it possibly could. In my opinion, this book, with its affordability and excellent value-to-price ratio for 39 charming patterns, is not only an artistic gem but also a remarkable therapeutic resource.
