I can see how these are relaxing but... definitely not for me. I received this as a gift, along with a nice set of coloring tools and I just couldn't sit still long enough to finish. I'm more of an active outdoors person, so after a day of using physical energy, and when I want to relax, I want a cup of coffee and a good view and literally- do nothing. Not something requiring precision and using my hands. That's just me, I guess.
