Earlier this year, one of our favourite childhood activities was reintroduced with a focus on mental health benefits for its’ now adult fans. Colouring books for adults started topping the “most popular” lists in bookstores because we all wanted to focus on our mental wellbeing and mindfulness a little more — though really we probably just miss the colouring.

Jumping onto this creativity-boosting bandwagon is Westin Hotels and Resorts, who collaborates with celebrated illustrator Johanna Basford for the creation of three bespoke colouring sheets for adults. The three illustrations are available exclusively at close to 50 Westin hotels and resorts across Asia Pacific and feature designs that reflect the Westin brand’s “pillars of wellness.”

“Colouring is a therapeutic exercise that has been proven to promote mindfulness and relaxation, and I hope to make each guest’s stay in Westin hotels across Asia Pacific a little more inspirational and happy through this collaboration,” says Johanna Basford.

For instance, the first is a heart-shaped design that focuses on the importance of sleeping well. Sprigs of lavender, cups of chamomile tea and bowls of berries and yoghurt can be found in the illustration — all from Westin’s Sleep Well menu designed to promote a good night’s sleep.

The second sheet is in the form of lush, vertical botanicals and similar to the first, features several fruits and glasses of fruit juice from Westin Fresh by the Juicery, representing it’s signature SuperFoodsRX ingredients and dishes that will give travellers a boost when on the road.

Guests at The Westin Kuala Lumpur can head to the lower lobby to colour in their very own illustration sheet to bring home.

Inspired by adventurous globetrotters, the third sheet is travel-themed. It is a charming myriad of digital gadgets, maps and other travel essentials that are essential to staying fit while on the move. A specially included item is a pair of running shoes to represent the Westin Gear Lending programme where guests can borrow a pair of New Balance shoes and clothing if they left their gear at home.
