Five of Amazon’s top ten books last week were colouring in books for adults. The popularity of these books has been put down to increased stress and anxiety in women. Dr David Holmes, a clinical psychologist, attributes the success of adult colouring in books to the need for our minds to shift the brain down a gear.

“… Colouring in is an ambient activity that gives the brain something simple to focus on, so it doesn’t become bored and frustrated, but without any complex thinking or planning to do.”
