Workers around the UK are swapping their keyboards for crayons, with almost one in seven using colouring books at work for productivity and relaxation, a new study has revealed.

A survey by global office supplier Staples has found that we’re becoming a nation of colourists, with almost a third of UK adults owning an ‘adult colouring book’.

In 2015, adult colouring books like Johanna Basford’s ‘Secret Garden’ rocketed in popularity, soaring to the top of Amazon and New York Times bestseller lists.
