The adult colouring book craze still appears to be in full swing. For some of us, however, the idea of returning to a childhood activity for the purposes of mindfulness is enough to upset our equilibrium in itself.
It’s not just that indulging in a primary school pursuit feels infantilising, it’s also the emphasis on the calming benefits of the hobby that sometimes gets our goat.
