Colour Me Calm…

Adult colouring books have been some of the bestsellers in recent years… Is it anything to do with growing levels of exam stress?? At City University Library we wanted to join in the craze, and so have created our own colouring pages for you to escape into…

As Nick Scott points out in Director magazine, colouring is a major “anti-stress therapy for the beleaguered business leader”; allowing us to be a care-free child again, and also focusing our mind for new challenges. So it’s not just a bit of fun… Carole Tonkinson, publisher at Bluebird, Pan Macmillan’s wellness and lifestyle imprint, says: “Colouring is tactile and soothing. It’s creative, but not so challenging that it’s draining.”

So, go ahead… Have a break from the studies, and get colouring! Look out for our galleries to pin up your creations.
