Modern life is hectic and relentless: trains delayed, endless emails filling the inbox, kids squabbling before bedtime, endless to-do lists… There has never been a more important time to rediscover your pause button.

Absolutely everyone can achieve calm – including you – and in this book you’ll learn how to take back a little bit of peace, space and all-important time for yourself. Using a mixture of creative prompts, activities, instructions and inspiration, this wonderful book will open your eyes to the pleasure and richness of your everyday life.

Take a walk with nowhere to go, savour a chocolate on the tip of your tongue, get lost in a maze, pick a leaf or press a flower, turn off your phone for five short minutes. In short, this book is an inspirational, practical and pleasurable guide to twenty-first century mindfulness. It consists of simple tools, tricks and habits that will change the rest of your life and contains no rules – you make it whatever you want it to be. 

This book has eight sections -Nature, Sleep, Travel, Relationships, Work, Children, Creativity and Food – but it isn’t designed for you to read in a linear way. You can dip in and out of it, try the exercises you like the look of, or leaf through it when you’re feeling overwhelmed.

Calm the mind and change the world!
