Turn its pages (made up of varying and beautiful papers) and indulge in the acts of reading, savouring illustrations and inspirational quotes, creating paper crafts and colouring pages.... and by taking the time to do so, experience a calming, a slowing down, and a sense of mindfulness to balance the rush of the modern world. From Flow, the ground breaking international 'magazine that takes its time,' comes the first big book in a publishing partnership that celebrates mindfulness, creativity, beautiful illustration, a love of paper, and life’s little pleasures. A Book That Takes Its Time is both a book about mindfulness and literally inspires mindfulness. It’s like a meditation retreat between two covers. You can't hurry through it; it's the anti-page-turner. It's a book that makes you stop to savour, play with, and appreciate all the lovely and interesting detours that hands-on activities provide. Read an article on the benefits of journaling - then come to 'The Joy of One Thing at a Time Notebook' tucked into the book. An essay on the power of being grateful is followed by pages of illustrated 'Beautiful Moments' cards. Suddenly being grateful becomes a habit. Readers will learn hand-lettering, the basics of collaging, even how to meditate while running. There's never been a book like A Book That Takes Its Time, a book that mixes reading and doing, to help readers live a more thoughtful life and have so much fun in the process.
