A Breath of Fresh Air: How To Feel Good All Year Round

A guide to switching off from social media and finding contentment in the here and now.

Whether it's paddling a canoe, spotting swallows on a summer's evening, daydreaming on a deck chair, foraging for wild garlic, watching a film at an outdoor cinema, or recording the sounds you hear in the forest, there are over sixty creative and imaginative ways to encourage mindfulness and find calm.

Structured by seasons, with a focus on finding contentment in the natural world, the book also encourages well-being through physical activity, ranging from a wander through a bluebell wood to using nature's gym to practice yoga or balance on logs, taking up running, or playing in the snow. Beautifully illustrated throughout, and with lots of handy tips on where to visit or find ways to well-being, this is the perfect book for finding inner contentment in today's frantic world.
