'A Book That Takes Its Time' is an unhurried adventure in creative mindfulness. It's filled with bound-in postcards, mini-journals, stickers, decorative papers for collaging and many more surprises to encourage slowing down and appreciating the little things.

This guide is all about slowing down, practicing mindfulness and living a more thoughtful life and having fun in the process. But what is mindfulness? It is often defined with words such as ‘awareness’ and ‘living in the moment’. It sounds simple, maybe, but putting it into practice is no easy feat. We tend to race through our lives, rarely giving ourselves time to have clear minds. We often lose ourselves in our memories, dreams and thoughts. We spend time wondering why a co-worker looked at us a certain way, and what we should have done in a certain situation but didn’t. All of this thinking causes us to miss out on a lot of our lives. It’s like watching our lives slide past us, without taking part, and that is not a nice feeling.

In 'A Book That Takes Its Time' you will find the following paper goodies:

  • Notecards for your beautiful moments jar
  • The joy of one thing at a time notebook
  • Making a time line
  • Sixteen postcards
  • Mini-course in mindful analysis: 30 days of writing and thinking
  • Forty stickers
  • Poetry pictures

Plus heaps of other hidden treasures
