A Book That Takes Its Time

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.

A Book That Takes Its Time

Nowadays, everyone's time is so precious that we all want to plan it down to the second. We think we can accomplish more if we plan our time well: we can be good parents, good employees, good friends, and good partners while still managing to read books, see movies, enjoy the great outdoors, work out at the gym every now and then and, and, hmm. Somehow we believe our lives are more worthwhile when we do as much as possible.

We need more stillness, more downtime, more mindfulness. And that's what this book will bring you. In each chapter we aim to inspire you to make time. Time to breathe, time to learn, time to create, time to reflect, time to let go, and time to be kind.

A Book That Takes Its Time mixes articles, inspiring quotes, and what the editors call goodies -bound-in cards, mini-journals, stickers, posters, blank papers for collaging, and more-giving it a distinctly handcrafted, collectible feeling. Read about the benefits of not multitasking, then turn to The Joy of One Thing at a Time Notebook tucked into the pages. After a short piece on the power of slowing down, fill in the designed notecards for a Beautiful Moments jar. Make a personal timeline. Learn the art of hand-lettering. Dig into your Beginner's Mind. Embrace the art of quitting. Take the writing cure. And always smile. Move slowly and with intention through A Book That Takes Its Time, and discover that sweet place where life can be both thoughtful and playful.

What is mindfulness?

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. Mindfulness teaches us to be present in our lives, no matter what we are doing: when we are showering, eating or talking to someone. According to Dutch trainer and psychologist Roeland Schaddelee, it’s a way to pay attention in a curious, open-minded and non-judgmental way.

Flow readers about the book:

''This is really a book of joy. It is constructed in such a unique, creative and fun way. It is filled with journals, stickers, posters, cards, all kind of punch-outs. It is a treasure with more treasures hidden inside. You can’t get bored with it. And while you work on your mindfulness, you also work on your creativity. Because mindfulness and creativity go together. There are articles in the book that talk and teach about mindfulness. There are poems, quotes, even recipes.
