What the book is: Weekly mindfulness meditations and activities. 

My Review: 

Throughout the book there are beautiful illustrations. The book has weekly activities to do and there is a reflect page ever so often. I like the size of the book (bigger than A5 size). I'm planning to use this book along with my journal and I like how its weekly as its easier to do that way. 
I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys this sort of thing.

My Review: 

I really love this book. I love the front cover, when I see it or pick it up it gives me a warm feeling. 

The book has 8 sections:
· Nature
· Work
· Creativity
· Children
· Travel
· Relationships
· Food
· Sleep

The quality of the book is really good too. Feels great. I have only read some pages and the pages I have read, have really made me smile and think. I believe that there is an App to download on your phone to go along with this but I have not got around to looking at it. The illustrations are just beautiful. Also has quotes and stories inside the book. You can dip in and out of the book whenever you feel like it. It has a bookmarker ribbon thing which I love! I really do love this book. I think everyone needs a copy.

My Review: 

Cute little book to follow along each day. Some of the ideas are easy to do and some ideas don't fit into my life, but I just skip those. I think its nice to have a reminder of some things you can do in everyday life.  There are some quotes along the way too.
