‘This book aims to demystify the links between body, mind and soul to explain how we can harness the power of mindfulness to help our homes become machines to support our well-being as individuals and that of the planet as a whole. It will help you look beyond fads, trends or shopping ‘must-haves’ influenced by the ‘anxiety economy’, and instead consider making slow, gentle lifestyle shifts towards a kinder, more considered way to decorate, curate, clean and manage your home. It will help you create a space that is what you need to be here and now, be that happy, joyful, calm or stimulated. Tuning into this, and taking the time to notice what is and isn’t serving us, is the act of mindfulness itself.’ ~ Joanna Thornhill
