Washing up is Good for you

Can washing up really be good for you? Can we discover a moment of insight, a wave of calm, a tickle of delight or a tingle of connection within our simple, readily available, everyday routine? Without needing to alter our entire lifestyle, can we unearth a fresh way in, hidden inside the daily and seemingly mundane? How might we flip our thinking away from resisting and towards maybe even relishing the washing up, the cleaning and the cooking? What might this do for our body, our mind and our relationships? One everyday activity at a time, artists, designers, writers, psychologists and speakers share their stories and experiences of the everyday. You will hear of family bonding over the washing up, wondrous rituals with a cup of tea and the creation of playful households. So, yes, we are suggesting that washing up can be good for you. In fact, even more than good for you! It can be liberating, relaxing, creative and healing. These ideas are deeply embedded in some of the world's most ancient wisdom. Here, we simply explore how this way of thinking can very easily become part of our daily doing.(p) 2017 Octopus Publishing Group

Spiroglyphics: Rock Heroes

Thomas Pavitte
Authors:
Thomas Pavitte

Spiroglyphics are a totally original idea from the twisted mind of genius puzzle-designer Thomas Pavitte! Spiroglyphics are even more incredible than anything he has done before. At first glance, spiroglyphics appear to be nothing but simple spirals. But if you look a little closer you'll see that the spiroglyphics are in fact two spirals, joined at the middle, and varying subtly in width as they wind to the centre. It's only when you pick up a pen and start to colour them that they come alive. As you fill in the lines you'll find yourself creating surprising, eye-popping portraits of musical icons such as:· David Bowie · Michael Jackson · Amy Winehouse · Beyoncé · Elton John Fun to create and amazing to look at, the Spiroglyphics will blow your mind, and make amazing artworks for your wall!

RHS Gardening for Mindfulness

Holly Farrell
Authors:
Holly Farrell

Gardening, like mindfulness, is a way of finding a sense of calm in an otherwise chaotic world, a simpler existence, even if it is only for a few minutes. Both forge a connection to the world around us, to nature and wildlife, which can bring pleasure and peace. In this beautifully illustrated guide to gardening for mindfulness, horticulturalist and mindfulness practitioner Holly Farrell provides a blueprint for a more contemplative way to garden, including projects, meditations and inspiration.Projects for the mindful gardener, including growing something from seed, planting a tree and creating a mandala, put the theory of mindfulness into practice, while plant lists and design ideas aim to enhance mindfulness in the garden through the senses. Beautifully packaged and easy to follow, this is the perfect book for keen gardeners, devotees of mindfulness, or simply those looking for calm in a busy and hectic world.
