Summary

Penguin presents the unabridged, downloadable audiobook edition of Calm by Michael Acton Smith, read by Maria Teresa Creasey.

Trains delayed, kids squabbling before bedtime, endless emails filling the inbox: everyone needs more calm in their life. The evidence in favour of calmness is huge.

Practices like meditation and mindfulness improve life expectancy, productivity at work, health and even personal happiness. And you can reach calm any way you like: take a walk with nowhere to go, savour a chocolate on the tip of your tongue, plant a seed, doodle pointlessly, notice the world around you.

Smile, breathe and go slowly. This unique handbook is filled with activities, inspiration and clearly explained research. It can be listened to in any order you like, encouraging every listener to find his or her own path to calmness. Working with mindfulness gurus and neurological experts alike, Michael Acton Smith has created a project that will finally bring calm into the mainstream.
