Walking in the Rain
9th October 2017
An inspiring book about the power of walking, talking and rediscovering yourself.
Walking is medicine for the mind. It helps us slow down and think things through. It also helps us perk up and generate new ideas. There are few activities as readily available and revitalising as a brisk walk, or as soothing and stimulating as a long walk. Wonderful things can happen when we set out on two feet.
In Walking in the Rain, one of the first two titles in the new Department Store for the Mind series, you will find stories from artists, designers, writers (including me!), psychologists and speakers who are inspired by the effect of pacing outdoors. You will hear of walks in the city, hikes through woods at dawn and epic adventures involving long journeys on foot.
This is a book for anyone seeking fresh air and ideas. For getting lost and feeling found…Read a sample chapter here.
Each book offers stories and ideas about creating daily habits that are kind to the mind, whether through our connection with nature, our creativity or everyday tasks, or simply knowing and feeling more accepting of ourselves. The books stretch the mind and soul, so that we may colour outside of the lines, experience the moments of wonder that are right there in front of us and occasionally venture out of our safe harbours.
