Mindful Thoughts for City Dwellers: The Joy of Urban Living by Lucy Anna Scott
This book – small enough to keep in your pocket – reminds us that peace can, after all, be found in London or any big city. Amid high-rise buildings that one of Lucy’s friends calls ‘mountains’ you can still mark the seasons, notice the moon and live consciously.
Savour the scarcity of trees, discover independent shops and landmarks (like vintage shops and historical places of interest), be compassionate to strangers and see how that helps you and them, discover a pop-up garden, let the rain soothe you … and more. Have this gem of a book by your bedtime for quietening your thoughts and be that better person who takes life at a more considered pace.
