Meditations on Nature & Flow
by Tessa Wardley
This series common theme is that mindfulness can be a part of many every day activities. In this title, swimming is the subject while others have been about gardening, baking and knitting. I like the concept that mindfulness can be present in obvious places that are not always considered access points.
I was especially attracted to this title because I am intrigued by everything that I have read about wild swimming. Topics in this book include Taking the Plunge, The Solo Swim, Reflections from the Riverbank and more. There are also further reading suggestions and a number of websites included at the end of the book.
This title is a favorite of mine in this series. I valued the author’s personal reflections and the inspiration that was provided. So, get out your suit, start breathing and enjoy mindfulness in the water…or at least reading about it.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Quarto Publishing Group for this title. All opinions are my own.

Hey there, love your blog!
Great post! I love how you emphasized that mindfulness can be integrated into so many different activities we do in our daily lives. As someone who finds wild swimming fascinating, I am curious to know if there were any particular techniques or exercises mentioned in the book that helped you stay mindful while swimming? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

Hi Charlotte, I recommend that you take a look at the book and see if it is one that appeals to you and has suggestions that make sense. I actually cannot go wild swimming where I live, so I was looking at this book and imagining what might be possible. It’s some thing I would love to be able to do one day.
By the way, I love the products on your website
