Join the calm revolution: inspiration and activities showing how absolutely everyone can achieve calm in everyday life

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 read in any order you like, encouraging every reader to find their 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.

Praise for Calm

Teach us to Sit Still made me laugh; it made me cry; and it made me seriously think about taking up Vispassana meditation
