Join the Calm revolution. Modern life is hectic and relentless: trains delayed, endless emails filling the inbox, kids squabbling before bedtime...

This book contains the simple tools, tricks and habits that will change the rest your life. It is a practical and pleasurable guide to twenty-first century mindfulness. Regular meditation is medically proven to be good for you - it increases focus and creativity, productivity and job satisfaction, mental and even physical health. But in reality most of us don't have time to sit on a cushion with our eyes closed for half an hour every day. And many people associate meditation with hard work and huge lifestyle shifts: you might be imagining Buddhist monks locked in a mountain retreat and living off gruel... This is where Calm comes in. Calm is about simple, achievable habits that work with the demands of your busy life instead of pretending those demands don't exist. Calm does not require specialist training: it uses abilities that every single one of us is born with, like creativity, spontaneity and simply noticing the world around you. Calm is not a set of rules that you need to worry about following or breaking. It is inspirational, practical and non-prescriptive. Onerous, time-consuming meditation might seem out of reach but everyone can achieve calm - including you. Calm combines extracts from fascinating neurological research with wisdom from history's great thinkers and the real-life experiences of individuals across the globe. It demystifies mindfulness and shows you the many simple ways to be mindful while carrying on with your life. It is also a beautifully crafted object, filled with artwork and artistry, that will change your perspective by showing you the pleasures of the world anew. Take a walk with nowhere to go, savour a chocolate on the tip of your tongue, plant a seed, doodle aimlessly, turn off your mobile phone for five short minutes. Smile, breathe and go slowly. Michael Acton Smith has written a game-changing book, one that will finally balance everyone's need for calm with the realities of modern life. Join the Calm revolution.

In Calm is the Water, we endeavor to still the outside noises so we can listen to the sound of our own heart sound, our own being, and the heart sound of the Universe. Calm is the Water beckons us to let go of the stress and tension of life and take hold of the calm and tranquility that is waiting for us to experience and nurture. We all enjoy the high waves at the seashore but not so much when we feel like we are one in the proverbial waves, beating on the shore or on our very being. Therefore, we must practice the way of inner peace to begin to enjoy the calm and peace we know is there for us, if we seek it. Like happiness, we can create inner peace and know it will calm the waves in our hearts and minds to a point of centering us and, at the same time, helping us to be as calm as the peaceful sea. Calm is the Water provides tips and insights to assist you in gaining understanding, techniques, and assistance. It will spur you to a greater understanding of how we can travel from shore to shore, relaxed, calm, and at peace, no matter what is transpiring around us, helping us to stay centered, relaxed, and to enjoy the quiet, even as we enjoy the music and sometimes the noise. Calm is the Water will help us to obtain that quest of longevity as we calm the seas and avoid burning the bridges at the same time. Be at peace, OM TAT SAT!
