Get in touch with your mindful side with Project Calm issue 17

The new issue of Project Calm is packed with creative ideas and mindful features to inspire you

Published: January 1, 2020 at 4:19 pm

The long wait is over – Project Calm is out now in the UK! This issue's theme is 'rewilding'.


Editor Lara Watson says: "We’re doing things a bit differently this issue: taking a fresh perspective in so many ways, from seeing the world the Hawaiian way to rewilding our lives. It’s all about sustainable shifts and second chances – a theme I’ve wanted to explore for some time as it seems so prevalent in my own life, from the rekindling of my high school love to getting another opportunity to buy our dream home after we missed out last year.

"Often second chances can feel like they’re meant to be, can’t they? Elsewhere, our Travel section takes an unusual approach this issue – you could almost call it the antithesis to adventure! But maybe that’s exactly what you’re after? Helen Martin and Naomi Bulger write about the joy to be found in correspondence during those times you’re away from loved ones, Tracey Ellis shuns travel bucket lists and makes the case for the familiar, and Sian Meades-Williams’ beautiful celebration of the journey itself rather than the destination – on a romantic, long train ride – are a salve to jam-packed itineraries and check-lists. Enjoy the issue!"
