book club: the monocle book of gentle living
One chilly autumnal afternoon in the huge Waterstones in Piccadilly, we found a manual for living the idle way: The Monocle Book of Gentle Living.
The book (gently) reminds us of small things we can do to step back from the auto-pilot, such as going to the local market, taking the time to perfect a recipe, or heading to the mountains for a week.
“…for making good things happen, doing something you care about and finding a slower pace of life that’s kinder to yourself, those around you and the planet.”
- Have a side project
- Get back to nature
- Send a letter, postcard or present
- Buy things once but well
- Go off radar (highly underrated!)
