Breathe Magazine Review

29 May 2018

Although I feel like I never have enough time to fully immerse myself in mindfulness, it is something I try and make a part of my everyday life, if only to ease the strain of my anxiety and depression. One of the ways I find easiest when it comes to being more mindful is choosing to consume media which is more beneficial for my mind and soul. This includes reading; reading more, reading broader topics and reading books and magazines specifically tailored to mindfulness, just like Breathe magazine.

I first came across Breathe magazine last summer, it caught my eye because as you can see, the covers feature incredibly beautiful illustrations. Although a little more expensive than I'd usually pay for a magazine, at £5.99 an issue, I was intrigued and decided to pick up my first copy - I've been hooked ever since.

Breathe magazine features topics and articles that centre around helping you relax and become calmer, a getaway from everything which can make life a less positive place to be both daily and in the long term. The magazine is split into five sections each concentrating on something different; wellbeing, living, mindfulness, creativity and escape. Breathe helps you make more time for yourself and that's something Breathe has certainly motivated me to do more often.

There are thoughtful features, many of which make me nod my head in agreement as I think to myself "Yes, this is exactly how I feel!" and some which give me ideas of things I can change to make a positive impact on my life. There are often little creative spaces, craft projects and activities for you to take part in, which can be perfect when you're looking for something quiet to do that is stress-free and relaxing.

I always look forward to the new issue coming out each month and it's lovely to sit down with a cup of tea and take some time for myself, browsing through the articles and I do genuinely find myself feeling calmer when reading Breathe magazine. It's my little monthly treat and I also love the special edition issues Breathe bring out every few months, which include yearly planners and list journals.

If you're looking for an easy way to bring more mindfulness into your life on a daily basis, Breathe magazine is definitely worth adding to your reading list.
