Judging a book by its cover is frowned upon however this magazine has a beautiful illustrated front cover and it’s not just for this edition I am reviewing, it is a regular feature which intrigues and delights the visual senses before even opening the magazine.

The cover artist for this edition has been named as Sally Eford and a small bio has been included on the opening page – prints can be purchased at sallyelford.co.uk

The visual senses continue to be delighted with the use of many illustrations and photographs throughout the magazine.

The magazine is split into the following sections

  • Wellbeing
  • Living
  • Mindfulness
  • Creative
  • Escaping

It’s quite a new publication as the issue I’m reviewing is issue 4 first edition was published 28th July 2016. Back issues are currently out of stock in hard copy format. However January 2017 and presumably future editions are available to purchase electronically at https://pocketmags.com/search/breathe I’m hoping in time back issues will also be available here too but we’ll have to wait and see. Back issues are however available to download if you have a kindle and go to the app store. Search for Breathe Magazine and you will go to an app powered by pocketmags where if you are not already a member you can get a 14 day free trial to get the most recent copy of Breathe. Back issues on this service are 3.99 each to download to a Kindle.

When the magazine was first published they described the magazine on their Facebook page as

“Bringing you mindfulness for a calmer more relaxed you. More than a magazine Breathe is a therapy leading the way to a new You”

 This issue covers the following topics amongst others

  • Volunteering
  • The joy of dogs
  • Dreams
  • Detox
  • Smoothie recipes (yum)
  • Essential oils
  • Interview with Ruby Wax
  • Find resolutions you can stick to
  • Re-read with exercise for inner calm
  • Creative workspace
  • Calligraphy
  • Wildlife adventures
  • Finding space, make a haven in your own home
  • Feeding wild birds

 On the front cover there is a tagline “Breathe and make time for yourself” this is a wonderful tagline and something I am trying to incorporate back into my life. Being a mum and working full time can be challenging, it’s a great reminder that sometimes you need time for You.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading this magazine and hope to continue to find it in my local supermarket or newsagents. It’s a delight to read, a delight for the eyes and a delight for the mind. I look forward to the next edition.
