A humorous, uplifting look at mindfulness, from beloved illustrator Grant Snider.
- Find a quiet spot away from all distraction
- Listen to your breath
- Watch your thoughts float past you
- Forget the obligations of today
- Try not to consider your eventual decay
- Let yourself drift away
- Arise, connected with the Earth
- Awakened to the Universe.
In The Art of Living, cartoonist Grant Snider, author of The Shape of Ideas and I Will Judge You by Your Bookshelf, has created an all-new collection of one- and two-page comics that map his inner thoughts, poetic observations, and frequent failures at living mindfully. With both humor and a touch of reality, The Art of Living centers on mindfulness, but also empathy, relaxation, gratitude, and awareness-evergreen subjects that are more important and relevant now than ever. With a striking package, The Art of Living is an extension of the themes of Snider’s first two books-which explored the creative process and the love of reading-and is the perfect gift for those in a need of reflection, commiseration, hope, and a little extra self-care. Above all, Snider’s cartoons will inspire and encourage a more thoughtful way of experiencing the world.
