'It's fantastic ... Exactly the book that everybody needs...' Simon Mayo
_____

Sometimes we all need a little reminder that it's going to be okay... Open The Cabinet of Calm to discover a comforting word that's equal to your troubles.

The Cabinet of Calm has been designed to be picked up whenever you need a moment of serenity. Just select the emotion listed that reflects whatever you're feeling and you'll be offered a matching linguistic remedy: fifty-one soothing words for troubled times.

These kind words - alongside their definitions and their stories - will bring peace, comfort and delight, and provide fresh hope.

Written with a lightness of touch, The Cabinet of Calm shows us that we're not alone. Like language, our emotions are universal: someone else has felt like this before and so there's a word to help, whatever the challenge.

So much more than a book of words, The Cabinet of Calm will soothe your soul and ease your mind. It's the perfect gift.

From inside The Cabinet Of Calm...

'RESPAIR': a word for a renewed or reinvigorated hope, or a recovery from anguish or hopelessness.

'WORLDCRAFT': a collective term for the unique skills, wisdom and experience that an older person has amassed in their lifetime.

'MELIORISM': the belief that all things, no matter how bad, can always be improved - given enough determination from people willing to improve them.

'SYMMACHY': the act of joining or working together to produce a stronger force than could ever be managed individually - especially in order to overcome something that affects us all.
