Flow Magazine is all about positive psychology, mindfulness, creativity and the beauty of imperfection. We love illustrations and in each issue there is a gift made of our much-loved paper. In this Flow issue 24: What to do with a book? Hold on to it or pass it on to enlighten someone else’s life? Flow’s Astrid van der Hulst and journalist Anneke Bots reveal what they do.
American illustrator and regular Flow contributor Jennifer Orkin Lewis shares a drawing via Instagram every day. And often, it’s a painted selfie. If today isn’t going so well for you, just keep in mind that things can get better. It’s not that hard to learn how to go easy on yourself. Taking away someone’s sadness for them: you wish you could, but you never can. So, what can you do? Journalist Mariska Jansen explores the essence of consolation.
