Join Joe Sugg, our favourite YouTube star on a journey to discover the healing powers of nature in a noisy, digital world.

Having grown-up in the rise of the digital age and as one of the UKs biggest TV and online stars, Joe knows better than anyone how it feels to be overwhelmed by the world wide web and its endless stream of content. Experiencing feelings of anxiety and burnout, Joe has come up with his very own creative and practical ways to let nature in, that are accessible no matter where in the world you live, from the city to the seaside.

Joe's natural storytelling abilities will immerse us in a truly restorative read that shows ways to balance our time online with the outdoors, and grow happier, heathier and calmer by doing so. Alongside Joe's practical tips are his hand-drawn illustrations and personal stories of his journey to happiness.

Joe sows the seeds that will help make the most of the incredible, positive impacts nature can have on our mental and physical wellbeing, and that make it possible to live in harmony with the power of technology.
