The Calm Christmas podcast is a cosy listen during the darkest season of the year. Bestselling wellbeing author Beth Kempton shares soothing wintery words from her favourite poets and writers, tips for a stress-free holiday season and advice for taking care of ourselves at this time of year. Join Beth at her kitchen table deep in the English countryside to explore ideas for a natural and sustainable Christmas, look into the origins of some of our most-loved traditions, and see how winter is endured and celebrated around the world. With new episodes every Thursday from late October through to the beginning of January, the Calm Christmas podcast is less of a countdown to Christmas than a travelling together through winter… So mark your diary and allow Beth to inspire you to let go of perfection and create a meaningful, nourishing celebration this year. There are logs on the fire, tea in the pot and gingerbread fresh out of the oven. Pull up a chair and relax. It is Christmas, after all.

Cosy and Festive
I’m really enjoying this lovely podcast. It’s so Christmassy and very comforting which is just what I need right now! I’m especially hoping that it will help me to make a plan for how to make this upcoming COVID Christmas feel special even though all of my normal festive plans have gone out of the window.
