I provide a brief review of the Festina lente bound, which provides a lower bound on the mass of charged particles in quasi-de Sitter spacetimes. From this, I go on to explain how from Festina Lente one can obtain an analogous bound for axions on the decay constant and instanton action. I provide a brief overview of some of the phenomenological implications of this bound.

Metadata are provided both in "article" format (very similar to INSPIRE) as this helps creating
very compact bibliographies which can be beneficial to authors and
readers, and in "proceeding" format
which is more detailed and complete.
