THE LIFE-CHANGING BESTSELLER. MINDFULNESS reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that can be incorporated into daily life to help break the cycle of unhappiness, stress, anxiety and mental exhaustion and promote genuine joie de vivre. It's the kind of happiness that gets into your bones. It seeps into everything you do and helps you meet the worst that life can throw at you with new courage. The book is based on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). MBCT revolves around a straightforward form of mindfulness meditation which takes just a few minutes a day for the full benefits to be revealed. MBCT has been clinically proven to be at least as effective as drugs for depression and it is recommended by the UK's National Institute of Clinical Excellence - in other words, it works. More importantly it also works for people who are not depressed but who are struggling to keep up with the constant demands of the modern world. MINDFULNESS focuses on promoting joy and peace rather than banishing unhappiness. It's precisely focused to help ordinary people boost their happiness and confidence levels whilst also reducing anxiety, stress and irritability.

Alicia on
Probably like many people, I had a vague idea of what meditation and mindfulness were before reading this book but didn't really understand them properly. This book explains mindfulness and its benefits very clearly and really shows you how regular practice of meditation can help you deal with the stresses of everyday life. It is particularly useful that the book provides an 8 week program of different levels or types of meditation because this really gives you a sense that it is something practical that can bring about change. This seems to be what differentiates this book from the other books on meditation that I looked at. The guided meditations on the accompanying CD are great and have so far been easy to follow and I look forward to completing the program. Over all, it seems like a really great book if you want to learn about the benefits of meditation and mindfulness.

I recommend this book with accompanying CD. It provided me with very simple but effective techniques to calm my mind. I am learning to let go of the past and allow the future to take its course. From meditation #2, I noticed that this mindfulness meditation really did free up more time despite my taking time out of my day in order to practise it! I'm currently at Meditation #4 of 8. Each week, I'm excited about the revelations which unfold and am enjoying simply breathing again.
Sandra on
Excellent book...meditation is something I thought was religious but while it can be linked to that, this book is about controlling your thoughts which make you feel the way you do, but the thoughts themselves are just what you think and are they real? Recommend you read it.
Debbie on
Wonderful, practical and easy to read, understand and implement into one's daily life. And it works! The author's have somehow captured the essence of mindfulness in such a simple and clear way that truly is very easy to follow and does not require a lot of time. Very small changes in one's habits and lifestyle can have significant impact on one's wellbeing. I have recommended this book to many family and friends. One of the best self help books that I have read in a long time if not the best.
