What prevents people from making meaningful changes and achieving their dreams? For many, worry, fear, or negativity are stumbling blocks that can be extraordinarily difficult to overcome. This effective workbook provides a blueprint for using mindfulness to start living life to the fullest. The book is packed with stories, examples, "Try This" exercises, planning tools, and meditation and acceptance practices that build self-knowledge and self-compassion. Armed with a deeper understanding of what they really value and how anxiety is holding them back, readers are guided to take a personalized path toward greater emotional freedom. Purchasers can download and print additional copies of the worksheets and forms; audio downloads of the meditations are provided at the companion website.
