A mind- body approach to taking control of your physical and emotional health.

Biofeedback is the process of training your body to control its involuntary actions, such as breathing and heart rate. Minor changes to these actions can significantly improve physical and emotional well- being. In Biofeedback and Mindfulness in Everyday Life, Harvard Medical School faculty member Inna Khazan pairs biofeedback techniques with mindfulness practice to address some of life’s most common ailments— from anxiety and fear to stress and insomnia.

She begins with a description of basic physiological information, explaining concepts such as breathing and overbreathing. In Part Two she dives into the practice of mindfulness. And in Part Three she zeroes in on applying this mind-body approach to an array of common problems.

Khazan’s approach outlines simple solutions for readers who want to improve the way they respond to challenges. She guides them through increasing their resilience and emotional flexibility while empowering them to take back control of their overall health.

Reviews and Endorsements:

"Inna Khazan brilliantly integrates two approaches, mindfulness, and biofeedback. A truly readable book—anchored in science—that explains how biofeedback enhances the self-regulation of the body and how mindfulness is the cognitive emotional approach for acceptance and resilience. This combined approach anchors the concept that mind/emotions/body are one. It is skills NOT pills. This is a MUST book for students, therapists, and anyone interested in reducing symptoms, optimizing health, and promoting resilience. It provides pragmatic practices that anyone can do at home or at work to increase well-being; since health is the integrating of learned health-promoting skills into daily life."

"Dr. Khazan provides an intuitive step-by-step guide for building resilience and emotional flexibility. She demystifies biofeedback and mindfulness, systematically teaches invaluable skills that don’t require equipment, and explains how we can apply these new skills to challenges like anger, depression, and pain. If you’ve always wanted a clearly written and engaging introduction to biofeedback and mindfulness for clients or students, your wait is over! This amazing book has earned my highest recommendation."
Fredric Shaffer, Ph.D., BCB, BCB-HRV, Professor of Psychology, Truman State University, and Director of the Center for Applied Psychology

"This book is simply brilliant! Inna Khazan is the world’s leading expert on mindfulness and biofeedback. She combines these fields in a remarkably clear and insightful manner, grounding all she writes in solid science and clinical wisdom. The book is at once a reliable guide for managing common problems such as insomnia, pain, anxiety, or shame, and an invaluable resource for behavioral health professionals. The author shows us how to work with our human physiology using easily accessible technologies—mindfulness and biofeedback—to live happier and healthier lives. Highly recommended!"
Christopher Germer, Ph.D., Lecturer on Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School, author of The Mindful Path to Self-Compassion, co-editor of Mindfulness and Psychotherapy

"Dr. Khazan is a master at taking complex subject matter and turning it into a readable, step-by-step manual that can be valuable for almost anyone interested in self-improvement. This book, Biofeedback and Mindfulness in Everyday Life, covers recent developments in fields as diverse as Applied Psychophysiology and Biofeedback to Mindfulness-Based Interventions, and translates scientific findings into useful daily skills. A wonderful resource for both clinicians and patients."
Richard Gevirtz, Ph.D., BCB, Distinguished Professor, California School of Professional Psychology, Alliant International University
