Take a deep breath. Feeling less stressed already? Bestselling author Shamash Alidina shows just how simple it is to master the proven techniques of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) in this engaging guide. Whatever the source of stress—work pressures, dealing with difficult people, financial strains, or family demands—mindfulness offers new tools for remaining calm in challenging situations and attaining a new level of physical and emotional well-being. In as little as 10 minutes a day over 8 weeks, the reader is taken step by step through a carefully structured sequence of guided meditations and easy yoga exercises. Vivid stories, everyday examples, and opportunities for self-reflection make the book especially inviting. Science shows that MBSR works—and now it is easier than ever to get started.

Critical Acclaim:

“Dr. Alidina has written a very practical and engaging guide to stress reduction! Extracting much of the essence of the well-known and researched mindfulness-based stress reduction program, he shows how to begin practicing and experiencing the benefits of mindfulness. For those who don’t have the opportunity (or time) to take the full program in person, following the wisdom of this fun-to-read guide can jumpstart the integration of mindfulness into today’s hectic and fast-paced lifestyles. Do yourself a favor and pause to really take in the message of this book and make room in your day to practice what is taught, and you’ll definitely be glad you did.”

—Steven D. Hickman, PsyD, Executive Director, UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness
