Mindfulness is the easy, accessible way to gently let go of stress and live in the moment. Evolving from Buddhist philosophy and academic research into stress reduction, mindfulness is the gentle way to manage the modern world--without chanting mantras or finding special time to meditate. By learning to become mindful in your approach to living, and integrating simple practices into your day, you can find freedom from stress and over-thinking.
The Mindfulness Bible presents the history and pioneers of mindfulness, along with charting the ways in which it is applied as a therapy, such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindful Compassion, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACCT). Included are more than 50 key mindfulness techniques and practices: you can learn to eat mindfully to manage weight, "scan" your body, or try a ten-minute sound meditation for calm.
With this complete 400 page guide, it's time to let go of worry and feel more joy in everyday life. This volume includes:
• More than 50 easy exercises to try
• Daily and weekly practices
• The latest in Mindfulness research
