Stress and pain are nearly unavoidable in our daily lives; they are part of the human condition. This stress can often leave us feeling irritable, tense, overwhelmed, and burned-out. The key to maintaining balance is responding to stress not with frustration and self-criticism, but with mindful, nonjudgmental awareness of our bodies and minds. Impossible?

If there were a single word that I had to use to characterise modern life, it would be “stress”. Everyone is stressed. We’re all trying to cram so much into our lives. There’s nothing wrong with achievement, but sometimes the overt busy-ness becomes an aim in itself. We’re so busy doing things, that we don’t have time or energy to reflect on the purpose of our activity; don’t have time to rest and connect. This can create all sorts of problems, from the existential – that of feeling a strong dis ...more
A companion reading for Bob Stahl's eight-week program on MBSR. I recommend the book in conjunction with his course based on Jon Kabat-Zinn, PH.D.'s work.

This is one of the two most effective workbooks I've encountered for the practice of stress management. It provides simple and effective exercises for learning and practicing mindfulness. I've taken a course in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (which was fantastic!) and I would highly recommend it--but for those who don't have the means, this workbook provides a very useful alternative.
I think that being a "workbook", the best way to read this would be in a physical form and not digital. If there was a way to keep the book interactive where one could enter data maybe it would be better. All in all, this book is a condensed "Full Catastrophe Living" by Jon Kabat Zin. Having read that book which is more detailed and much more extensive, I found this one repetitive and redundant.

Still the message and intention is good and the link provided for guided meditations is worth the pric
Great for beginners; too light for non-beginners.
Jammed packed with information and resources, this is a fine book that would be of help to anyone seeking natural alternatives for stress reduction. I love this book.
Good, easy to read intro book to practicing mindfulness daily. Includes lots of activities and a CD filled with guided meditations/ body scans.
I stopped ready this book.
helpful and practical
