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.

Disclaimer: as of right now I read this book once and I have not done any exercises from it.

I believe it's a good introduction to mindfulness. It describes basic concepts, gives exercises to practice them and gently takes reader to application of those concepts in everyday life. The book also can be looked at as a long term action plan.

Questo libro rientra nella categoria dei manuali - come rivela il titolo. Eppure, nella sua semplicità, è utile e di facile consultazione. Tradotto in italiano - dalla casa Editrice "Essere Felici"- probabilmente con il traduttore Google, merita la lettura in lingua originale

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.
