This was a very thoughtful gift from a friend who knows that I often struggle with stress and anxiety over a myriad of things. I took my time reading through this, even though I could have read it in one sitting, and I'm glad I did because it gave me a chance to actually try out a few of the many meditative mindfulness practices that the book provides.

The book seems to cover almost every possible situation where you might need a dose of mindfulness to get you through - everything from getting to

Useful to dip into and to remember that practice doesn't need to be at a set time every day but can be part of your daily life.

A beautifully designed to-the-point book on Mindfulness in an over saturated market. The space to journal thoughts and observations is a welcome addition however due the binding the book is very tricky to write in. For anyone looking for a more in depth book on the subject I (like the author) recommend Full Catastrophe Living: How to Cope With Stress, Pain and Illness Using Mindfulness Meditation by Jon Kabat-Zinn.

This would make a nice gift and introduction to Mindfulness.

Struggled to finish this book. Probably better as a coffee table book than as a read for those actually seeking help or advice.

O carte care te ajută să-ți definești mai bine rolul și locul în această lume. Cu ajutorul acestei cărți înveți să prețuiești fiecare clipă și mai ales clipa prezentă, te împrietenești cu propriul corp și propriile gânduri, pentru a avea o viață mai armonioasă.

A tons of cliché with a few good thought. The book design in the Hungarian print is amazing, I loved it.

Utter tripe. Don't bother. The format is almost entirely the same.

1. Have a problem.
2. Sit/Lie/Stand. Breath. Think about problem.
3. Problem goes away

By far one of the worst self-help books I've ever read. It aligns cognitive therapy with ~magical benefits~ such as no longer experiencing any physical pain in the intensive care ward. 

This books only saving grace was the beautiful use of negative space and illustrations by Marcia Mihotich - if the written work wasn't so preachy and I was to rate this book on aesthetics alone it would be a 5/5. I loved the texture, flat graphics and consistent and appropriately 'calming' teal. 

Don't waste your m

A soothing and serene read. This book shares many mindfulness exercises for specific emotions and experiences that one may have throughout the day, such as confrontation, sleepless nights, racing thoughts and preparing for the day ahead. I especially enjoyed the simple and soothing illustrations and inspirational quotes that reinforce the book's overall concepts of positivity and resilience. This is just the right book to dip into when in search of a mindful moment.

A nice easy read. Some beautiful quotes and helpful exercises for incorporating mindfulness into your everyday life. The author takes into account all sorts of situations and emotions that might arise, and provides meditations that will help you move through it without letting your emotions take over.

I bought this thinking it would be an interactive journal that I could write in. It is not. It is full of great mediatations for plenty of situations in your life.

pretty basic but actually relaxing and education in its simplicity

Оказалось, что это сборник упражнений, а не книга.
Упражнения довольно однотипные, кстати. Найдите 20 минут. Сядьте. Медитируйте.

Beautiful journal. The color and illustrations are very serene. Inside are quotes and prompts to find a less stressful existence and to be aware of the goodness around you. I love the lined pages for jotting your own thoughts and open area for any date, so there is no pressure to write every single day. Very nice journal.

A nicely relaxing read. It strangely gave me a great sense of calm by just letting the words delve into my soul. The breathing exercises and decluttering combined with calming imagery and easy to read text.

A nice easy introduction into the simpler side of meditation, breathing and mindfulness.
