In high school I started reading Og Mandino. He set the bar for self-help books. By my late twenties I was discouraged because each of the books seemed to have an underlying message that personal development was about changing. I liked myself just fine. I just wanted to improve on my strengths and minimize my weaknesses. Now, Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies is launched and I love it!
A professional counselor a few months back suggested I use the Mindfulness meditation app. As I did and we discussed the journey, I realized the key is acceptance rather than the quest to constantly try to change. Acceptance is the key, change may or may not come down the line. It’s an invitation to accept your inner self. Once we do this there is a balance.
Balance in life helps us live in the moment. The Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies is a step-by-step guide on implementing the lessons of the book into practice. It’s filled with hands-on exercises and techniques to help you live in the present, let go of the negative, the distracting and judgmental thoughts that keep us from achieving a greater happiness and contentment in our life.
Mindfulness can be used to overcome depression, anxiety, stress, fatigue and more. It promotes well-being and improves the quality of our day to day life.
This is a great book that gives the reader the tools needed to pay attention to the present without judgment. It stimulates mindful growth and begins the journey of not change, but acceptance. Intentionally paying attention to the present moment and experiencing it with compassion, curiosity, acceptance and openness.
