Book Description

1 Jan 2010
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? Actually, it's easier than it seems. In just weeks, you can learn mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), a clinically proven program for alleviating stress, anxiety, panic, depression, chronic pain, and a wide range of medical conditions. Taught in classes and clinics worldwide, this powerful approach shows you how to focus on the present moment in order to permanently change the way you handle stress. As you work through A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook, you'll learn how to replace stress-promoting habits with mindful ones-a skill that will last a lifetime.

Mindfulness is paying close attention to whatever you experience in the here and now. It's does not necessarily mean doing things slowly, it simply means cultivating nonjudgmental awareness of your life one moment and one breath at a time.
Bob Stahl and Elisha Goldstein's insightful and practical exercises in "A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook" brings mindfulness into your daily life. Their helpful step-by-step training includes mindful breathing, eating, walking, self-inquiry, interpersonal communication, meditation and rest. The workbook provides a perfect companion to Jon Kabat-Zinn's book "Full Catastrophe Living." Kabat-Zinn, a molecular biologist with a long-term meditation practice, founded the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) program at the University of Massachusetts Medical Center in 1979. Today there are over 250 hospitals around the country and many more around the globe who use the mindful-based therapies. Unlike concentration meditation where the focus is on a mantra or concept
mindfulness meditation focuses on the body and mind in the present.
The Mindfulness practice, originally an ancient Buddhist meditative discipline, is not only used for mental and emotional well being today but also helps people deal with stress, pain and illness.
Mindfulness flourishes when the following eight attitudes are present: Beginner's mind, non-judgment, acknowledgement, non-striving, equanimity, letting be, self-reliance and self-compassion.
Stahl and Goldstein say you can't always control or eliminate stressors but you can engage with them differently. The answer isn't to turn away but towards the mind traps like negative self talk, interpretations and thought patterns.

I love this book.

Before this I was having problems with stress and depression upon waking but after practising the step by step guide I am able to have much more peaceful days. The walking meditation and the breathing meditation are especially powerful when used first thing in the morning.

I recommend mindfulness in the morning as it sets a pattern of thinking for the rest of the day. I also try to do a meditation before bed which helps me sleep.

Well written and well explained.

4.0 out of 5 stars A practical and comprehensive workbook. 13 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I bought the book to assist me in introducing mindfulness in my work with patients in palliative care and neurological rehab. It appears to cover everything that I need. It's worth noting that there is a link to the audio files that are included in the CD that accompanies the paper version. Other reviews state that the audio link is not there but it appears to have been added since those reviews were posted. I've checked the link and downloaded all the files: they're fine.

The book itself covers all of the commonly-used aspects of mindfulness practice from the raisin exercise to the check-in, body scan, breathing meditations and yoga practices. The format is designed to be accessible to the general public and, being accessibly written, includes many resources that clinicians can use with patients as the basis of treatment programmes or for patients' self-management guides, including reflective exercises and journals. It seems to contain everything I need for working with my clients in an easy-to-understand and easy-to-use format.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mindfulness based stress reduction workbook 30 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
The book should link to audio links which are an important aspect of the workbook program. It does not. Amazon say that its a known problem and that they will make this clear in the product description. The workbook is really a good buy but the store admin needs to get this type of problem resolved. It does not appear at the time of writing this review that an attempt has been made to make it clear to customers that there is a problem.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent workbook 7 Dec 2011
By jenifos
This is an excellent workbook. It is clearly written and guides the reader through the principles behind mindfulness, its benefits and practical exercises and encourages you to journal your own experiences and reflections. It has been a helpful resource for my own practice of mindfulness and also as a resource in my clinical practice.
