Stillness in Mind: a companion to mindfulness, meditation and living
Stillness in Mind: a companion to mindfulness, meditation and living
by Simon Cole
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshingly simple approach to mindfulness that will work for anyone, 4 Dec. 2014
Mindfulness is something I have been working on for the last year or so. Finding a way to move thoughts quickly through my mind has proved quite a challenge. But it’s also something that I firmly believe is the key to finding true happiness. From the first page Simon’s easy writing style engaged me. Unlike many books I read, there was no judgement on what is right or wrong…just a suggestion of an approach that might work – if you want it to. Simon has a background both as a psychologist and a guy who runs meditation retreats. He wrote this book because he found he needed a workbook to go with these retreats and the workbook became so significant it became a book. I’m glad. I enjoyed this book immensely. I immediately began to integrate his ideas in working with my clients in my hypnotherapy practice, and also found I could apply them to myself. This was refreshing for me.

Let me give you an example: I often task my clients with mindful eating. Once we have removed the subconscious “thing” that has created an emotional connection to food, I want them to truly notice what they are eating for the first time. Cole refers to this lack of mindfulness as distraction. He gives the example of being given a chocolate. If you are given one you can truly enjoy it. But if you are handed a plate of chocolates, instead of enjoying the one you are eating, you are distracted by thoughts of the next one you will eat. I can’t recommend this book highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not many books change the way I think about my life these days. This one did, 10 Aug. 2014
One of the best books I have read in a long time (and I read a lot of books) It's easy to read and although it seems a little repetitive, it actually just layers up the core message. I have taken loads of soundbites from this book and now recommend it to many people.

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to fill, 10 Aug. 2014

I use it for my 6 year old daughter so she doesn't have to keep asking me for a drink. Easy to fill, holds loads and robust enough to not be knocked over. Brilliant

3.0 out of 5 stars Would be great if you didn't have to take the case off your phone to charge, 10 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's small enough to carry with you and has a loop hook for extra convenience. It gives out a charge fairly quickly although i've had other devices that are quicker. There is a hitch with the design where you can't charge if your phone has a case on. It looks like it fits but it doesn't go all the way in. You have to take your phone case off to charge it which is really annoying - hence the 3 stars

5.0 out of 5 stars Fits in my wallet, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is great because I can keep it in my wallet and don't have to worry about carrying cables around. Because of the flex bit in the middle it can also fit in awkward places

5.0 out of 5 stars Does what it says on the tin, 20 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is a robust magazine rack with a quirky design. There is lots of space. I guess the only downside if any is that the space is not divided

1.0 out of 5 stars It didn't work and I had to send it back ..., 20 April 2014

It didn't work and I had to send it back. I'm sure it would be marvellous if there was any sort of display on it

1.0 out of 5 stars Space bar too small and no shift key, 16 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is almost impossible to use. The space bar is way too small so in the end you mistype more than you do on the keypad on the phone!

3.0 out of 5 stars Great price but not very robust, 16 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I don't think this is the suppliers fault but the cables don't last more than a couple of months. I have the same problem with cables bought directly from Apple though so if it's going to happen I'd rather have a 2 pack for a great price.
