Informative, accessible book on mindfulness,
This review is from: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy For Dummies (Paperback)
I highly recommend this book.I teach mindfulness in the workplace, and mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) works really well.
Until fairly recently, if you wanted to find out more about MBCT you had to trudge through dull academic texts (fine for practitioners, but not so good for end users). MBCT for Dummies makes MBCT easy to understand and accessible to all. It gives an overview of the eight week course and is packed with handy hints and tips.
This book gives people the tools to make big changes to their lives. At one end of the scale it could help you learn to manage your mind better, at the other extreme it could help you to break free from addiction, or cope better with to pain. It suggests pragmatic ways to improve your well-being and incorporate mindfulness into everyday life.
This book is proof (if you needed it) that Mindfulness has become mainstream. There's no sit down and meditate for hours on end (although a little daily practice goes a long way!)and its easy to incorporate it into the everyday things you do.
