This review is from: Get Some Headspace: 10 Minutes Can Make All the Difference (Paperback)
I read this book about a year ago after reading another book on Mindfulness called "The Mindfulness Manifesto".
I found Get Some Headspace to be easy to read and generally entertaining, and it gave me a good introduction to Mindfulness and meditation. I have been practising meditiation since. It is a long and sometimes difficult journey, but I can honestly say that it has changed me for the better. I am a bit calmer and less of a slave to my emotions, and am also able to stop and appreciate things a bit more. There is still a long way to go, and I couldnt tell you exactly how mindfuless has made a difference, but it has. I would say that somehow it has increased my self-awareness, and therefore given me more choices about what I do and how I behave in certain situations. The start of that was reading this book and also The Mindfulness Manifesto (and I should probably give Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Dummies a mention too, as that helped me at times).
I would therefore have to say this this book is well worth the money. I have been following the guided meditations on the Headspace website for some time now, and these are good also in my opinion. However only the first 10 are free, just to make everyone aware.
So for me, this book was the start of a difficult but rewarding journey that will probably go on for the rest of my life.
