5.0 out of 5 stars A really practical and effective guide to improving your mental and physical health, 21 Jun 2013
This review is from: Sane New World: Taming the Mind (Hardcover)
Comedienne and now Psychotherapist, Ruby Wax deserves a Royal Albert Hall sized standing ovation for her new book.

Ruby talks with a deep and compelling honesty about her own struggles (not always pleasant) and how practicing mindfulness has made a huge difference to her own life. She makes mindfulness much simpler than many other speakers and authors. She removes the religious aspects associated with it, making it accessible to anyone of any religion or none.

Written in plain english with humour she gives a tour of the different parts of the brain. She lists the results of many compelling scientific studies that clearly show how mindfulness quickly brings about positive changes in the brain and the body.

Ruby lists many different practices and exercises that can help improve how we think and feel about ourselves, others and the world around us. Whilst some determined effort will be required, it is simply a case of choosing a few that you want to try and that you think you can practically do. I have used some of her 5 second mindfulness techniques over the last week and already feel a greater sense of calm.

Ruby gives us all some compelling answers to overburdened health services and budgets. I want every every GP and NHS manager in the country to read her book. I shall be recommending her book to many of my own coaching clients.

A big thank you to you Ruby!
