5.0 out of 5 stars Short and effective, 16 Feb. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The One-Moment Master: Stillness for People on the Go (Mass Market Paperback)
There are less than 200 short-ish pages to the book, but as with anything of this kind you need to spend time doing, not just reading.

In this case the doing is very straightforward, consisting of a series of one-minute breathing/meditation exercises, which are explained as part of an articulate and interesting overall narrative.

A couple of weeks after buying this book and going through it intermittently on crowded commuter trains, I checked my blood pressure at home. Finding it rather above my trend, I did a "portable minute" and found my BP had come down to below trend. I've kept measuring the effect and typically my systolic rate comes down about 10 points, though both my diastolic and pulse rates remain about the same, going up or down a point or two.

I'm not passing this experience on in order to recommend the book as a cure for high blood pressure, but to point out that the effects of this easily-mastered technique are clearly not "just in the head".

I remain happily surprised at how many spare minutes there can be in even a hectic day, and what a bonus each can be.
