Interview with Clare Josa
Who is this mindfulness book for?
It’s ideal for you if you’re regularly feeling stressed and overwhelmed, but the thought of trawling through a ‘self-help’ book or making it to a meditation class fills you with dread. You need fixes that work now, not next month.
If you’re ready to dive in and take action now to turn things around, you’ll love these bite-sized, yet surprisingly potent mindfulness techniques.
How does 52 Mindful Moments help people?
Readers tell me these mindfulness exercises really work for them. They never get bored - you can just open the book at random to find one that feels right in that moment, or work through and play with one each week.
It helps you to let go of worry and to calm your mind, so you can think more clearly and feel happier.
And the magic of this is that the more often you play with these techniques, the more effective they become and the more quickly they will work for you, right when you need them most.
What makes this mindfulness book different?
You don’t have to go through hours of theory, because I have pulled out the key elements you really need to know, based on nearly a decade of teaching meditation and mindfulness to beginners. Yes, there’s a background to mindfulness at the start of the book, for those who aren’t yet familiar with being mindful. But then we dive right in with practical strategies that make a genuine difference - in the first few minutes of reading the book.
And you get a built-in support and accountability tribe in your readers’ club. You get:
- a bonus MP3 meditation
- extra how-to videos for the key techniques
- a discussion group where you can get answers to your questions and can share the journey with new mindfulness friends

Feedback For The Little Book Of Daily Sunshine
I love my Daily Sunshine messages! They're exactly the thing that is needed to jolt me out of early-morning-grumpy mode every day and make me think about what makes me and others happy. Thank you for them and bless you.
This little book does exactly what it says on the cover, it provides you with a dose of Daily Sunshine, no matter what the weather is like outside. I've been reading Clare's Daily Sunshine messages over the past years and they have been a great help through some difficult and stressful times: to cope with the falling out of husband and son without appearing to take sides; to maintain patience and hope during a very long and difficult house sale; to conserve and build the strength required to pack and move house; to keep smiling when things don’t go right. Thank you Clare.
I really appreciate the way the Daily Sunshine messages take me out of my head and into my present-moment experience of life. Sometimes when I’m lost in all the things I have to do, I read a Daily Sunshine message and it helps me re-focus on what’s important – on what matters; and that’s rarely the ‘to do’ list. It brings me back to ‘real life’.

What happens when the choices we make become a matter of life or death?
What happens when you get in the way of your happiness?

Message From The Author
Having witnessed – and been part of – so much Christmas stress over the decades, it was clear to me that few of us have enough time to read heavyweight ‘de-stress your life’ books at this time of year. That can wait till January.
What we need are short-and-sweet, but highly effective solutions: the kind of strategies that fit in with our hectic Christmas preparations and are easy to apply.
My aim is to provide you with bite-sized inspiration, to help you feel less stressed and have a happier Christmas.
Far from being lightweight, the techniques in this book are based on sound psychological principles.
However, they are presented in a way that I hope is much more digestible than Grannie’s mushy sprouts and I’d love them to leave you more enthusiastic about enjoying Christmas than unwrapping yet another of Aunt Mabel’s reindeer jumpers.
This book is not intended to be a permanent fix for all the stress sources and habits in your life. It’s Christmas and you’re busy. Permanent fixes can wait till the New Year!
You won’t have to wade through chapter upon chapter of research theories and case studies to uncover the precious stress-reducing nuggets you’re looking for.
