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.
Like a lot of people, I had the Headspace app, and sort of dabbled with it a little. This book really clarifies the foundations and process around being mindful.
It's written in a masterful way, simple language and analogies, to convey exactly what the author wants to pass on to the reader. There's none of that American style, self help book bu*****t either....it's been written mindfully!
I can honesty say that this book has had a very positive effect on me, I now understand the principles of mindfulness, and how to go-about practising it properly.
I think from what I've written above, you can guess I would recommend this to anyone that wants to start living their life in a mindful manner.
Big thanks to the author.
People rarely appreciate that they are a brain and the limbs etc of the body are there for purely supportive reasons. It is who we are and it directs us to who we want to be or aspire too.
Do we look after the brain, do we understand and support the brain?
Or, do we take it for granted and abuse it with booze, drugs, lack of sleep etc?
Read this book and get some great insight and knowledge about your head! You might even enjoy it
He takes you through the process step by step explaining things with anecdotes in homage to the teachers who mentored him. Although originating from Buddhist practice the word Buddhism I don't think appears at all.I have read it more often than I can remember and almost know it by heart. Andy's great qualification for writing this book is ,as he says, that he has made all the mistakes in teaching himself meditation.
