By chance I came across this book and I am glad I did!
The first chapters elaborate on the why and how Mindfulness can help you to better manage your inner critical voices as well as it helps you to understand how these thoughts occur, and that you are not the only one with (critical) thoughts.
The next chapters will guide you through an 8 week course of Mindfulness, including the tracks on the accompanying CD. There are many Mindfulness apps on the market, but for me personally, it was especially important what each mindfulness track/training was trying to teach you.
I have not been very good at doing the daily mindfulness trainings, let alone completing the training week by week. I started the book/8 week course about 6 months ago and I have just finished week 5 - BUT I started to improve and feel better very soon after week 1 or 2. If you can finish it as recommended in the book, great! If not, and like me you do it your own pace - you will still feel a difference!
What is the secret of succeeding like this? I believe it is the fruit of one of the main practices of mindfulness: compassion/ self-compassion. The authors have put themselves completely in the position of the reader and worked from that standpoint with their head and their heart.
Before I was using meditation for just relaxing - which is fine if that is what you most need. But now I feel I am growing. I am grateful for finding this book although I did not even know I was looking.
This book surprised me, it has so much about me and my life in it at the moment. It has made me think why, it has taken me so long to
Realise I was in the exhaustion funnel.
I have started to us the headspace app to metitate daily and bring into my life some of the practices from the book.
I'm only half way through and I'm still stuck in week 1 but this time I will persevere and I feel more calm already even though I've missed quite a few days. Also see Mark William's lectures on youtube...he's such a kind and understanding man and his lectures are quite amusing.
