I can heartily recommend this book by Andy Puddicombe for beginning a practice of meditation. Even the busiest business man, the overburdened mother, the constant commuter can find ten minutes to chill out. In a helpful, down to earth way he introduces us to this simple but profound practice - easing our racing minds and troubling incessant thoughts to an oasis of peaceful, restorative calm. A huge body of research now affirms the benefits of Meditation and Mindfulness - lowering of blood pressure, boosting the immune system, increasing clarity and creativity. In our stress filled, noisy world, with this practice we can create for ourselves, a tranquil stillness, whose benefits build up over time and continued practice. There's no 'mumbo jumbo' or strange postures, but a simple and straightforward method. Andy Puddicombe has distilled his years of meditation as a Buddhist Monk , into a readily accessible ten minute procedure, that anyone can do. I found it easier to do than previous attempts at meditation, and so am continuing with the practice. I feel calmer and more at peace despite a difficult current situation. Try it!
