Mindfulness–the simple practice of present moment awareness–can bring enjoyment and fulfillment to every activity, from driving to eating to working at your computer to spending time with family and friends. Among its many well-researched benefits: reduced stress, improved health, increased focus, enhanced empathy and compassion, and greater overall happiness and well-being.
Everyday Mindfulness, the new book by the author of the bestselling Meditation For Dummies, offers step-by-step guidance in making this powerful practice an integral part of your life. Chapters include “Mindful Work,” “Mindful Travel,” “Mindful Relationships,” “Mindfulness and Your Inner Life,” and “Mindfulness and Your Body.”
“Wise, warm, realistic, and so encouraging, this book is a rare combination of profound guidance brought into the nitty-gritty relationships, tasks, and stresses of daily life. It is direct and clear, with many striking insights and powerful experiential practices. Stephan Bodian can help anyone get the research-proven benefits of mindfulness.”
