THE LIFE-CHANGING INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER.
MINDFULNESS reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to help break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and exhaustion. It promotes the kind of happiness and peace that gets into your bones. It seeps into everything you do and helps you meet the worst that life throws at you with new courage.
The book is based on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). MBCT revolves around a straightforward form of mindfulness meditation which takes just a few minutes a day for the full benefits to be revealed. MBCT has been clinically proven to be at least as effective as drugs for depression and is widely recommended by US physicians and the UK’s National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence – in other words, it works. More importantly it also works for people who are not depressed but who are struggling to keep up with the constant demands of the modern world.
MBCT was developed by the book’s author, Oxford professor Mark Williams, and his colleagues at the Universities of Cambridge and Toronto. By investing just 10 to 20 minutes each day, you can learn the simple mindfulness meditations at the heart of MBCT and fully reap their benefits. The book includes links to audio meditations to help guide you through the process. You’ll be surprised by how quickly these techniques will have you enjoying life again. CLICK HERE TO BUY!

:Â Life balance is a myth, and the pursuit of it is causing us more stress then the craving for balance itself.

:Â Screw your principlesÂ (they might be holding you back).

Social scientist BrenÃ© Brown has ignited a global conversation on courage, vulnerability, shame, and worthiness. Her pioneering work uncovered a profound truth: Vulnerabilityâ€”the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcomeâ€”is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity, and joy. But living a brave life is not always easy: We are, inevitably, going to stumble and fall.
It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject inÂ Rising Strong. As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of peopleâ€”from leaders in Fortune 500 companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parentsâ€”shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. She asked herself,Â What do these people with strong and loving relationships, leaders nurturing creativity, artists pushing innovation, and clergy walking with people through faith and mystery have in common?Â The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and theyâ€™re not afraid to lean in to discomfort.
Walking into our stories of hurt can feel dangerous. But the process of regaining our footing in the midst of struggle is where our courage is tested and our values are forged. Our stories of struggle can be big ones, like the loss of a job or the end of a relationship, or smaller ones, like a conflict with a friend or colleague. Regardless of magnitude or circumstance, the rising strong process is the same: WeÂ reckonÂ with our emotions and get curious about what weâ€™re feeling; weÂ rumbleÂ with our stories until we get to a place of truth; and we live this process, every day, until it becomes a practice and creates nothing short of aÂ revolutionÂ in our lives. Rising strong after a fall is how we cultivate wholeheartedness. Itâ€™s the process, Brown writes, that teaches us the most about who we are. CLICK HERE TO BUY!
