Mindfulness has been causing a real stir recently. Mark Williams and Danny Penman have found a wonderfully effective way of guiding you through meditation practices that start very simply and then build to help you tackle even the worst difficulties you may encounter. Right from the first breathing exercises you will feel a sense of achievement, and you quickly progress to breaking your cycles of anxiety, stress, unhappiness and exhaustion. These techniques open the door to improved health, well-being, contentment and new courage. It takes just a few minutes each day to follow this clearly structured, manageable eight-week (but flexible) programme, including a daily meditation from the accompanying CD. Supportive and straightforward, suitable right from beginner level, Mindfulness helps you to find an awareness unclouded by your thoughts, feelings and emotions. Step away from negative self-talk and let a sense of balance, wonder and happiness reappear in your life.
