"Want a happier, more contented life? I highly recommend the down-to-earth methods you'll find in Mindfulness. Professor Mark Williams and Dr Danny Penman have teamed up to give us scientifically grounded techniques we can apply in the midst of our everyday challenges and catastrophes." Daniel Goleman, bestselling author of Emotional Intelligence
Life can be relentless, frantic and exhausting - but it doesn't have to be this way.
This is an introduction to Mindfulness, which 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. Mindfulness is based on mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), which is recommended by the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence and is as effective as drugs for preventing depression. But, more importantly, it also works for the rest of us who aren't depressed but are struggling to keep up with the constant demands of the modern world.
By investing just a few minutes each day, you can learn the simple mindfulness meditations at the heart of MBCT. This audio edition is an introduction to the technique which will give you the tools to put you back in control and able to enjoy life again.
This audiobook contains 37 chapters. Chapters 1-28 explain what mindfulness is and how it works, while the 8 guided meditations are placed at the end (Chapters 29-37) for ease of repeated practice.
