This groundbreaking guide leads you through the most essential mindfulness practices—from breathing exercises to body awareness techniques—for improving your physical and mental health.
Written by a team of practicing therapists led by Sarah Silverton, this self-help guide reveals how mindfulness can help you self-treat depression, stress, anxiety, chronic illness, and childcare and relationship issues.

As we progress through each chapter, we learn how to become aware of unhelpful automatic reactions to our emotions, feelings and experiences. Rather than ‘reacting’ to life as we always have, mindfulness shows us how to observe our experience and as a result behave in a way that is gentler, wiser, and more positive.

Practical, accessible and featuring uncomplicated exercises to help the reader fully understand and adopt the mindfulness approach, this book truly is a breakthrough: the most friendly and engaging title available on the subject; and one which, like a trusted therapist, guides the reader through his or her problems and questions, anticipating their needs with kindness and compassion.

“This book has so much potential to help people and contribute to the flowering of greater well-being and sanity on this planet.”
—Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Mindfulness on the Go
