Publisher's Summary

Mindfulness is not about complicated and otherworldly woo-woo spiritual practices. It doesn't require you to be a part of any religion or a movement. What mindfulness is about is living a good life (that's quite practical, right?), and this book is all about deepening your awareness, getting to know yourself, and developing attitudes and mental habits that will make you not only a successful and effective person in life, but a happy and wise one as well.

If you have ever wondered what the mysterious words mindfulness means and why would anyone bother, you have just found your (detailed) answer! This book will provide you with actionable steps and valuable information, all in plain English, so all of your doubts will be soon gone. In my experience, nothing has proven as simple and yet effective and powerful as the daily practice of mindfulness. It has helped me become more decisive, disciplined, focused, calm, and just a happier person. I can come as far as to say that mindfulness has transformed me into a success. Now, it's your turn. There's nothing to lose, and so much to win! The payoff is nothing less than transforming your life into its true potential.

Sensible and practical

This book cuts through the fluff and encourages facing your emotions head on to achieve inter peace.
Instead of suppressing fears, anxiety, or frustrations... this listen offers solutions for working through difficult situations.
On my quest to bring peace into my life I've listened to many books that suggest if I do this or that I'll be in a happy state of bliss.
And I get that I'm controlling my personal growth.
If I don't put in the work, I won't be the best version of me.
Sometimes it's hard to be happy when bad things happen.
This book speaks to me on a level
where it's ok if I'm sad, frustrated or aggravated with how things are going because these emotions are neither good nor bad just something I have to work through.
These techniques helped to restore my mental stability and bring my awareness back to the moment and away from the chaos that surrounds me.
I also think the narrator was an excellent fit for this book.
For anyone struggling to find their ☺ place I suggest using this book as a tool to get to the next destination.
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Easy readable and motivational to help you get through life with an edge of mental state

I came across this book as I was looking at self improvement techniques. This book was certainly a easy read, I read the entire book without a break which has never happened before. As he speaks you get encouraged and want to learn more. Personally, I have not learned anything about mindfulness before I started reading this book. I got the idea that it's not that hard because the author gives you easy exercises to improve your mindfulness. You can simply be aware of these exercises when you are going through your day and use them as tools for an improved life and reaching your goals:)

Best way to get started

As someone who has purchase several mindfulness books; I should have started with this one. This is a great introduction to mindfulness meditation and learning concepts. I intend to use this audio book in my daily routine. I strongly recommended this book first before you puchase long winded books on the same subject.
