Synopsis

Don’t just do something, be here. The key to happiness is being able to find comfort in this moment, here and now. When you are completely present and not distracted by regrets, worries, and plans, even for a little while, you begin to feel more confident and can deal more easily with everything you experience. This is mindfulness: paying attention to this very moment, on purpose and without judgment–simply being present with curiosity. This engaging guide, packed with simple exercises and endearing full-color artwork, provides a handy starting point for bringing mindfulness into your daily life. Chapters on meditation, yoga, and mindful breathing explain the benefits of these practices, and you are free to pick and choose what to try. There are quick exercises throughout, and a more extensive tool kit at the end of each chapter. The final chapter offers satisfying five-day challenges that map out ways to pull all of the book’s mindfulness techniques together in your day-to-day life. With the appeal of a workbook or guided journal, and full of examples relevant to tweens and teens today, this book will be your trusted companion as you begin the valuable, stress-relieving work of being still with skill.

Review

While this is written for a younger audience, I found a lot of value in this one.

If you’re completely new to meditation and mindfulness, this is an excellent guide for a newbie.

I’ve read through the entire book to get a big picture overview, but I will continue to reference this book and complete the 5-day challenges to make this meditative and mindfulness practice a daily thing and just part of normal life.

If you have children, I highly recommend giving them this toolkit to help them navigate life as a less anxious people.

Best,

Ashley
