One Minute Mindfulness

What is mindfulness? Mindfulness is an awareness of present experience with acceptance and trust. Here is the heartbeat of this practice, and in the mini-meditations and stories contained in this book, we are never far from that quiet beat.

So One-Minute Mindfulness is a consideration of that leads you into an awareness of yourself and the world; all that helps you live in the present; and all that promotes acceptance and trust in your situation. So yes, all that helps you live freely in the moment.

This is unfamiliar territory for many of us. As it says on the back cover, “Sometimes we can lose touch with ourselves so much that we don’t even know we have done so, until we suddenly realise with a start that we have just been going through the motions, without experiencing our lives.”

No more! Whatever our personal beliefs, let mindfulness become our friend. It’s endlessly challenging; but like all good friends, it is endlessly refreshing also.

The most popular review on Amazon for this best-selling book says: ‘This book doesn’t patronise or lecture you. It’s not one of those ‘self-help’ books that say the same thing over and over again… leaving you with thinking ‘If only it were that simple’. Each mini-meditation is no more than a page long, so it makes it easy to commit to reading one a day and it helps to re-focus your mind and bring you back to the present. If you are, like me, a big thinker and a worrier, this book certainly helps you to think in a different way – but also enables you to make the decision to think that way for yourself. An empowering and beautiful read! Without sounding too flowery, this book is changing my life.’
