Mindfulness is a form of mental training that has been widely practised for millennia, however it's only recently that science and clinical practice have discovered the profound potential of mindfulness-based practices for increasing our wellbeing.

Our tendency to not be fully present in life has vast implications. Being unmindful means wasting our lifetime, missing important information, increasing our risk of physical and social accidents and communicating more superficially with other people. Importantly, it makes us unhappier than we realise and vulnerable to stress and poor mental health. By focusing on what is rather than be distracted by what isn't mindfulness can make us much calmer, happier and healthier beings.

Mindfulness for Life is the only book you will ever need on mindfulness. It shows you how to apply mindfulness techniques to your own life whether you need help with medical conditions, personal development or spiritual development. Chapters are included on: stress and ageing, anxiety, depression, addiction, attention deficit orders, pain, weight management, eating disorders, heart disease and stroke, cancer, dementia and sleep; lifestyle, education, workplace, parenting and sporting enhancement; and self-actualisation, happiness and enlightenment development.

Living in the moment


This book has highlighted the importance of living in the moment and just being. It has aided me in becoming a better equipped listener and communicator, and has taught me how to significantly reduce stress from within my working and personal life. I have also utilized the mindfulness meditation techniques with my young daughter who has a chronic pain condition, which has greatly aided her with her pain management. This book is very easy to follow and provides clear instruction. I personally found it very easy to relate to and also very practical.
