You can have all the money in the world, but if you are not content on the inside, you can never be happy. The key to mastering your inside, i.e. your thoughts and emotions, is through mindfulness. It will help you control the monkey mind and develop awareness, focus, empathy, and happiness. Among other things, it will teach you:
How to live in the moment: Great accomplishments have been made through the seemingly simple process of living in the present instead of the past or future. It is a state of optimal existence where you channel your undivided attention onto the task at hand.
How to find your focus: Attention is a depleting mental resource. The secret for a laser-sharp focus is to train yourself for selective attention and eliminate distractions.
How to achieve inner peace and happiness: When is the last time you felt truly happy in life? Do you crave fulfillment? Are you tired of looking for external sources for pleasure? With mindfulness, you will achieve lasting happiness.
How to become stress-free and anxiety-free: Are you a sensitive person? Do you experience social anxiety? Letting go of control and micro-management can do wonders for your peace of mind as well as your physical health.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
We’re interested in being present in the moment, but we don’t really have the time to go deep into Buddhist philosophy. Enter Dharma Hazari, a monk who explains the concept and practice of mindfulness in a way that fits into our busy lives. Mindfulness lays out 10 key Buddhist teachings in the course of 90 minutes, which means it’s easy to focus on one idea at a time in between meetings and the kids’ soccer games. Soothingly narrated by Lisa Morehead, the book details the scientific benefits of living in the moment and offers useful techniques and strategies to help us add some calm and space to our daily lives.
Understanding the World of Mindfulness... Easy-to-Follow Techniques that will Lead to a Better Self
This was literally life changing for me. I had heard about mindfulness from a friend and this was the book I decided to try. There are many techniques that I have used from this gem that have helped me deal with my daily stressors, anxiety, and at times, emotional stability issues (my anxiety results in frequent panic attacks). I know that many of us have similar experiences and varying degrees of stress, but regardless of where you fall within that scale, I highly recommend this book. It offers solid and easy-to-follow techniques that are designed to lead you to a better self and takes very little time to learn and implement. It's the perfect beginner’s toolkit for achieving true inner peace, true happiness and total contentment.
Aaaah, Yes... Living in the present moment!
Well explained with practical guidance. Learning how to absorb current moments into natural occurring emotions is beneficial on so many levels. Great for anyone looking to update their lens, turn off their 'monkey mind' or those just starting out with the practice. Highly recommended!
The content was good and it took everything I had to get through it because the narrator sounded like a robot.
