From W. W. Norton in the 8 Keys to Mental Health Series:
8 Keys to Practicing Mindfulness
Mindfulness can be defined as the ability to be present with your experiences without judgment; to witness your thoughts, feelings, and sensations with curiosity during both ordinary and dramatic moments.
If you strive to be more awake and alive in your daily life, if you feel stressed, want to improve your relationships, or gain more resources to get you through hard times, mindfulness can be the answer. The 8 “keys” in this book will help readers foster a calm, sustained, and mindful inner state that leads to rejuvenation, connection, and confidence. Practical teachings are applied through stories and descriptions, and easy-to-understand exercises walk readers through every key.
For anyone who wants to learn how to use the power of mindfulness to transform their daily life and to deal with problems such as stress, trauma, anxiety, depression, and even addiction, this book will guide the way.
