Mindfulness for Beginners
Mindfulness for Beginners: Reclaiming the Present Moment--And Your Life | Jon Kabat-Zinn Phd
Now in paperback, the perfect starting place to learn mindfulness meditation and return ourselves to wholeness and presence. With Mindfulness for Beginners, Jon Kabat-Zinn guides readers through the simple steps for transforming our relationship to the way we think, feel, love, work, and play, to more fully embody who we really are. Here, the teacher, scientist, and clinician who first demonstrated the benefits of mindfulness within mainstream Western medicine shares the key perspectives and practices that he's found most useful with his students and patients. Mindfulness for Beginners provides welcome answers, insights, and instruction to help us make the shift, moment by moment, into a more spacious, clear, reliable, and loving connection with ourselves and the world. Includes a CD of five guided mindfulness meditations by the author.

"Non-doing has nothing to do with being indolent or passive. Quite the contrary. It takes great courage and energy to cultivate non-doing, both in stillness and in activity." - Jon Kabat Zinn

I enjoyed the audiobook so much I decided I needed my own physical copy so I could underline and make notes. The audiobook is pretty short, but packed full of great stuff, more science-based if you prefer that. And if you‘re working on meditation or mindfulness, I highly recommend the audio version since he walks you through guided mindfulness practices.

I'll re-read this (eventually) with my eyes. The audio book was a helpful sleep aid. I haven't yet had a chance to check out the meditations disc in the back of the book. I didn't luuurve it; but, I'll mark it as a cautious Pick.

#BFCr2 All the motivation & encouragement is so energizing! ❤

For those not satisfied with week 2, you're not alone! Many of us didn't get where we wanted. BUT we're sticking with it & making progress. So take time to say “YAY ME!“ for what you did accomplish. The important thing is you STARTED & haven't quit!

Optional Week 3 Photo Challenge: favorite motivational book or most helpful book you've ever read.

Crazeedi It was a different week for me cause I was away, but this 3rd week will be great I can feel it!! 4mo
wanderinglynn @Crazeedi yes, when you travel, it‘s hard to stick with your routines & good habits! But you got week 3! 🙌🏻 4mo
Crazeedi @wanderinglynn and I almost said I didn't do very well, then I remember what you say! And I changed my thoughts!! Yippee!! I'm also sending another book, I have 2 copies. I sent a package last week to you! 4mo
wanderinglynn @Crazeedi I got it! Thank you! 💜 And way to go on the #positivity! It really does make a difference in your outlook. ☺️ 4mo
twohectobooks Really like that phrase about finishing last etc. Something I remind myself of a lot in the pool: I may be slow compared to so many others, but I‘m fast compared to where I was last year and the year before! 4mo
KathyWheeler I love how positive you are! 4mo
wanderinglynn @twohectobooks 👍🏻👍🏻 When I was training for a marathon (and a bit down because I am a S-L-O-W runner), it‘s something a coach said to me. It stuck with me. 4mo
wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler It‘s my super power! 😉 4mo
LibrarianRyan ⭐️👍🤓 4mo
Bookwormjillk Have a great week 3 everyone! 4mo
KathyWheeler @wanderinglynn we‘re opposites! My superpower is my negativity. I‘m trying to overcome that though. 4mo
Crazeedi @KathyWheeler I've been where you are, but things look brighter when you change your view, it's not easy but worth it! You can do it! We are all here to encourage you!! 4mo
Larkken 😍 thanks! Onwards! 4mo
wanderinglynn @KathyWheeler it‘s not easy to change habits we‘ve had for a long time, especially when society reinforces them. But as @Crazeedi says, it‘s so worth it. 💜 And like any change, it takes just getting off the couch (so to speak) and then one step at a time, one day at a time. You got this! 🙌🏻 4mo
Mitch Happy week 3 everyone 🏆 4mo
TheWordJar I love this! It reminds me of my mom and stepfather (73 and 82 years old)...they did their first ever 5k walk this spring. I walked with them and we finished dead last (I took official last so they could say they beat me), but they finished!!!! I was so proud of them. You can‘t finish what you don‘t start. I think this week I‘m going to try to be as good a cheerleader for myself as I am for others! 4mo
wanderinglynn @TheWordJar that‘s awesome! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🎉 4mo

This book's gently matter-of-fact tone and careful language introduces the reader to practices for being awake in one's breath, in one's senses. I like that it is written in brief passages, kind of like a daybook, so you can attentively absorb reflections and practices of being - rather than forcing, doing, and striving. #mindfulness #moments #presence #breathe
