Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

Whether you are at home or at work, on your daily commute or traveling, you can practice mindfulness to decrease stress and improve your health and well-being. It is often challenging to weave mindfulness into our day as we get caught up in the busyness of life. It can feel overwhelming sometimes to know what to do and how to start doing something different and having to decide stops us doing anything at all. Mindfulness on the Go is designed to address this problem. It introduces the essential pillars of mindfulness and how to cultivate it, then offers 52 daily suggestions, divided into practices and activities, to start using it. Practices are mini meditations to do while you are out and about, while activities focus more on becoming aware of your habitual patterns of behavior, as well as how mindfulness can help you to cultivate new ones. By focusing on just one thing per day, it makes it easier to remember rather than just feeling you should be mindful all the time. As you become familiar with the type of practices, you will find that you begin to do them without the prompts, and mindfulness will become part of your daily life.

Experience a year of living mindfully with weekly activities and practices that will help you enjoy a more stress-free, contented, and fulfilled life. “...the perfect guide for those starting out on the road to wellness.” Natural Health magazine. Anna Black believes we can see our essential nature as the blue sky and our experience, good and bad, simply as impersonal weather that obscures it from time to time. We can’t stop the difficult times occurring, but we can help ourselves through them by connecting with our essential nature through mindfulness, weekly activities and meditations to cultivate present moment awareness. The emphasis is on progressing at your own pace and cultivating a spirit of curiosity about the moments that make up your life. Anna suggests ways to actively cultivate qualities that build our emotional resilience in the same way we may exercise to improve our physical fitness. We can learn to handle difficult emotions and to respond to our experience rather than being hijacked by it.

Living in the Moment

Author: Anna Black
Publisher: CICO Books
ISBN: 1908170441
Release Date: 2012-02-09
Genre: Body, Mind & Spirit

Most of us operate on auto-pilot much of the time, passing through the present moment with our mind either caught up in the past or straining toward the future. Through mindfulness meditation, an ancient Buddhist practice, Anna Black shows you how to intentionally pay attention to your daily experience. When we are not being mindful, we miss out on small moments that often are the most valuable—be it a beautiful building that we pass on our journey to work, the taste and texture of lovingly prepared food, or the fact that we are needed by those we love the most. By being “mindless†we miss opportunities for personal growth by not being aware of our shortcomings or our inner strength, or by letting negative thoughts and emotions control us. In mindfulness meditation we pay attention to our ongoing experience whether it is pleasant—such as appreciating a starry night sky; unpleasant—a disagreement with a loved one; or neutral—doing chores. We become aware of our habitual thoughts and behaviors and discover which are helpful and which are not. We learn to listen to the body and pick up warning signs of stress as well as tune in to our inner wisdom.

In mindfulness meditation we pay attention to our ongoing experience whether it is pleasant--such as appreciating a beautiful sunny day; unpleasant--a disagreement with a loved one; or neutral--doing household chores.

Flourish in the workplace with mindfulness meditation. Work-related stress is an all-too-common part of modern life.The rise of digital media means that many people never really “switch off” from work and the culture of presenteeism causes us to spend more time at work than ever before.

Anna Black suggests short and simple meditations that can be used throughout the working day to strengthen focus and concentration, enhance working relationships and improve empathy – all of which help you to perform well and keep calm at work, whatever your job. Anna’s suggestions are applicable to both office-based workers and those who work from home and she covers a range of topics including working mindfully with others, paying mindful attention in meetings and using meditation to cope with stressful situations.
