Meditation for Beginners Book Review:

Meditation is not only about crystals, hypnotic folk music and incense sticks! Forget about sitting in unnatural and uncomfortable positions while going "ommmmm...." It is not a club full of yoga masters, Shaolin monks, hippies and new-agers. It is super practical and universal practice, that can improve your overall brain perfomance and happiness! -Looking to be truly happy... not just fake smiles anymore? -Sick of being held up and helpless, a victim of terrible circumstance? -Do you really want to be a slave to your emotions anymore? -Are you so depressed and negative that no one really enjoys spending time with you? Well, I was not necessarily talking to you, but if it speaks to you, you have picked up the right book! Most People Walk Through Their Life In a Walking Daze And I was too. I was constantly fighting everything going on in my life; with my mind. Day to day stressors like traffic, the mean lady at the gas station with the bad breath that I had to see every morning, and the long hours put in at work, were enough to drain me. My boss, with his long nose hair, breathing down my neck about my productivity level was enough to deplete a person every day. "What do I do? What will happen next? What if, what if, what if...?" I could not even enjoy a second of my day, because I was lost in worry and stress over what was going to happen next and what I could do to maybe control it. In this book you will find techniques to step out of your thinking and allow your mind to finally rest. When meditating, you take a step back from actively thinking your thoughts, and instead, see them for what they are. The reason why meditation is helpful in reducing stress and attaining peace is that it gives your over-active conscious a break. Just like your body needs it, your mind does too! I give you the gift of peace that I was able to attain through present moment awareness. In This Book I'll Show You: -My favorite meditation and mindfulness techniques perfect for ordinary busy people like you and me -My personal experience -How exactly do I practice and how it helped me in so many ways -How to maintain stillness, peace and focus in everyday life -How to stick to your meditation practice and maintain high level of motivation -The right mindset you should have to keep your brain and thoughts healthy -A few simple things you can do to instantly feel better and happier! -And many, many more!

Bliss More Book Review:

From one of America’s top meditation teachers and mindfulness experts comes a revolutionarily simple approach to everyday practice—especially if you don’t think you have the time or the patience. Imagine you’re sitting on a cushion with your legs crossed, ready to tap into unlimited joy. There’s just one problem: You can’t get comfortable (let alone still), and your head is full of way too many thoughts. The problem is not with meditation, or you, though—the issue may be with your approach. When properly understood and practiced, meditation should feel easy, calming, and comfortable. In Bliss More, maverick instructor Light Watkins provides the tools for making it E.A.S.Y. (Embrace, Accept, Surrender, Yield), dispels the biggest myths and misunderstandings, and shares real-world tips and straight talk for hacking into this ancient practice. The result: a happier and healthier you, inside and out. Watkins also shares candid testimonials from people whose lives have been enriched through his method, and extensive resources for transforming a daily chore into an enjoyable activity. Even the biggest skeptic will look forward to sitting for meditation every day. Whether you’re a novice or experienced practitioner, Bliss More will shed light on the path to a clearer mind, better sleep, and more bliss in everyday life.

10 Happier Book Review:

#1 New York Times Bestseller REVISED WITH NEW MATIERAL Winner of the 2014 Living Now Book Award for Inspirational Memoir "An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation." —Elizabeth Gilbert Nightline anchor Dan Harrisembarks on an unexpected, hilarious, and deeply skeptical odyssey through the strange worlds of spirituality and self-help, and discovers a way to get happier that is truly achievable. After having a nationally televised panic attack, Dan Harris knew he had to make some changes. A lifelong nonbeliever, he found himself on a bizarre adventure involving a disgraced pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a gaggle of brain scientists. Eventually, Harris realized that the source of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had propelled him through the ranks of a hypercompetitive business, but had also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out. Finally, Harris stumbled upon an effective way to rein in that voice, something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation, a tool that research suggests can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brain. 10% Happier takes readers on a ride from the outer reaches of neuroscience to the inner sanctum of network news to the bizarre fringes of America’s spiritual scene, and leaves them with a takeaway that could actually change their lives.
