The Force of Kindness Book Review:

Distill the great spiritual teachings from around the world down to their most basic principles, and one thread emerges to unite them all: kindness. In The Force of Kindness, Sharon Salzberg, one of the nation's most respected Buddhist authors and meditation teachers, offers practical instruction on how we can cultivate this essential trait within ourselves.Through her stories, teachings, and guided meditations, Sharon Salzberg takes readers on an exploration of what kindness truly means and the simple steps to realize its effects immediately. She reveals that kindness is not the sweet, naive sentiment that many of us assume it is, but rather an immensely powerful force that can transform individual lives and ripple out, changing and improving relationships, the environment, our communities, and ultimately the world. Readers will learn specific techniques for cultivating forgiveness; turning compassion into action; practicing speech that is truthful, helpful, and loving; and much more.When we fan even the smallest ember of kindness, according to Sharon Salzberg, we begin to overcome our own fears, doubts, and personal attachments - and tap an endless source of gentle strength that is always available to us. With her graceful writing and six guided meditations on CD, this beloved meditation master empowers readers to enhance The Force of Kindness in their own spiritual practice.

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! Table of Contents: Introduction: Why Meditation For Life Success? Chapter 1: Meditation? What it's all about? Chapter 2: Let's Get Started! Various types of Meditation/Guided Meditations Chapter 3: Meditation and Stillness in Everyday Life Chapter 4: How to Maintain Inner Peace and Never Feel Anxious or Distracted Again Chapter 5: Conclusion

The Relaxation Response Book Review:

In this time of quarantine and global uncertainty, it can be difficult to deal with the increased stress and anxiety. Using ancient self-care techniques rediscovered by Herbert Benson, M.D., a pioneer in mind/body medicine for health and wellness, you can relieve your stress, anxiety, and depression at home with just ten minutes a day. Herbert Benson, M.D., first wrote about a simple, effective mind/body approach to lowering blood pressure in The Relaxation Response. When Dr. Benson introduced this approach to relieving stress over forty years ago, his book became an instant national bestseller, which has sold over six million copies. Since that time, millions of people have learned the secret—without high-priced lectures or prescription medicines. The Relaxation Response has become the classic reference recommended by most health care professionals and authorities to treat the harmful effects of stress, anxiety, depression, and high blood pressure. Rediscovered by Dr. Benson and his colleagues in the laboratories of Harvard Medical School and its teaching hospitals, this revitalizing, therapeutic tack is now routinely recommended to treat patients suffering from stress and anxiety, including heart conditions, high blood pressure, chronic pain, insomnia, and many other physical and psychological ailments. It requires only minutes to learn, and just ten minutes of practice a day.
