Mindfulness is a form of mental training that centres on being fully present in life; focussing on what is rather than being distracted by what isn't. Mindfulness for Life is written by two experts in the field who bring the medical perspective of an international authority on mindfulness and the psychological perspective of a researcher. The result is a book that translates the scientific principles behind mindfulness into a simple, practical and accessible manual to applying mindfulness in your own life. This revised and updated second edition includes: New research on the science of mindfulness and its clinical applications An in-depth look at how mindfulness links to mental health, ageing, addiction, pain, emotional intelligence, and a variety of other topics Details on the benefits of mindful living, including reduced anxiety and depression, improved sleep, coping better with major illnesses, making healthy lifestyle changes, improved leadership skills, achieving a sense of peace, and more A completely revised section on forming and maintaining mindful relationships with your friends and family. Mindfulness has been around for millennia, but recent years have seen huge advancements in its potential for directly increasing our wellbeing. Take a leap towards mindful living and you might just discover that you become a calmer, happier and healthier being - for life.
