Top 5 Reads to begin your Mindful Journey

 Top 5 Reads to begin your Mindful Journey

It is rightly said that books are a man's best friends. With the internet, the number of readers have reduced a lot in the last twenty years but still I feel that the wisdom that you get from books is more reliable than the internet because they have been reviewed before publishing. They also have the magical ability to bring both past and future together through words. 

When you want to begin you mindful journey, books can be a great help to you. You can read and refer to them at any point of life. 

Here's a list of top 5 books which can be very helpful for your mindful journey :

Mindfulness is the easy way to gently let go of stress and be in the moment. It has fast become the slow way to manage the modern world - without chanting mantras or finding hours of special time to meditate.

Bring these simple 5- and 10-minute practices into your day to find freedom from stress and ultimately, more peace in your life.

Mindfulness for Beginners: How to Drastically Transform All Areas of Your Life & Health with Powerful Mindfulness Techniques , by Marta Tuchowska.

It all comes down to diving deep, making friends with your emotions (both good and bad) and understanding your awareness.In this book, you will find effective techniques to step out of your mindless, stressful thinking and allow your mind to finally embrace mindfulness so that you can achieve peace and happiness in all areas of your life.

Practicing Mindfulness: 75 Essential Meditations to Reduce Stress, Improve Mental Health, and Find Peace in the Everyday, by Matthew Sockolov 

Mindfulness is an evidence-based method for reducing stress, enhancing resilience, and maintaining mental well-being. Even short meditations can turn a bad day around, ground us in the present moment, and help us approach life with gratitude and kindness.

Practicing Mindfulness was created by the founder of One Mind Dharma. He developed these 75 essential exercises to offer practical guidance for anyone who wants to realize the benefits of mindful meditation. This includes expert advice on dealing with distorted or wandering thoughts and how to handle mental blocks.

Early meditations in Practicing Mindfulness take just 5 minutes and are highly accessible. As they progress, exercises grow with the reader, building on previous lessons to develop a transformative mindfulness practice. With meditations designed for specific situations or emotions, even experienced practitioners will have a continuing resource for mindfulness at every moment.

Begin a journey of peace and patience today on the path to a calmer, more balanced life with Practicing Mindfulness.

The Miracle of Mindfulness: An Introduction to the Practice of Meditation, by Thich Nhat Hanh 

In this beautiful and lucid guide, Zen master Thich Nhat Hanh offers gentle anecdotes and practical exercise as a means of learning the skills of mindfulness--being awake and fully aware. From washing the dishes to answering the phone to peeling an orange, he reminds us that each moment holds within it an opportunity to work toward greater self-understanding and peacefulness.

Mindfulness: An Eight-Week Plan for Finding Peace in a Frantic World, by Mark Williams & Danny Penman

MINDFULNESS reveals a set of simple yet powerful practices that you can incorporate into daily life to help break the cycle of anxiety, stress, unhappiness, and exhaustion. It promotes the kind of happiness and peace that gets into your bones. It seeps into everything you do and helps you meet the worst that life throws at you with new courage.

The book is based on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). MBCT revolves around a straightforward form of mindfulness meditation which takes just a few minutes a day for the full benefits to be revealed. MBCT has been clinically proven to be at least as effective as drugs for depression and is widely recommended by US physicians and the UK's National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence - in other words, it works. More importantly it also works for people who are not depressed but who are struggling to keep up with the constant demands of the modern world.
