Experience what it is like to live in the moment with this beautifully illustrated journal, specially designed to help you develop your own mindfulness practice.
My Mindful Life provides a way to introduce and integrate mindfulness into your life. Keeping a journal naturally encourages us to reflect on our experience. Reflection is a key part of mindfulness, as it requires an attitude of curiosity and also helps us to set an intention for our practice. Anna Black explains what mindfulness is and how it can help us to have less stress and more contentment, then offers guided exercises and activities that will help you record and reflect your experience with curiosity and without judgment. As well as writing and drawing exercises, there are also a variety of meditation practices, including working with our breath and focusing on the body, and pages where you can note down your own observations and thoughts. As you work through the book, you will not only discover that mindfulness practice becomes a more natural way of being, but have a valuable record of your journey.
