This was a very eventful year for me with a lot of things going on in my personal and professional life. Throughout the year I felt bouts of anxiety on what’s to come next, and felt uneasy about the future. Eventually, the year turned out very well for me, and I was fortunate enough to receive the best outcome of all the paths that every aspect of life was taking. What’s interesting though is that my anxiety didn’t subside, it reduced from what it was, but it seemed like I had acquired this terrible habit of living in the future, and trying to predict what was to come, and quite often found myself down a rabbit-hole of worst case outcomes.
That was pretty much my trigger to buy a book on mindfulness, to try and learn to be present in the moment, and I think this is a good book to do just that. Give an introduction to mindfulness in a very simple accessible way, get you started on some form of meditation, and help you understand some of the concepts behind it. This book helped me in all of these things, and for the first time ever I started meditation as well. That alone is worth the time and energy spent in this book.
I feel like this book will be useful for someone who’s curious about mindfulness, and is not looking for something very comprehensive or in a guide like format. This book is about basics, and fundamentals, and if that is what you are looking for then I would recommend it.
