Description

Woven through with personal stories, this book had the right mix of science, discussion, and experience with a bonus 6 week mindfulness course thrown in. I was already having trouble with the author’s rather chaotic style (going off at tangents, and using endless, complicated comparisons that just made things more confusing), when I was shocked by something they said at about the 20% mark.

I have yet to try the six week course, to see if there are real positive changes to be made, but aim to start and report back (to you dear brain) in six weeks time. Drawing on the latest science, she offers insightful, irreverent advice on how to improve every aspect of our lives, from our health and happiness to our relationships and careers.

I probably wouldn't have picked up this book if it hadn't been recommended to me -- and I have to say that some of the exercises just don't work for me. Ruby Wax shows us how to de-frazzle for good by making simple changes that give us time to breathe, reflect and live in the moment. A more structured follow up to Sane New World, with a little more 'science' behind it and a six week course of mindfulness exercises.

So they're interesting, and I suspect relevant to anyone who has any sort of contact with babies, children or teenagers, even if they're not your own.In short, I think this is a good, readable introduction to mindfulness, if you bear in mind that Wax's own issues are on the extreme side and the practice is supposed to also be useful for less dramatic situations. Letti un paio di libri introduttivi, però, devo ammettere di aver problemi a vedere la separazione tra "notare" e "pensare", o meglio, a capire cosa si intenda per "osservare i propri pensieri" e cose del genere. This book, I feel, is more written in a diary form, like Ruby Wax has just jotted down a lot of thoughts, feelings and situations and slapped a cover on it. These often tread the line between funny and harrowing and I feel are mostly useful in describing a certain mental state that mindfulness can help with.

I found parts of this book really easy to read, but faltered at chapter 5 and the mindfulness exercises. In September 2013, she graduated from Kellogg College at Oxford University with a master's degree in mindfulness based cognitive therapy.I would like to try and bring some of them into daily use - if I could just find the book when I need it!
