The practice of mindfulness, or stepping back to pay attention to purpose, has grown over the last few years, helping many people relieve stress, attain goals, and even eliminate addictions. In their latest entry in the "Five Good Minutes" series, Brantley, a consulting associate in Duke University's department of psychiatry, and Millstine, a certified holistic nutrition consultant, turn their attention to accepting and nurturing one's physical body. The simple exercises designed to do this entail such practices as listening to one's breath and stopping all activity for five minutes. The beauty of these exercises is that they can be done anytime, anywhere and offer immediate benefits. Presenting a respite in a society of high expectations and critical messages, this book is highly recommended for all libraries.
