Don't you just love Dummies books? They are such a great resource to learn so many "things". Everything is broken down to the simplest components. Is there a topic you want to learn more about but are too intimidated to research it? Simply turn to the Dummies books to acquire all you desire! This Mindfulness Workbook is another great Dummies book. The book begins by teaching the reader to understand just what mindfulness is, exploring the different types of meditations and beginning your journey. You learn how to get started, how to prepare yourself, how to practice living mindfully, what are the rewards of living mindfully and some closing tips. To me the greatest tips in this book are about finding time for mindfulness. I can sometimes barely find time to even take a deep breath. This book is teaching me how to find the time to do so in an easy to follow and easy to understand manner. I give this book 5 stars and encourage anyone who wants to follow a path to happiness to read this book. I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
