Overview

The self-help and inspirational book The Mindful Lifestyle describes mindfulness practices in detail, with the idea that everyone can benefit by learning and practicing mindfulness meditation.

Many examples and exercises are provided. While it is a small and concise book, it covers all aspects of mindfulness in an easy to understand way, and suggests that meditation can be more than a practice one does a few minutes a day. It can be a lifestyle choice.

Gary Green grew up on a small dairy farm near New London, Minnesota, where he still lives. He worked much of his life in the mental health field and for 17 years was the director of a mental health residential treatment facility for mentally ill adults. He retired in 2013. This is his second book.

Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite The Mindful Lifestyle by Gary Green is about teaching mindfulness techniques and concepts to enable those who use these principles to improve the quality of their lives and relationships. The book begins with an illuminating discussion about transcendental meditation and approaches the question of mindfulness, loosely put as reflecting about the present. Gary goes on to introduce the techniques for achieving concentration, and here uses mundane day to day tasks like knitting, painting, washing dishes or playing as mindfulness exercises. Mindfulness is then examined in various different hues of its occurrence. The functional aspects of the mind, logical versus the emotional parts, willfulness versus willingness, compassionate versus the opposite, as well as the relevance of these aspects in self healing are elaborated. The Mindful Lifestyle by Gary Green is a simple, easy and practical guide to a rather complex subject. I found it hard to believe that meditation and the many facets of self healing are, in fact, so effortless. This is a good guide, especially for those who would like to get an introduction to this line of thinking. The book is also replete with helpful lists and step wise procedures, enhancing its usability. The result of using one's wise mind and living the mindful lifestyle will result in one becoming more adept at living. Or, as Gary mentions, “You will become more willing to accept what life throws at you. You will be healthier both physically and mentally, and you will live longer.” An interesting book indeed.
