Publisher's Summary

Discover the transformative effects of being kind to yourself   

"This brilliant book offers us both the science and practice of how self-kindness is the secret sauce of fulfillment, transformation, and joy." (Lorin Roche, meditation teacher and author of The Radiance Sutras)

Many of us yearn to feel a greater sense of inner calm, ease, joy, and purpose. We have tried meditation and found it too difficult. We judge ourselves for being no good at emptying our minds (as if one ever could) or compare ourselves with yogis who seem to have it all together. We live in a steady state of "not good enough". It does not have to be this way.   

In Good Morning, I Love You, Dr. Shauna Shapiro brings alive the brain science behind why we feel the way we do - about ourselves, each other, and the world - and explains why we get stuck in thinking that doesn’t serve us. It turns out that we are hardwired to be self-critical and negative! And this negativity is constantly undermining our experience of life.   

"It is never too late to rewire your brain for positivity - for calm, clarity, and joy," writes Dr. Shapiro. "I know this is possible because I experienced it. Best of all, you can begin wherever you are." In short, lively chapters laced with science, wisdom, and story, Shapiro, one of the leading scientists studying the effects of mindfulness on the brain, shows us that acting with kindness and compassion toward ourselves is the key.   

With her road map to guide you, including her signature "Good Morning, I Love You" practice, in which you deliberately greet yourself each day with these simple words, you can change your brain's circuitry and steady yourself in feelings of deep calm, clarity, and joy. For good.

Eureka! Thars gold in this book.

Good morning, I love you adroitly dovetails mindfulness and self-compassion into a sturdy nest to lay one's heartmind. The content is a well-constructed weaving of research, storytelling, and meaningful practices relevant to everyday life. The invitations to reflect upon and identify gold nuggets (golden eggs) and to write them in a journal at the end of each chapter is a helpful process. The narration is also easy on the ears. It will be worthwhile to listen to repeatedly.

Perfect guide to train your brain for happiness!

In this awesome Audible version, Dr. Shauna Shapiro's beautifully calm voice wisely guides us up the path to neuroplasticity and its resulting happiness through meditation and mindfulness. 
 
As an added bonus, Dr. Shapiro actually leads us through powerful (yet accessible) guided meditations.  She is a master, one of the absolute best for sure. 

This book is a joy and a gift, that I know will be "the gift that keeps on giving" as I further develop my mindfulness practice with its guidance.

Thank you so much Shauna from the bottom of my heart and mind.  Good morning, I love you.

Insightful

I consider myself a beginner of the mindfulness practice and this book was so insightful and taught me so many important things. Shauna goes through the actual science behind the power of mindfulness and meditation but she also includes helpful tools that can help you to achieve the most out of the practice. I recommend listening to her book as her I find her voice to be soothing and comforting. I wish I could thank her for writing this book, it truly has helped me find compassion for myself and I am now able to feel it deeply for others as well.

Don’t let the sappy title fool you....

Don’t let the sappy title fool you, there is some substantive stuff in here. A fair balance of science, meditation techniques and personal anecdotes. It’s meaningfully and succinctly written to make this little book well worth your while.

This book is for you if...

you want very practical tools to help you manage this journey we call life. Shauna is very down to earth and relatable and has a heart filled with love for humanity and an eagerness to want to help all. This book could save your life, if you do the practices she teaches. I also love the golden nuggets at the end of each chapter, very helpful in reminding me what I just learned...just like she said it would...Shauna blends neuroscience and mindfulness beautifully, making it very easy to understand and also inspiring us to use these different practices daily. Whether you're new to mindfulness or meditation or have been practicing for years, I highly recommend listening to this book...it could...save...your...life.
Thank you Dr. Shapiro, for such a wonderful offering!

Good morning I love you


I wish I could have Shawna narrate every book I buy from this point forward !!!! Please consider getting into that business as well. Or write more books! Her voice is the voice I look forward to every day now. She is so calming articulate and speaks at the perfect pace and tone. The contents of this book is even more perfect. I am not easily impressed so to hear this from me is almost unheard of. Do not hesitate for one second to get this book. It literally changed my life. I went through the first breakup of my life in my 50s at the same time I was hit from behind in my car. This book instantly took away my sadness. I feel as happy as I did when I was a little girl . Is hopeful for the future every day. I feel genuine joy because of this book. Her voice makes you want to listen to it over and over again. I get so annoyed by a great book with a terrible narrator. I can’t even concentrate when that’s the case. Please Shauna write more books and Narrate them!
