Publisher's Summary

Have you ever arrived at work and realize that you don't remember any of the car ride there? Have you ever finished a bag of popcorn and you barely remember opening it? Most people have had moments like this. This is known as mindlessness or autopilot. This causes a buildup of depression, anxiety, reactivity, and stress. It has been proven that the more you let your mind wander, and go on autopilot, the less happy you are. This brings us to mindfulness.

Mindfulness is literally the exact opposite of mindlessness. It is the act of waking from autopilot and taking control of your attention. With mindfulness, you are keeping a moment to moment awareness of everything going on around you; your body, thoughts, sensation, feelings, and environment. It also means you are non-judgmental. When you start paying attention you can't judge your thoughts or feelings. You have to be impartial to it all.

Mindfulness is a great practice that can improve anybody's quality of life. Mindfulness has been around for centuries. An easy way to explain the background of mindfulness is Buddhism. What we know as mindfulness comes from the meditation practices of the Buddhists, around 2500 years ago. They used the meditation to reach inner peace, unlock potential, grow their concentration, and intellectual and spiritual development.

Hinduism was old when Buddha was born. Mindfulness had already been a part of the Hindu ways and teaching. Buddha used mindfulness as his core philosophy in his teachings. He taught that life revolved around it, and explained what it meant for everyday life. Buddha had lots of people around him that recorded his teachings, unlike Jesus.

All good to know materials.

This book may be most useful to listeners new to mindfulness. The author does a good job of pulling practical suggestions together from the literature. The use of intentional rituals was a concept new to me. I appreciated that he organized the book by taking the reader through a typical day using mindfulness techniques.

They do a really good presentation and I am enjoying the book very much. Do the exercises and keep mindful, most of the time.


HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Thank you for this wonderful tool

Any additional comments?

This is my first book on this subject, and the most indepth and informative book on the subject. I've taken my time reading it as there is so much information contained in this book and the occasional Hindu, Indian, words included. I really like the edition as the definition of unusual words are always handy. The more that I read on this subject and philosophy the more fascinating I find it.

Terrific Listen

What did you love best about Transform Your Life Through Mindfulness?

I loved this audiobook and just ordered the paperback as well so that I can better capture the structure of his approach which is never easy in an audiobook without chapter headings. Listening to Alexis is a pleasure in and of itself. I could listen to him all day - which in fact I did on a long and stressful road trip.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in learning about mindfulness and its application in daily life.
