Mindfulness is something that many of us are trying to focus on a little more. After all, life is busy.
Whether you are a parent navigating the fog of life with kids, under pressure with a job, or struggling with things like your finances or relationships, mindfulness can be a great way to reaffirm your feelings and help you think more positively.
However, if you are wanting to be introduced to mindfulness then where should you start? I have found a few books that are well worth reading to help you grasp how you can incorporate mindfulness into your life.
The headspace guide to mindfulness and meditation – Andy Puddicombe
Mindfulness and meditation can go hand in hand, and this book is all about introducing you to both concepts. It explains things informatively and adds an element of simplicity to it.
Especially as meditation for people who don’t do it often can feel overwhelming. A great book to start you on your journey.
The little book of mindfulness – Patrizia Collard
If you want a book that will break down mindfulness in easy to understand bitesize chunks then this book is a great option.
It is easy to refer back to, acknowledge, and scan the pages for when you need a few reminders. A lovely option for embracing mindfulness.
The boy, the mole, the fox, and the horse – Charles Mackesy
This is such a lovely book to remind you to think a little differently. It is easy to understand and gives you insight in short bursts through beautiful images and very easy to digest forms of wording.
