Mindfulness is a theme that keeps coming up again over and over again around me. It’s also something that resonates with me.
I feel like we’re constantly moving, constantly thinking about what’s next on our to-do list, just going-going-going without ever really being present in the here and now.
I think moms are especially guilty of that. We’re juggling the kids, the home, work, our relationships, friends, family and, if we’re lucky, our own needs. Sometimes it’s really hard to appreciate the moment.
My girls are growing up fast, and Zoë starting Kindergarten last week really drove that point home. A personal goal is to become more present in the present, and to be more mindful each and every day.
So I was thrilled to receive a copy of the Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies to review. I am not finished with it yet, but I am very much enjoying what I am reading.
The book is very in-depth, but it’s not just a book, it’s a workbook. What that means is that it lays out an entire program for you to follow if you want to become more mindful too.
The program is 8-weeks and I am thinking about committing to it. I think it would pair well with getting back into practicing yoga (something I keep saying I’m going to do, but never find the time to follow through with).
I like that the program is laid out step by step, so I don’t have to figure anything out – just go with it. It’s much easier to stick with something that is well structured.
If you are also wanting to take a more mindful approach in your life, consider picking up a copy of the Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies!
