Switching off is the last thing we need to do to be more mindful, calm, and happy. Modern Mindfulness gives you the ideas, principles, and techniques you need to bring awareness, composure, and kindness to whatever you are doing. Filled with more than sixty practical exercises, the author's approach brings the benefits of meditation to even the busiest of lives.
Ideas from Modern Mindfulness:
- Adopt mindfulness techniques throughout the day (and night)
- Use your phone mindfully (yes, it's possible!)
- Make mobility part of mindfulness (we're always on the move!)
- Use technology for good instead of evil (no need to do a digital detox).
- Whack-a-thought" and stay centered
