Elise posts practical steps on tapping into your inner happiness. I particularly liked how the book was split up into 4 weeks making it really easy and manageable to read and follow along. If you're looking to introduce meditation and mindfulness into your life and just don't know where to start, this is the book you need. I loved how Elise also shared recipes relevant to each week!
A really interesting yet practical book. Well laid out and easy to follow step by step guide for daily meditation. Great tips for sleeping and waking routines and some delicious recipes dropped in there too which was a nice touch (love the berry chocolate breakfast mousse)
I have read lots of books on meditation and mindfulness, and the strategies and ways Elise sees the world and expresses herself is refreshing. There are so many books on 'being in the now' and how to be 'happy'. There is something about Elise honest and methodical approach, bringing In her background as a trained Psychiatrist - nothing to fluffy! I love how the book takes us on a meditation journey from'beginners mind' to 'managing meditation obstacles' make it so easy to follow and accessible. Ooh and not to mention the delicious recipes she rewards her readers with at the end of each week. YUM!!!!! A BRILLIANTLY REFRESHING APPROACH TO MEDITATION AND FINDING TRUE HAPPINESS!!!! Well done Elise!!!
Clear, well-written, full of valuable advice on how to include a mindfulness practice into your life even if you think you're too busy, too stressed, too exhausted. Elise's easy-to-follow plan is like a gentle hand guiding you to take small steps that, before you know it, turn into big results! Highly recommend it to anyone currently sitting on the mindfulness fence!
I really enjoyed reading this book. It was interesting to find out more about the medical benefits of meditation and it provided a very simple, easy to follow method of how to start meditating. It is very well written and easy to follow. The extra support with the online weekly meditations was a nice bonus and was a huge aid in starting meditation for the first time.
