Distractions are everywhere these days. Our thoughts drift to what we need to do tomorrow, or what went wrong yesterday. Even pleasurable things--like eating chocolate--don't receive our full attention. We miss out on joy that is easily within reach!
In Mindfulness Is Better Than Chocolate
, David Michie gives us the tools to rewire our brains for happiness. "Mindfulness" is paying attention to the present moment, deliberately and nonjudgmentally--and science has shown that those who practice it experience a wealth of benefits:
- Reduced stress
- Stronger immune systems
- More ease in breaking bad habits
- Improved self-esteem
- Enhanced mental clarity
- Sharper memory
- Overall well-being
- . . . and better-tasting chocolate!
As Michie explains, the way we see the world is our own creation. Drawing on both Buddhist teachings and contemporary science, he teaches us how to experience a mind free of stress and dullness. By harnessing the power of mindfulness and meditation, we can find everything we need to be fulfilled, productive, and content!
