Just as I was thinking about sitting down to review this book, my phone rang. Five minutes later it rang again and then again. So, as you can see, I needed to focus again before returning to this review. 5 Minute Focus offers ways to do just that. The book describes a number of situations and offers advice for how to mange them in a mindful manner. A few examples with catchy titles include Case of the Mondays, Savor Every Bite, Avoid the Afternoon Crash, Anxious Much? and A Remedy for Overwhelm. For each there is something for the realer to try. The suggestions are practical and designed to be accomplished within five minutes. For example, Sleep for Focus, suggests doing a body scan, something that mindfulness practitioners may already be aware of.
This book is worth a look. Keep it handy and perhaps it will help a bit when you are struggling.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
