Reduce Stress, Reset, and Find Peace Right Now
by Jeffrey Brantley; Wendy Millstine
I am always intrigued by books that offer to help me to be more aware and centered. So, I definitely wanted to give this title a look. Certainly in our current crazy and stressful world, learning how to not get swept up is a reasonable goal.
The author has excellent credentials. He works at Duke University in an integrative medicine program. His book drew me in with sections on Slowing Down and Relaxing, Appreciating Who You Are and What You Have, and last, Connecting to Others and the World Around You.
Readers can go through this title in order or browse. Either way it is a helpful, easy resource to use. The activities that are included will encourage readers to slow down and reset. Try them first thing in the morning as the author suggests. Also, allow for practice. It can be surprisingly difficult to be mindful for five minutes.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
