Excellent practical advice

I loved the practical suggestions in this book and the examples of specific worries which many of us have and how to relate better to them using Mindfulness. I would recommend this book for any worriers interested in using Mindfulness to bring more calmness and clarity into their lives.

Very useful guide for managing anxiety.

This is a good guide for understanding and managing anxiety. You will need to get to a deeper level (self image/esteem) to address root cause issues. Worth investing money and time.

Good book for those who worry a lot

I found the scenarios covered very relatable & Have been finding the methods of mindfulness very helpful in my day to day life.

my only downside, is that the content is sometimes repetitive throughout the book, but only where appropriate.

Just “listening” is calming

I like the approach, simplicity and narration.
I think serves a basic level of implementing mindfulness in many of life’s aspects. Also, found “new” ideas that is added to my intellectual library.
