Summary

Stress is endemic in our culture. We live in a speedy, pressurized world, and there's often little time to really experience and enjoy our lives. Rather than constantly trying to keep up, perhaps it's time for us to stop and pay attention, to our bodies, minds, and the world. For thousands of years Eastern traditions have taught meditation to help people lead healthier, happier lives. Now, scientific research is confirming that mindfulness can help us all improve our mental and physical well-being. Written by Dr. Jonty Heaveresdge and Ed Halliwell, The Mindful Manifestointegrates the latest scientific and medical research on mindfulness with meditation’s historical context. We will see how mindfulness can: treat mental health problems such as depression and anxiety help us cope with the busyness of everyday life improve our physical health and manage chronic illness help us let go of unwanted behaviors and improve how we function in our relationships and jobs. And why stop there? With examples of how the mindfulness movement is already well underway, we see that encouraging governments and other powerful institutions to take a mindful approach could make a massive difference to the health and happiness of the whole world.
