Summary

In 1990, Jon Kabat-Zinn revolutionized the way millions of people handle distressing thoughts and feelings by writing Full Catastrophe Living, the book that introduced mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) to the public for the first time. In A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook, mindfulness experts Bob Stahl and Elisha Goldstein adapt Kabat-Zinn's groundbreaking program into an accessible workbook format. Readers turn to this book to gradually improve their ability to relieve intense stress and reconnect with the present.

The workbook invites readers to participate in formal and informal practices and use fill-in exercises to reflect and track their progress. After each weekly session, readers can apply the techniques they learned that week into everyday life, gradually learning to replace stress-promoting habits with mindful ones. The audio CD bound with this book offers extensive and helpful supplemental material that readers can listen to anytime to receive a refresher course on MBSR techniques and useful guidance for incorporating these techniques into their days.

Practical Stress-Reduction May 22, 2011
by
This is a very useful textbook. I have been going through it almost daily and doing at least one of the meditations provided. It's filled with very clear and easy to understand exercises that help you heal from anxiety and stress. I would recommend this to everyone that is looking for help with stress and stress-related conditions.
