Summary

A growing body of research is showing that mindfulness can reduce stress, improve physical health, and improve one's overall quality of life.
Jan Chozen Bays, MD - physician and Zen teacher - has developed a series of simple practices to help us cultivate mindfulness as we go about our ordinary, daily lives. Exercises include: taking three deep breaths before answering the phone, noticing and adjusting your posture throughout the day, eating mindfully, and leaving no trace of yourself after using the kitchen or bathroom. Each exercise is presented with tips on how to remind yourself and a short life lesson connected with it.

Mindfulness Aphorisms

This book is full of maxims, aphorisms of mindfulness. It's written to assist and keep one on the path to enlightenment. Interestingly, you'll find, if you're already "practicing", that you've already experienced most of what is being read. Therefore, it becomes gratifying to know that the path you're walking is genuinely beneficial to you and indirectly everything. Be well, happy and peaceful.
