With just ten minutes practice a day you can begin to train your mind in ways that will leave you more awake, more alive and more creative.
Nearly half of our waking hours are spent thinking about something other than what we are doing. We are only aware of a tiny fraction of what we are thinking, feeling and sensing – so we’re barely conscious of how and why we behave the way we do.
This book sets out to help you get your mind out of automatic more often. It contains simple, clear exercises that take only ten minutes per day and our research tells us that if you do these exercises, your life will change. The exercises build three core capacities – Allowing, Inquiry and Meta-awareness. If you do them, and build these capacities, you will become less reactive and more responsive. This will lead to positive benefits in several key areas: your relationships, your ability to deal with unexpected events and your capacity to stay purposeful and to see your life as a matter of choices rather than seemingly impossible challenges.
I warmly recommend this book. Setting aside Mind Time each day has the potential to transform your relationships, your work and yourself. – Mark Williams (Co-Author of the bestselling Mindfulness: A practical guide to peace in a frantic world)
