BOOK OF THE MONTH: JANUARY 2018
ABOUT THE BOOK
Modern Mindfulness is a new kind of mindfulness book, a usable guide to being more relaxed, focused, and kind while living in this fast, digital, always-on world.
Rohan Gunatillake, creator of the best-selling buddhify app, argues that to lead more mindful, calm and happy lives, switching off is the last thing we need to do. Instead he gives us the ideas, principles and techniques to bring awareness, composure and kindness to wherever we are and whatever we are doing.
Filled with over sixty practical exercises which you can plug into your life straight away, the mobile mindfulness approach of Modern Mindfulness presents a way to get the benefits from meditation however busy your life is.
It's time to ditch the 'Digital Detox' as author Rohan shows us how we can be mindful in our lives as they are: with our tablets in hand, on our phones and in the digital worlds we inevitably inhabit.
‘It’s a relief to discover Rohan Gunatillake’s new book on redesigning mindfulness . . . If our lives are truly to become more mindful, we’ll have to start with our real, technology-entangled lives, as they are, ’ says Oliver Burkeman, Guardian
‘Remarkably useful and non-dogmatic,’ says mindfulness guru Sharon Salzberg.
Shelf Help believes this book will help you:
- Learn mindfulness techniques throughout the day (and night)
- Learn to use your phone mindfully
- Find time for mindfulness in even the busiest schedule
- Use technology for good instead of evil (no need to do a digital detox)
- Learn to ‘whack-a-thought’ and stay centred
