‘MINDFULNESS INSPIRATION: 50+ Ideas For Mindful Living’

Book cover

Available via Amazon – click here to buy

In ‘MINDFULNESS INSPIRATION’, I offer a collection of tools, self-coaching exercises and daily practices to help you live with increased mindfulness and self-kindness. Drawn from the accessible tips I’ve been sharing with my subscribers since 2013, this book can be used whether you meditate or not, and includes more than 50 ways to bring mindfulness into your daily life.

Why get this book? Perhaps you want to live more mindfully, but you’re not sure about meditation. Or maybe you want to build on your meditation practice by boosting mindfulness in daily life. Here you’ll find a range of ideas to help you explore mindfulness in your everyday life. You don’t need to have an established mindfulness practice to use these ideas, and even if you do, you might find a new take on the practices you already use.

What’s included?  The 12 chapters are each structured into 4 ideas, which you can use as monthly plans, or dip in and use whichever ideas appeal to you most. Additionally, the book includes a 28-day ‘One-Minute Mindfulness’ toolkit, plus suggestions for creating a 6-week plan. All sections are deliberately short so that you can fit your reading into a busy life.

It’s often said that you have to experience mindfulness by practising it, rather than try to understand it intellectually.   This book focusses on ways to put mindfulness into practice, rather than theoretical explanations. (If you would like some reading about what mindfulness is, Mark Williams’ book ‘Finding Peace In A Frantic World’ puts it well).

‘MINDFULNESS, INFERTILITY AND LOSS’: A Personal Story’

MIL cover

Available via Amazon click here to buy

‘MINDFULNESS, INFERTILITY AND LOSS’ is a short book which documents my personal experiences of recurrent miscarriage, and how mindfulness and self-kindness helped me not only to cope, but also to grow as a human being. The writing brings together a collection of blog posts that were originally published by websites that are no longer live. Over the years I’ve received many comments and emails from complete strangers who’d found some comfort in reading these blogs online. Often these readers expressed appreciation for my honesty (I didn’t hold back on describing some of the painful feelings that can be hard to admit to), or how they felt a sense of recognition, of not being the only one affected by similar issues.

For me, the challenges of infertility and loss were a call to awakening – an invitation to growth that was both deeply painful and extraordinarily valuable. For those who might find something helpful in these writings, I offer them with love and compassion for your pain.
