She shows how to meet - face to face - all that life throws at us, and gives her own step by step guide to finding deep stillness in the midst of the chaos Prof. I've read through it and am aiming to have a go at it, but can't really report on whether it's a good'un.

A more structured follow up to Sane New World, with a little more 'science' behind it and a six week course of mindfulness exercises. I didn't really have high hopes going into this book but I do like Ruby Wax and thought I'd give it a shot as I'm on the lookout for any help with depression and anxiety.

Wax provides step-by-step guides to mindfulness practise that you can do daily - including practise for those if us with busy and active lives (or those who are not 100% taken by the idea of mindfulness). In September 2013, she graduated from Kellogg College at Oxford University with a master's degree in mindfulness based cognitive therapy. I remember Ruby Wax from my childhood, but didn't have a clue about her academic achievements, or her struggles with mental health. Her six weeks program, which is the focus if the book, is also a departure from the usual eight weeks programs.

What I enjoyed about Ruby's introduction was her sheer honesty - depression is real, mindfulness will not solve all your problems. Probabilmente dipende dalla personalità dell'Autrice, e dalla sua vena comica lontana dai miei gusti - purtroppo il libro è stato scritto con l'idea, temo, di procurare al lettore anche del divertimento. OCD impacts on the lives of the whole family, especially those that love and care for people with OCD. Due to the pandemic, in 2020 and 2021 we checked into our virtual hotel to host our annual conference where we flew the flag for recovery.All in all a great read, especially if you struggle mentally and want to turn to something that does from what you got and not what a Dr is putting into your hand.

There's a World of books to choose from such as: Children's Books, Range includes Baby Books (0-3), Books for Toddlers (3-5), Early Readers (5-7), Childrens Story books (7-11), Young Teens (11-14), Young Adults (14-16) and Childrens Educational Books. I was already having trouble with the author’s rather chaotic style (going off at tangents, and using endless, complicated comparisons that just made things more confusing), when I was shocked by something they said at about the 20% mark. The book includes numerous anecdotes from her personal life and a large sprinkle of sarcasm and hyperbole, but it is grounded in the science of mindfulness. Wax has developed her own 6-week mindfulness course, which is shorter than most approaches (8 weeks seems to be the standard). Ruby Wax shows us how to de-frazzle for good by making simple changes that give us time to breathe, reflect and live in the moment.And she ventured into some psychiatric diagnosis that could be very disempowering for people struggling with mental distress. She is a very knowledgeable psychology practitioner and that comes over in her scientific explanations throughout the book. Drawing on her own personal experiences, it is a combination of anecdotes, simple psychology and some practical exercises to help bring mindfulness to life. I think Ruby's perspective on this subject is addictive to read and has opened me up to trying methods I wouldn't of known about and to address my own thoughts. Ruby Wax has an extraordinary mind , and she has brought it to bear with trademark wit and searing honesty .

This book, as well as being mostly a fun read (when it's not being raw and real about the authors more troubling experiences) is filled with interesting information about the brain and mind. Letti un paio di libri introduttivi, però, devo ammettere di aver problemi a vedere la separazione tra "notare" e "pensare", o meglio, a capire cosa si intenda per "osservare i propri pensieri" e cose del genere. It's an easy-to-understand introduction to mindfulness, weaved together with Ruby's trademark wit and humour.

I know I'm definitely guilty of switching on the old autopilot and going through half my day only partially aware. It isn't the first book of its kind, but it is probably the first of its kind with an injection of wit and humour. I liked this book enormously, it made me laugh, as well as educating me more about how the brain works and how we can improve our cognitive health.
