Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies Review

Posted on Sep 6 2013 - 10:44pm by Susan Bewley

Do you practice, or want to practice, meditation? Personally, I am hoping to try learning to meditate, having heard how helpful it has been for others in my life. As someone with an anxiety disorder, I am hoping that it will help me. One of the techniques that has really got my attention lately is mindfulness meditation. This technique is meant to help you restore balance to your personal life and get rid of negative feelings, distractions, and judgmental thoughts. When Wiley books asked me if I would like to review their Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies, I was pretty excited! Once my free book came in the mail, I couldn't wait to start going through this book!

Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies: What is It

Are you someone who is trying to practice mindfulness? If so, the Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies will be the perfect addition to your collection. This book focuses on different meditation techniques to help you find balance in your life by eliminating negativity, distracting, and judgmental thoughts. Through this step by step guide, you can go through each lesson in the book and practice some of the most common mindfulness techniques. With wonderful tutorials and downloadable content, you can easily find inner peace using this latest For Dummies book!

Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies: Quality & Usefulness

I'll be the first to admit that I was very confused when I first started this book. While I knew this was a workbook, I hoped I would be learning a bit more about mindfulness. Since I didn't have access to the Mindfulness for Dummies book, I had to work with what I had. Luckily, many of the exercises in the book are easy to understand and have step by step instructions. Even if you don't follow this way of thinking, the exercises are perfect for anyone who is trying to meditate. I'll admit, I really like many of these exercises and look forward to trying them myself. Some of them I think will work very well with technique I learned in yoga, making this book a perfect addition to my collection. I'm just hoping at some point I can get the primary book that goes alongside this one to better understand Mindfulness.

Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies: Overall

From what I have seen going through this book, Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies seems like a wonderful companion book to Mindfulness for Dummies. As someone who knew nothing about mindful before this review, I was a bit lost at first but was still able to enjoy many of the exercises. If you are planning on purchasing Mindfulness for Dummies, I highly recommend this book and give it an A- rating! While I wish it went into a bit more explanation in the beginning, it is still a great book!

Mindfulness Workbook for Dummies: Where to Purchase

    Thanks for this review, I do practice meditation but this sounds like something I could use with other people who just don't get it.

    This could help a lot of people. I know that they use techniques like this in "anger management" and it seems that a lot of people need that advice nowadays. People need simple, easy-to-follow instructions on centering themselves and releasing anxiety, this book looks like it might achieve that!

    I often read comments in social media about mindfulness and didn't know there was a dummies book on it.  I have gone to amazon and added both books to my wishlist in the off-chance a friend or family member needs suggestions.  Thanks for the review.

    It would be great if they had a chapter on falling asleep.  I have such a awfull time! I have tried mediation to bring down my heartbeat, it works and then sometimes helps me fall asleep.

    I am going to have to check this book out! I also have anxity and I have been trying to self help in a way. I am on medication, but I no longer have insurance and this could really help me out.

    I have wanted to try medidation but a couple books that I bought were hard to read and apply. I love Dummies books in general so I bet this one is good. I will have to order it – thanks for sharing your perspective.
