Book Review - Mindfulness for Students: Embracing Now, Looking to the Future

Mindfulness for Students: Embracing Now, Looking to the Future

About the Book

Life can be tough. With so many decisions to make at such a critical time, it’s easy to feel weighed down. What’s more, there is the pressure to gain good grades, to find a good job, to be a good person. Your mind may feel clogged up with no way to filter your circulating thoughts and pressures. From a young age we are taught the significance of a solid education and a fruitful career, yet with such an emphasis on academic and monetary success we often fail to prioritise a healthy mind and body. It is essential to know how to deal with life’s many challenges; Mindfulness for Students will help you.

Through insightful ideas and personal anecdotes, this book will introduce you to the many benefits and applications of mindfulness - from mindful breathing, eating, exercising, sleeping, studying and communicating. There will be opportunities within each chapter to have a go at mindful meditations ranging from three to twenty minutes. There is no right or wrong approach, just what works for you. Mindfulness is a way of being, and this book will help you lay the foundations for a mindful future. Choose to be mindful and live your life in the moment, living fully and wholeheartedly, aware of self and others.

My Take on the Book
This is a great book. As someone that has a high school students this is a book that has so many practical tips to follow to help you not only understand mindfulness, but also better work to master mindfulness techniques. Throughout the book there are personal experiences shared that will help the reader better understand how stress and anxiety impacted the author and how through these techniques she was able to better master her own body and from that her life. This is a great book to quiet down the noisy world and to help build more resources to survive high school and beyond!
