I have recently been coaching a couple of people whose issues include being more mindful – that is, being able to destress and unclutter their minds and find a way of “switching off” and relaxing.
This has prompted me to share the resources that I usually offer people who want to explore this area:
There are some great resources on Mindfulness at Work here, including a video that the “guru” did for Google. http://www.forbes.com/sites/drewhansen/2012/10/31/a-guide-to-mindfulness-at-work/
A really good book is Mindfulness: A practical guide to finding peace in a frantic world
The seminal text is this one by Jon Kabat Zinn, who developed a lot of this stuff, and who is featured in the video in the link above. Full Catastrophe Living: How to cope with stress, pain and illness using mindfulness meditation
Finally, lots of people find the Headspace app really useful.
I also love this (excuse the “rude” word!)
I’d love to know which of these resources appeals to you, and how you got on!
