Giveaway Time – Two Mindfulness books up for grabs!

I have two books up for grabs, which I am going to run as two separate giveaway type competitions.

Book 1 giveaway: is this magazine, (bookazine,) for one reader. This giveaway is running due to me not realising I had already bought it earlier on, so I would like to give this one away to one lucky reader.

This magazine, (bookazine) is called “The Mindfulness Book” and is certainly something to keep on your bookshelf and refer back to later.

Book giveaway 2: is “The Little Book of Mindfulness,” by Dr Patrizia Collard, which you will remember I did a book review about this here.

Blog share: “My Go-To Mindfulness.”

“My go-to mindfulness” recently came to visit my blog, leaving a comment and I thought I’d check out this bog and I am glad I did. I would like to share this blog with you as I think you will find it interesting too. I have talked about mindfulness a fair bit on my blog as I practise and so this blog will give me more inspiration and ideas I have not thought of. Visit this first post on this blog to find why mindfulness is a good practise for you and why you are there, take a look at all the other posts, as you will find inspiration.

My go-to mindfulness.

Book review: “The Little Book of Mindfulness,” by Dr Patrizia Collard.

“The Little Book of Mindfulness,” by Dr Patrizia Collard is a “little” book, measuring only 15cm by 11cm. It has 96 pages of what hopes to be inspiration for the reader, of simple 5 to 10 minute practices of mindfulness.
I have read all the book for inspiration and although I have not practised any yet, there are many I am familiar with and if you have, or do Yoga, or Pilates yourself, then you will be familiar with some of the suggestions in this book too. But it is still perfect reminder.
What about the ones that I have given me new inspiration?
One example was ‘mindful eating,’ examining the food you are about to eat, looking at it like you have never seen it before, like a raisin for example. Holding it in the palm of your hand and noticing the difference in size, colour, form, weight and shape. Observing the ridges and the texture of the surface, so your vision can really have a feast on this. There are other suggestions while holding this fruit, before it leads onto smelling it, then tasting it and observing at that point as you chew the flavours, the change of consistency of the raisin and what you may notice completely new to you.

The contents of this book:

  • Introduction
  • Being in the now
  • Accept and respond
  • Making your mind up
  • Simply be
  • Mindful eating
  • Gratitude and compassion
  • Everyday mindfulness
  • Acknowledgments

A blog post shared. Do visit this bog and continue reading there, a very interesting post.

As a kid, I used to love watching Avatar the Last Airbender, a cartoon series about a young avatar who had to restore balance in the world. Although it was just a TV show, one of the lessons it taught me is how there is something we can learn from each of the four basic elements […]

Doodle and Mindfulness

I have bought four books recently, from Amazon. Two of them are doodling books and the other two are mindfulness books, although doodling books fall under mindfulness too. (My opinion.)

My doodle books.

My mindfulness books.

I am going to be in doodle heaven, but although they are not meant to be, I may find a challenge at times. But all good to get me inspired and my brain in a different mental gear.

The mindfulness books in the last photo will be a challenge too, as one gets me thinking and the other a motivation to try what is in the book. The book, “Start where you are,” from flicking through, will give me some self-awareness, maybe help with self-esteem, because of this book being a self-reflection type book.

The coming months ahead, as I dip in and out of these books will be interesting.
