From depression to more self-acceptance, Ruby Wax’ account of her own experience, breaks down the concept of mindfulness; far from the wuzzy, new age vibe some imagine. She breaks down its concepts (acceptance, compassion, etc.) in a understandable and very accessible way. She also links it to neuro-science, because it’s all down to our brain.
The book is somewhat a personal account and a handbook of how to practice mindfulness in any life circumstances. I found it more oriented to people who have children, as the end focuses on mindfulness for (and with) babies and teenagers.
I found it funny and entertaining. Yet I still learnt something and have a few inputs of how to implement mindfulness in our (hectic) everyday life.
