    There are very few spiritual leaders who can communicate with the simplicity and succinctness of Thich Nhat Hanh As wise as the Dalai Lama is, I ve only been able to really understand one of the books he s written and I think that was because he had a co author It seems like he contemplates this stuff so much, you know, like it s his job, that when he s just trying to talk to a regular person about it, there s a gap that can t be crossed That isn t a problem in Thich s Mindfulness Series.Thic There are very few spiritual leaders who can communicate with the simplicity and succinctness of Thich Nhat Hanh As wise as the Dalai Lama is, I ve only been able to really understand one of the books he s written and I think that was because he had a co author It seems like he contemplates this stuff so much, you know, like it s his job, that when he s just trying to talk to a regular person about it, there s a gap that can t be crossed That isn t a problem in Thich s Mindfulness Series.Thich encourages the reader to find the quiet within He saysWe already have calmness in us we just need to know how to make it manifestpg 14, ebook How do we do this Through focus, breathing, mindfulness, and relaxation.One of Thich s methods for connecting with inner peace that really resonated with me was that we should take lazy daysA lazy day is a day for us to be without any scheduled activities We just let the day unfold naturally, timelessly When we have unscheduled time, we tend to get bored, seek entertainment, or cast about for something to do A lazy day is a chance to train ourselves not to be afraid of doing nothing You might think that not doing anything is a waste of time But that s not truepg 32, ebook Not to brag, but I rather excel at lazy days.Anyone out there have a partner who snores I do Thich invites us to incorporate the snores into our relaxation practiceSometimes you have to share a room with someone who snores You may get irritated But with mindfulness you can bring about compassion You can lean on the sound of snoring in order to go to sleep Listen and say that this brings you home to the here and nowpg 42, ebook I think this could be a difficult exercise, but I m willing to give it a try Ever tell yourself that relaxation meditation is too hard Thich addresses that concern tooWhen you sit and watch television, you don t make any effort That s why you can sit there for a long time When you sit in meditation, if you struggle, you won t be able to sit for very long Please imitate the way you sit in your living room Effortlessness is the key to success. pg 76 ebook If you can watch tv, you can meditate It s silly but it reminds me of that line from Dodgeball if you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball.Highly recommended for anyone looking to introducerelaxation into their lives and isn t that everybody Some read alikes Relax RX A Self Hypnosis Program for Health and Well Being by Steven Gurgevich very relaxing, all you have to do is listen , Guided Mindfulness Meditation by Jon Kabat Zinn simple and relaxing , or 10% Happier How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self Help That Actually Works by Dan Harris a regular guy teaches himself to meditate a light hearted memoir

    Thich Nhat Hanh says that when we relax, we become calm water, and we will reflect reality as it is If we re not calm, the image we reflect will be distorted When the image is distorted by our minds, it s not the reality, and it causes lots of suffering This is a little book, and I mean teeny weeny, with a big message Relaxation is important, nay, vital for your well being And if you don t think that s important, then think about how your well being affects not only the well being of your Thich Nhat Hanh says that when we relax, we become calm water, and we will reflect reality as it is If we re not calm, the image we reflect will be distorted When the image is distorted by our minds, it s not the reality, and it causes lots of suffering This is a little book, and I mean teeny weeny, with a big message Relaxation is important, nay, vital for your well being And if you don t think that s important, then think about how your well being affects not only the well being of your loved ones, but that of the entire world It s enough to make anyone feel rather anxious This little I keep saying that, don t I book has one or two page meditations to think about And by meditations, I don t mean the Om kind, though it has those too, but the things to ponder kind There are also cute illustrations to help remind you to not take yourself so seriously Feel free to dip in and out at your leisure This little there I go again gem is a reminder that we are waythan our to do lists

    A very small book with a very big message Th ch Nh t Hahn explains how relaxation is not just something we should do but something we need to do in such a hectic world He includes simple breathing techniques and chants to help you learn to relax.

    Whenever animals in the forest are wounded, they rest They look for a very quiet place and just stay there without moving for many days They know it s the best way for their body to heal During this time, they may not even eat or drink The wisdom of stopping and healing is still alive in animals, but we human beings have lost the capacity to rest I hope someday I may learn to let go and relax whenever I want to and be free of all these feelings that bring too much weight to carry around..

    This was a really pleasant read and something I needed right now Mindfulness is something that I ve always strived to incorporate into my daily life since I m often either stuck in the past or worrying about the future I definitely recommend this

    A tiny, adorable, powerful book with charming and minimalist illustrations not enough of them, in my opinion , and the always thought provoking and moving wisdom of Thich Nhat Hanh.
