Synopsis

A growing body of scientific research indicates that mindfulness can reduce stress and improve mental and physical health. Countless people who have tried it say it's improved their quality of life. Simply put, mindfulness is the practice of paying steady and full attention, without judgment or criticism, to our moment-to-moment experience. Here is a collection of the best writing on what mindfulness is, why we should practice it, and how to apply it in daily life, from leading figures in the field.

Selections include:

Leading thinking Jon Kabat-Zinn on the essence of mindfulness, stress reduction, and positive change
Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh on the transformative power of mindful breathing
Professor of psychiatry Daniel Siegel, MD, on how mindfulness benefits the brain
Physician and meditation teacher Jan Chozen Bays, MD, on how and why to practice mindful eating
Pioneering psychologist Ellen Langer on how mindfulness can change the understanding and treatment of disease
