Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Five Good Minutes® in Your Body offers simple yet effective activities to help us restore and recharge our relationships with our bodies. With these tools we can create a life that is more fulfilling-a life in which we are no longer at the mercy of the stress of our day. The practices can transform the mundane into the extraordinary, and renew our sense of vitality and passion for life.

Learning to be mindful of our bodies can be hard in this fast-paced, stressful world. Some of us live from the neck up, forgetting to nourish and appreciate-or even be comfortable in-our bodies. In the western world we often live nearly entirely in the mind. Through mindful practices, this book will help bring us back into our bodies and help us reduce stress, breathe again, and actually enjoy our bodies. We're also incredibly self-critical of our bodies. Who among us hasn't wished they were just a little skinnier, more muscular, taller, had a narrower foot, darker hair, lighter eyes… the list of our inadequacies is endless. We are very self-critical of our bodies and often have distorted perceptions of ourselves. We needlessly compare ourselves to some unattainable-and airbrushed-ideal. This often leads to feeling cut off from our bodies and, ultimately, disembodied. We then end up making unhealthy choices, such as eating foods that don't make us feel good, drinking too much, or even over-exercising, all in an effort to try to feel better about ourselves.

Synopsis:

Learning to be mindful of our bodies can be hard in this fast-paced, stressful world. Most people live from the neck up, forgetting to nourish and appreciate--or even be comfortable in--their bodies. Almost everyone has wished they were just a little skinnier, more muscular, taller, had a narrower foot, darker hair, lighter eyes... the list of inadequacies is endless. Through mindful practices, this book will help bring the reader back into his or her body to reduce stress and leave feelings of inadequacy behind. This series of short, simple practices helps the reader to reconnect with his or her body and find the peace that comes with total self-acceptance.

Synopsis:

In Five Good Minutes® in Your Body the authors provide 100 simple, fun activities, mindfulness exercises, and visualizations that you can do in just five minutes to learn to love, accept, and feel a renewed sense of appreciation for your body.
