Publisher Comments:

Anger is a natural emotion—and a part of what makes us human. But when you lose control of your anger, it can get in the way of meaningful relationships, successful careers, and ultimately, feelings of happiness and enjoyment. In this highly anticipated book, renowned mindfulness expert and author of Calming Your Anxious Mind Jeff Brantley offers a breakthrough approach using mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and compassion practices to help you better handle the anger, fear, and hostile emotions that can wreak havoc at home, work, and in relationships. In addition, you will also learn important self-awareness skills to help you stop overreacting and improve communication with others.

While other self-help books focus on traditional anger management, Brantley offers solutions that give you personal control over the experience of anger in your life. Inside, youll discover the three major meditative approaches to soothing anger: stabilizing mind and body through concentrating your attention mindfully; using compassionate attention and reflection to disarm the energy of your anger; and learning to use wise understanding about the impermanent and “conditioned” nature of your angry reactions in order to diminish your vulnerability to angers power. If you have difficulty with anger, you may be quick to blame others or act in aggressive ways. Unfortunately, this kind of thinking can often leave you feeling alone, alienated, and unhappy. If you are ready to make real, lasting changes, this book can provide you with the skills needed to manage and and transform your anger so that you can live a happier, healthier life.

Review:

"Chronically angry people suffer loneliness, isolation, shame, and regret; experience dysfunctional interpersonal relationships; and are at increased risk for stress-related illnesses. Brantley's primer recommends meditation based in mindfulness, compassion, and wisdom so those crippled by anger can eventually 'enjoy a happier, kinder, life.' Borrowing broadly from Buddhist tradition and modern Zen master Thich Nhat Han, mindfulness guru Jon Kabat-Zin, emotional intelligence expert Daniel Goleman, and others, the author shows that the best way to learn 'to uncouple the ‘thought train' that carries anger' is to be present in the moment and make a commitment to a daily mindfulness meditation practice. Brantley (Calming Your Anxious Mind) employs the three basic mindfulness skills of intention, attention, and attitude ,and the seven core elements of mindfulness practice — non-judging, non-striving, trust, patience, acceptance, a beginner's mind, and letting go — as initiation into a personal meditation habit. In time, fear (usually the source of anger) dissipates and self-compassion and understanding emerge. Guided meditations appear throughout, in addition to individual stories, and data from studies on the benefits of mindfulness. Although measured and supportive, the book reads more as a rehash of accepted therapies than a new modality." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Leading mindfulness expert and author of Calming Your Anxious Mind, Jeffrey Brantley, MD, offers daily mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) meditations to help you gain control of your emotional reactions, improve your relationships, and cultivate peace, balance, and well-being in your life.

 
Anger is an intense emotion that everyone deals with, but when feelings of anger spiral out of control they can get in the way of living a full and happy life. If you struggle with intense irritability or angry outbursts, you may feel like your reactions are beyond your control. But this simply isnt true—you, and only you, have the power to change your life. You just need to be shown the way.

 
In Daily Meditations for Calming Your Angry Mind, Brantley details three different paths—or approaches—based in mindfulness and meditative perspectives, that you can choose from to take control of your anger, and your life. First, youll learn to disengage from your anger by pausing to be mindful when anger is happening. Second, youll discover ways to cool your anger using meditative practices to nurture kindness and compassion towards yourself and others. And third, youll find tips for practicing mindfulness to transform your understanding and realize your anger is not an identity, a defect, or a permanent condition.

 
These three practical and easy-to-use approaches to anger management have a strong basis in both ancient and modern traditions. With this book as your guide, you can finally overcome the tumultuous thoughts, feelings, and reactions that have been holding you back in life.

Synopsis:

The 100 simple practices found in Five Good Minutes® are designed to help even the busiest person start the day right. Using just five minutes of mindfulness, relaxation, or imagery techniques during their morning routines, readers can set their intentions and greet the day feeling calm, centered, and energized.

What difference can five minutes make in the crazy, nonstop course of a sixteen-hour day? For people feeling overwhelmed with responsibility, bored with the same tired routine, or frustrated about how to create meaning in their lives, a little time well spent can lead to extraordinary changes. This book shows readers how to dramatically improve their lives in just a few moments each day. The concept is powerfully simple: Readers take the time each morning to be fully present, to set a clear intention for themselves, and to really engage in any of 100 fun and easy-to-follow practices. Soon they will discover that amazing things can happen in just five minutes.

The book provides guided imagery, relaxation, mindfulness, and meditation practices-fun activities that relieve stress and create meaning and purpose in the reader's day. These practices help readers feel good, get motivated, and become inspired to change their lives for the better. Over time, these activities become guideposts readers will return to throughout the day, providing energy and inspiration when they need them most. In other words, the time readers of this book take for themselves in the morning might just be the five good minutes that change their lives.

If you think, "I'm not an angry person, I don't need to read this book," wait! This book is about a lot more than just anger. It explains the concept of Mindfulness and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, - something that we could all use.
I learned a lot of useful practices but the most important thing I learned was that "being angry at your anger does not help."
The Practice exercises were great, particularly bringing the exercises into daily life. I will really cherish this book.
