About this title.
Enrich your life with the power of mindfulness.
A demanding family life, a domineering boss, a cold relationship or a grim financial situation: when we are convinced that others or external circumstances cause us stress and struggle, we condemn ourselves to naming and blaming and moaning and groaning. What we don’t realise is that it is our own inner judgements and expectations that make life difficult and grey. Life is not to blame, our thinking is. And that, actually, is the good news! Now, by paying attention to the present moment, we can step out of our tired thinking process and create fresh, sensible responses to pain from the past and fear of the future. Mindfulness offers a helping hand in tough times and transforms our worries into exciting and meaningful life experiences.

About this Author.
Marisa Garau is the daughter of a Dutch mother and a Sardinian father. For over a decade she ran her own advertising agency in Amsterdam much the way that a mouse runs its own treadmill. Only after years of senseless complaining did this full-time stress junkie decide to sort out her unhealthy attitude and she signed up for a course of mindfulness training. Since then her life has changed profoundly: she moved from busy Holland to beautiful New Zealand and is now a dedicated, happy author and publisher.
