I personally saw Dr. Sood speak about his work and was so excited to see the medical and scientific community embracing and endorsing meditation as a holistic approach to improving ones life. GREAT BOOK!!!!
Dr Sood has written one of the best books on mind-body medicine ever. In simple, short chapters, he explains how stress affects our health using the latest medical research and what we can do about it. As he says, we are all guilty of overthinking but it is mostly about the past or the future which is where all our anxieties come from. We spend little time in the present where there is little to be anxious about. This is MINDFULNESS and we will not control our thinking without training our minds. For anyone who feels anxious, stressed, or worried and wants a way to manage theses feelings without medication or go through therapy, this book is mandatory. Great book!
The reader will find maximum value by "being in dialogue" with the author through completion of the exercises presented. Dr. Sood suggests the book be approached with an open mind, since not all of the examples given will apply directly to every reader.
After some rather technical information about the brain and the mind early in the book, the author deals with some very practical issues such as living in the present moment, why and how to forgive, acceptance of unalterable situations. He discusses compassion and gives exercises to help the reader develop that characteristic. There is a section devoted to meaning in life and how to find one's "true meaning". Gratitude is emphasized and why it's practice is important. Finally Dr. Sood deals with meditation, faith, prayer and the divine. This is all done in a helpful, non-offensive manner.
The author makes liberal use of acronyms as an assist in remembering important elements. Shaded text that is somewhat technical is not considered essential to the nontechnical reader.
After reading and appreciating this book myself, I gave a copy to my grandson, a newly graduated psychologist, who is finding certain elements of the book applicable in his own practice.
This is a great book. The author gives two simple steps to emotional well-being, along with tons of deeper explanation around the steps. I feel like the author has a lot of substance and wisdom to share, and he explains it well.
I like the author's science-based approach to the subject. The author's ideas and advice appear to be rooted in recent brain research. I'm leery of "touchy-feely" New-Age-type self-help books, so I was happy to see over 500 footnotes in this book from scientific journals. The author has an MD and is the director of integrative medicine at the Mayo Clinic, so he comes with credentials than inspire some confidence.
Probably no effort will benefit you more in your life.
