Editorial Reviews


"After reviewing the book, I strongly suggest that every nurse across the globe purchase a copy, and that every school of nursing make this book part of their required reading."
June Kaminsky, Canadian Journal of Nursing Informatics
"Every staff nurse reading this book will say, "YES! This is nursing!" Every nurse often asks the question, "How can I manage that situation better?" Within the wisdom of this book are solutions. The suggested self-care, guidance, and techniques will raise the quality of nursing care and patient satisfaction."
Carole Ann Drick, PhD, President, American Holistic Nurses Association
"Carmel Sheridan brings her experience in the nursing field together with her understanding of mindfulness practice to share a wealth of practical resources. All this is in service of supporting nurses to develop essential self care skills. The result is a book that could make a great contribution to nursing school cirricula around the globe."
Sharon Salzberg, Author of Loving Kindness and Real Happiness
"A much-needed, well-written, and full-of-wisdom guide to help care for the caregiver. Nurses and other healing professionals will benefit immensely from these clear and helpful mindfulness tools and practices. I imagine a quiet revolution in hospitals as nurses begin to embody mindfulness and compassion, transforming their own lives and the lives of everyone they touch."
Diana Winston,  UCLA Mindful Awareness Research Center. Author of Fully Present: The Science, Art, and Practice of Mindfulness.
"This book should be a part of every nurse's education. As healthcare providers, we need to know ourselves and that we have needs, too. These needs can be met through mindfulness and compassion."
Bernie Siegel, MD, Author of A Book of Miracles
"Mindfulness is all the rage right now, and if you do not understand it and don't know what it can do for you and your personal and professional life, then this book will help. It guides you through the who, what, why, and how of the practice of mindfulness-all through the eyes of an author who relates it to nurses' everyday lives and tasks. Carmel shows how it can improve your own life and the care you give to patients. There are lots of practical elements to help you start practicing mindfulness, from the moment you pick up the book, to encourage you to make mindfulness a daily part of your life so that you can enjoy living more."
Jenni Middleton, Editor, Nursing Times
"An incredibly valuable tool for all nurses, whether beginning their career, reaching the point of burnout, or somewhere in between. If you are wondering where your love of the job has gone, here are achievable exercises to reconnect with that. The love is still potentially there but often lost under the stress and exhaustion that is all too common in the nursing profession. This book offers practical tools for nurses who want to serve but also to nurture themselves."
Bronnie Ware, Author of The Top Five Regrets of the Dying
"Drawing on recent groundbreaking research in the field of neuroscience, Sheridan offers an extremely readable and insightful guidebook to help nurses cultivate resilience and therapeutic presence and revitalize their practice. An excellent resource for nurses in both clinical and educational settings."
Janice M Zeller, PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor and Graduate Program Director, North Park University School of Nursing
"This book offers hardworking nurses a path forward. Finally, there is an accessible and effective way to avoid burnout and become healthy, balanced, and grounded. An invaluable resource!"
Barbara Dossey, PhD, RN, FAAN, Author of Nurse Coaching: Integrative Approaches for Health
"Learning how to better care for oneself and one's patients is what Carmel offers in this much-needed and practical guide for nurses wishing to develop greater mindfulness in their practice and personal lives."
Lois Howland, PhD, MSN, RN, Associate Professor, Hahn School of Nursing and Health Science, University of California San Diego; Senior Teacher, Center for Mindfulness, UCSD  

From the Author

Nursing is considered to be one of the most stressful professions, putting nurses at high risk for stress-related illness. Mindfulness and compassion - the practices of focusing awareness on the present moment, and relating kindly to ourselves and others  - offer nurses powerful resources to cope with stress. These practices help cultivate presence and empathy in everyday life, improve awareness and attention, and boost compassion for oneself and others. With a new understanding of everyday mindfulness and compassion, nurses can overcome the myriad contemporary challenges inherent in the workplace--and in their own lives.
