Also, I use this book when I need to get into a balanced mood if I face a stressful situation. It is a tremendous help!
After a recent relapse of insomnia from extreme jet lag, I fell back into the trap and spent weeks with no sleep and heightened anxiety. I came across this book and by the second day of reading I was already back to sleeping soundly again. Learning to mindfully observe the present and accept whatever thoughts, fears, and sensations creep up at night are key and what the book teaches you. It can seem daunting at first, and it honestly is. I mean, who wants to sit and accept the thoughts and feeling they've been trying so hard to avoid all this time? But, with practice and patience it gets easier over time.
I have "relapsed" a night or two and fallen back into negative thinking, but the book addresses this and guides you back on the right path. When sleeplessness does return, the book can be used as a "tune up" to get you back on track.
Highly recommended for anyone who is ready to get their life back.
