SAMPLE EXERCISE: Let it Be
Conquering Stressful Thoughts
Accepting your life and your feelings is vital to being in the present. When you do not accept an emotion, it stays active in your mind and creates stress. Do not confuse acceptance with resignation. Accepting something does not mean you are passive and helpless. The following exercise will help you learn the art of accepting the emotions that accompany situations you wish were different.
1. Breathe slow, deep breaths and focus on your existence in this moment. Be aware of what you hear, or see, or smell. Let yourself stay very present.
2. When a difficult thought comes into your mind, just watch it. See it as a thought and watch yourself having the thought. There is a difference between being in the thought and watching it.
3. Be aware of the emotion. Look at the thought as simply a thought. You do not need to feel bad about it. Don’t judge it. Don’t fight it. You are just having a thought.
4. Keep focused on your breath. If the thought stays there, keep watching it. If it moves on, stay focused on your body.
- YOU NEED: A quiet, comfortable place to sit or stand.
- TIME: 5 minutes
- AN EXERCISE FOR: Self-acceptance

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
That pretty much sums up the content of this book. Many of the techniques and suggestions are ones I've figured out over time or learned from my father's example.
The book is difficult to review because, to give a fair review, the reviewer must read the whole book, which is not the way the book is intended to be used. An outline of the techniques is given at the beginning and then different problems are put in chapter form with a list of suggestions adapted for a particular situation. However, a reviewer cannot wait, for example, to feel stress while in a grocery store and then read that section.
The suggestions are, of course, necessarily quite repetitive. They are also printed in a tiny font which seemed not very user friendly.
While I was reading, I thought of my son, daughter-in-law, and my medically fragile little granddaughter, who has multiple disabilities. The child's syndrome is so rare that there is no large organization disseminating information and advocacy--just an international online group of parents (some have the only child in their nation known to have the syndrome) who become very close while sharing suggestions and support. Now and then, one of the children dies with no warning or discernible reason. The stress those parents face is overwhelming. Parents who often provide 24-hour a day care and must fight a constant battle to get adequate medical care for their child cannot spend the time needed to learn mindfulness or to practice it. I wish there were suggestions for them.
This is a book that will greatly help some people and can offer some assistance to nearly all people. I don't see it providing much for me. I think I will go lie on the living room rug and count my blessings.

The book is very well written and is really easy to read and understand. It does not require the commitment to read from the beginning to the end. Great price point too.
