A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook
Stress and pain are nearly unavoidable in our daily lives; they are part of the human condition. This stress can often leave us feeling irritable, tense, overwhelmed, and burned-out. The key to maintaining balance is responding to stress not with frustration and self-criticism, but with mindful, nonjudgmental awareness of our bodies and minds. Impossible? Actually, it's easier than it seems.
In just weeks, you can learn mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), a clinically proven program for alleviating stress, anxiety, panic, depression, chronic pain, and a wide range of medical conditions. Taught in classes and clinics worldwide, this powerful approach shows you how to focus on the present moment in order to permanently change the way you handle stress. As you work through A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook, you'll learn how to replace stress-promoting habits with mindful ones-a skill that will last a lifetime.

I wasn't particularly stressed out when I picked up this book, but I was looking for more ways to bring mindfulness into my daily life. Now I'm on vacation and working my way through the informal practices. Very useful! Read full review
Excellent program to learn how to live with yourself through difficult times without having to resort to medication to calm yourself down. There are hundreds of books on the topic but I have found this book to be a more simple and practical guide for learning the steps to a more healthful way of handling the challenges I'm faced with at this point in my life. The CD is well done and now they are available on YouTube from Elisha Goldstein's next book: The NOW Effect.
