I Am Here Now: Field Notes for a Curious and Creative Mind
by The Mindfulness Project
Mindfulness is the simple and powerful practice of training your attention. It's simple in that it's just about paying attention to what's happening here and now, and powerful because it can keep you from getting lost in thoughts about the future or past, which often generate more stress on top of the real pressures of everyday life.While learning to live in the moment, the joyful mindfulness exercises, meditations, coloring pages, and habit-breakers in this beautifully designed and illustrated book will challenge your powers of observation, investigation, and cultivation while bringing new awareness to your senses, thoughts, and emotions.I Am Here Now inspires readers to explore the world with greater curiosity and find moments of mindfulness in everyday life, while unleashing your creativity along the way.
I have the spanish edition of this little journal, and when I bought it I didn't know what was 'Mindfulness'. What I understand, it's the action of paying attention to now, so you won't get lost in thoughts about your past or future, worries, etc, that makes your life more stressful.
It's a very personal journal. I recommend doing the activities when you are alone, for me it was better to concentrate. I usually keep it on my nightstand, that way it was easier to not forget to do it.
