10-Minute Mind­ful­ness: 71 Habits for Liv­ing in the Present Mo­ment, by SJ Scott and Bar­rie Daven­port, €11.42 Mind­ful­ness (stay­ing present in the mo­ment) is a fash­ion­able per­spec­tive on healthy self –man­age­ment. As we age, is­sues can arise in the way we think and lead our lives, that trig­ger anx­i­ety and un­rest, such as re­grets about the past, or fears about the fu­ture. In this book the au­thors call this ‘un­con­scious liv­ing’ — not be­ing aware of what lifestyle choices we are mak­ing, our habits and thoughts, our values and life pri­or­i­ties, which lead to the un­ease. Readers are of­fered a se­lec­tion of “71 mind­ful­ness habits” to choose from. One of the au­thors, Bar­rie Daven­port, shares the long-term ben­e­fits she has got from the prac­tice, SJ Scott is rel­a­tively new to mind­ful­ness.
