How doing less and noticing more can help us thrive in a stressed-out world
"* 'The Mindful Manifesto helps us to "be" more and to "do" less. It's old wisdom backed by modern science, beautifully described.' - Professor Lord Layard * 'This book is really important. Mindfulness is the way forward for dealing with depression and anxiety, and for general well-being.' - Ruby Wax * 'Absolutely my favourite book of 2010, in which GP Dr Jonty Heaversedge and writer/meditation teacher Ed Halliwell explain how to access peace of mind by using simple techniques connecting mind, brain and body. And how not to beat yourself up for having negative, damaging thoughts (we all do). Lovely and essential reading.' - You Magazine, Mail On Sunday * 'Wise, sensible and helpful for all forms of emotional disorders from depression to anxiety and addiction. This book on mindfulness is a great step to finding peace of mind.' - Sally Brampton, author of Shoot the Damn Dog"
