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.

It’s time to live in the present! Simply stated, mindfulness is the practice of living in the present. It’s choosing to focus on the here and now but without getting swept up in mental drama. Sounds easy enough, but it’s actually really hard. Our brains are wired to think, think, think all the time. Whether we’re thinking about something that happened a year ago or an hour ago, our thoughts take us away from focusing on right here, right now. Author Tracey Moore Lukkarila knows this from experience. As a sufferer of anxiety and clinical depression, she has spent a lifetime experimenting with different ways to manage her condition. Mindfulness has become the tool she uses every day to calm the internal chaos, creating space to breathe. Mindfulness is an excellent tool for depression, anxiety, and obsessive thinking. It's like a personal trainer for your brain, gently teaching you how to move past the negative mental ruminations that keep us stuck. With it, you can learn to quiet your mind and sharpen your focus. Tracey created this journal to share mindfulness techniques that work for her. Each day, you'll write down a few things to be grateful for, getting you into the practice of shifting focus away from judgment, negativity, worries, training your brain to focus more on the positive and to consider things you overlook and take for granted. You'll practice reframing negative thoughts to consider more positive, reasonable alternatives, and you'll pat yourself on the back for the things you do each day, big and small, to bring greater awareness to your impact in the world. Additionally, you'll be given specific, easy-to-do mindfulness exercises to quickly get yourself out of your head and into your life. You’ll gain a greater connection to yourself, others, and the world around you.

This e-book is a shorter version of the paperback, with the same beautifully designed content excluding the practical exercise pages - perfect to dip in and out, and choose which bits work best for you. Join the Calm revolution. Modern life is hectic and relentless: trains delayed, endless emails filling the inbox, kids squabbling before bedtime... There has never been a more important time to rediscover your pause button. Calm is the book that will show you how to take back a little bit of peace, space and all-important calm. This book contains the simple tools, tricks and habits that will change the rest your life. It is a practical and pleasurable guide to twenty-first century mindfulness. Regular meditation is medically proven to be good for you - it increases focus and creativity, productivity and job satisfaction, mental and even physical health. But in reality most of us don't have time to sit on a cushion with our eyes closed for half an hour every day. And many people associate meditation with hard work and huge lifestyle shifts: you might be imagining Buddhist monks locked in a mountain retreat and living off gruel... This is where Calm comes in. Calm is about simple, achievable habits that work with the demands of your busy life instead of pretending those demands don't exist. Calm does not require specialist training: it uses abilities that every single one of us is born with, like creativity, spontaneity and simply noticing the world around you. Calm is not a set of rules that you need to worry about following or breaking. It is inspirational, practical and non-prescriptive. Onerous, time-consuming meditation might seem out of reach but everyone can achieve calm - including you. Calm combines extracts from fascinating neurological research with wisdom from history's great thinkers and the real-life experiences of individuals across the globe. It demystifies mindfulness and shows you the many simple ways to be mindful while carrying on with your life. It is also a beautifully crafted object, filled with artwork and artistry, that will change your perspective by showing you the pleasures of the world anew. Take a walk with nowhere to go, savour a chocolate on the tip of your tongue, plant a seed, doodle aimlessly, turn off your mobile phone for five short minutes. Smile, breathe and go slowly. Michael Acton Smith has written a game-changing book, one that will finally balance everyone's need for calm with the realities of modern life. Join the Calm revolution.

HOW TO BE HAPPY (OR AT LEAST LESS SAD) is a workbook offering a place of solace, distraction, and a fresh perspective on life. This book will not fix you and it will not make you happy, but it promises to help you rediscover the simple pleasures in life and, ultimately, make you feel that little less sad. "This book made me nervous when I first scanned through it because I knew it would work! This isn't a self-help book; it's more of a blue-collar, get-down-to business friend with calloused hands who is ready to boogie when you are. This book is about action. But also acknowledgement. There are no platitudes and its author is no Pollyanna. It's an explicit map that leads to a place where you're going to feel measurably better, and better equipped to face life's vicissitudes." - Rob Delaney, Comedian

"Goldie Hawn embodies delight and joy, and 10 Mindful Minutes radiates these. Her book can help any adult-parent, grandparent, teacher-make double use of their moments with the children they love and have a terrific time while helping shape that child's brain for a lifetime of resilience and happiness." -Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence Across the country, the revolutionary MindUP program, which was developed under the auspices of the Hawn Foundation, established by Goldie Hawn, is teaching children vital social and emotional skills. By understanding how their brains work, children discover where their emotions come from and become more self-aware. They learn to appreciate the sensory aspects of their lives and to value the positive effects of mindfulness, compassion, and kindness. This, in turn, empowers them to manage and reduce their own stress-and helps them be happy. Those who have seen the remarkable effects of this program have been eager to learn how to implement it in their own homes and use its practices for themselves, too. Now, for the first time, its secrets are being shared with all parents and children in 10 Mindful Minutes.
