    Plenty of practical exercises for newcomers.

    By listening to your body, becoming more aware of what’s happening in the present moment and letting go of negativity you can reduce stress and anxiety, focus better at work, find your own source of calm and discover genuine contentment.

    3. Mindfulness and the modern world : how do I make meditation part of everyday life? / Osho.

    Explore both the inner and the outer obstacles that prevent us from bringing more awareness to our daily activities.

    4. Mindfulness at work : how to avoid stress, achieve more and enjoy life! / Dr Stephen McKenzie.

    Reveals how the practice of mindfulness – the ability to focus our attention on what is rather than be distracted by what isn’t – can be a powerful antidote to the distractions and stresses of our modern lives, especially our working lives.



    5. Mindfulness at work : turn your job into a gateway to joy, contentment and stress-free living / Oli Doyle.

    Find your stuck points, embrace difficult emotions and notice the patterns of thought that keep you from feeling peaceful.

    6. Mindfulness for beginners : reclaiming the present moment — and your life / Jon Kabat-Zinn.

    A book that you can use in three unique ways; as a collection of reflections and practices to be opened and explored at random; as an illuminating and engaging start-to-finish read; or as an unfolding ‘lesson-a-day’ primer on mindfulness practice.
