How to Relax
Stop, relax mindfully, and recharge to control stress and renew mental freshness and clarity. How to Relax by Thich Nhat Hanh is the fifth book from the bestselling Mindfulness Essentials series. This back-to-basics collection of thoughts, ideas and instruction is a clearly written guide that helps introduce anyone to the essentials of mindfulness practice. Thich Nhat Hanh says that when we relax, we "become calm water, and we will reflect reality as it is. If we’re not calm, the image we reflect will be distorted. When the image is distorted by our minds, it’s not the reality, and it causes lots of suffering." Relaxation is essential for accessing the tranquility and joy that lead to increased personal well-being. With sections on healing, relief from nonstop thinking, transforming unpleasant sounds, solitude, being peace, and more, How to Relax can help you achieve the benefits of relaxation no matter where you are. This compact paperback benefits from a simply- formatted style and features sumi-ink drawings by celebrated artist Jason DeAntonis. The perfect take-along book to read (and re-read!) during travel, lunch break or those short moments in-between a busy schedule.
