One of the things I hear most often from people who ask me to work with them one-on-on or come to my classes and workshops is how hard it is to develop a daily mindfulness and meditation practice.
I hear that. Believe me I do.
It IS hard!
For years, I struggled, too, with developing a daily practice and really reaping all of the benefits mindfulness has to offer
Benefits like "better relationships, less stress, increased resilience, and fewer instances of feeling overwhelmed, " and "improved concentration, better sleep and better health as you age".
In response, I decided to create an easy-to-follow daily e-course just for my subscribers, to help you cultivate mindfulness not just while you are meditating, but at work, home, when you scroll through social media, when you eat, move and all of the other things you do daily.
The feedback from this course was SO great!
Here's what one participant, John C., wrote to tell me:
I had been interested in learning more about Mindfulness, it’s a term we hear often these days, so when I got Felina’s email about 45 Days of Mindfulness,
I said, “Yes, I’ll do this!”
And it has been a revealing experience. I have become aware of aspects of my personality that I was not aware of before. For example, I realized how I respond to requests from others, both personal and business, and I have made a conscious decision to respond differently.
My normal response had been with resentment and anger. But early on in this 45-Day exercise, I saw that I could respond with love and kindness and enthusiasm instead, and when I do, I feel better about myself.
I’m looking forward to learning more and changing more as this process continues.
Way to go, John!
And because he, and so many others have loved the free e-course (even though I hadn't planned on it) I've decided to make it available as a FREE downloadable e-book, 45 Days of Mindfulness: The Easy Guide to Developing a Daily Practice.
It's my very first book on mindfulness and I'm SO delighted to share it with you!
With easy to follow daily practices, I give you guidance on how to bring mindfulness
into your life in practical ways: at home, at work, while eating, using digital technology and
social media, exercising, and more. By starting with just one minute of practice on the first
day, and building slowly, day by day, you're shown how to build a lifetime mindfulness
practice in just 45 days while, at the same time, enjoying its benefits from day one.
Why am I so passionate about helping you to develop a practice for life?
Because I have seen the results of what regular mindfulness and meditation have done in my own personal experience and that of so many others. You deserve to have "more peace, more joy and less overwhelm", too.
Because the world needs you now more than ever.
My 45th birthday is this week and, with age, I've been taking a look at the world around me and what we are creating for our children.
I know you care as much as I do about contributing to the social, political, environmental and other challenges we face today. And by cultivating mindfulness, you will inexorably be part of the solution to the pressing problems of our times. Slowly and imperceptibly at first, but powerfully and inevitably.
For your benefit, and for your kids.
And our planet, too.
I hope you'll enjoy this FREE downloadable e-book, 45 Days of Mindfulness: The Easy Guide to Developing a Daily Practice.
