For anyone struggling to manage stress, who have sought out meditation or mindfulness practices in the past, or simply wish to add something different to their daily routine, comes this latest work from Winston (coauthor, Fully Present). Proposing ways to "natural awareness" and enjoy moments of peace, connection, and spaciousness in their lives, the author sets forth "glimpse practices," which encourage readers to take in the multiple facets of an experience, in other words, to stop and pay attention. Additional exercises include listening and asking questions and identifying moments of distraction or "spacing out" as beneficial and to one's advantage.
VERDICT An efficient, handy guide to mindfulness techniques for those already embracing the concept but who aren't sure they're doing it right.
