Overview

Mindfulness as a daily practice has become more and more popular in recent years. But although some of these concepts feel new to us, many of them have in fact been around for hundreds of years.

Even if meditation isn't really your thing, Buddha's Brain shares many ways to become more mindful. It will help you with things like tackling stress, remaining composed under pressure, and learning how to move past times of emotional difficulty.
