    1 thought on “Mindfulness Is Better Than Chocolate: A Practical Guide to Enhanced Focus and Lasting Happiness in a World of Distractions

    1. Is he serious Does he seriously think that coming home after a really bad date would be better helped by mindfulness rather than a family size bar of Cadbury s fruit and nut Does he honestly think that the day you realise that summer is coming and you ll have to get into a cozzie in a couple of months, you should sit cross legged and meditate zen style rather than having a last splurge on a couple of ok, whole pack of chocolate covered digestives Diet starts tomorrow, as does mindfulness Are you [...]

    2. I m quite grateful to David Michie for this book, because mindfulness is such a hot thing nowadays being very quickly diagnosed for many mental health issues, etc, that it s easy to lose track of its Buddhist origins and connections.Which is where, of course, things can get problematic As a Christian, I m actually trying to work through how my faith can be tied in with this practice that, on the basis of what looks like some reasonably objective scientific research, is of great physical and ment [...]

    3. A relaxing read that takes you on an informative journey of inner peace toward eternal happiness.Why Mindfulness is better than Chocolate by David Michie is a book that draws you in from the first time you lay your eyes on the cover to the moment you close the book A love for chocolate and it s ability to heal all woes is one that is well known worldwide and was my initial attraction to this book The use of a slightly unwrapped chocolate bar, which teases the senses before your reading journey e [...]

    4. An introduction to mindfulness, how to do it and the benefits it may bring both to individuals and organisations Research has shown that the human mind wanders a large percentage of time and that results in unhappiness Further, we are at our happiest when our mind is not wandering and that is similar to the mindfulness state This agrees with centuries old Buddhist teaching Thus, meditation is the training ground for mindfulness The journey to mindfulness can be long and difficult even though it [...]

    5. I found this book useful both in terms of its practical instructions and its contextualising of meditation and mindfulness within Buddhist tradition That said, I think it attempted too much in relation to contextualising The style is reminiscent of a series of lectures each section with clear headings and replete with anecdotes or stories from ancient teachers Both the headings and the anecdotes are helpful but I would have preferred a broad background summary and fewer chapters The use of medit [...]

    6. Mindfulness is something that I have been practicing for a quiet a number of years I purchased this book at an airport when I was between flights I have read a number of David Michie s books and am a particular fan of his Dalai Lama s cat series So I thought I would grab this book as I was familiar with his previous works, besides I was curious about why mindfulness maybe better than chocolate See, I m not actually a chocolate fan however numerous friends of mine adore chocolate so I do keep sto [...]

    7. Descubrir el mundo Mindfulness es una de las mejores cosas que me han pasado en el ltimo a o Sin embargo, a n no me hab a decidido a leer ning n libro especializado porque a veces estas gu as inici ticas se me parecen demasiado a esos manuales inservibles de autoayuda llenos de teor a, promesas y casu stica a veces dudosa de personas tan poco parecidas a m como un pepino Pero nada m s lejos de la realidad en este caso Una gu a muy til, con la teor a justa y muchas ideas, tiles, s , y realizables [...]

    8. This is a good introductory book to the practice of mindfulness, and I would definitely recommend it to any novice I like how the author explains the benefits of meditation and mindfulness and the resulting love and compassion I don t like his attempts to bridge this into the corporate world, and I found the chapter on meditation in the business world irrelevant to my situation and almost deceitful to Eastern philosophy, which doesn t hint the author doesn t state this outright at using meditati [...]

    9. I ve read several books on meditation and mindfulness in recent months This one is the clearest representation of what these practices actually mean and how they can benefit your life Michie s realistic approach is refreshing He gives the novice permission to approach new behaviors slowly and to be patient with oneself Especially helpful is a discussion of monkey mind and how it is our choice to view ourself as a victim or someone empowered to improve our life The suggestion to Acknowledge, Acce [...]

    10. An excellent introduction to mindfulness, meditation and the science around them Very readable, informative and inspiring It motivated me to start meditating again after not having practised for than a year Lots of good tips for getting into the habit and a good coverage of different techniques.

    11. A nice little guide to Mindfulness and Meditation.Written with humour and humility Definitely NOT one of those ego driven self help books.Highly recommended.

    12. Meditation provides the tools not only to abide comfortably in the present, but also to observe rather than engage with unhappiness creating thoughts When we understand the true nature of mind, we start to see these thoughts merely as thoughts instead of engaging with them They arise, abide, and pass They have no substance and certainly no power unless we git it to them The researchers summarized A human mind is a wandering mind, and a wandering mind is an unhappy mind The ability to think abou [...]

    13. Some scientific info mixed with some esoteric bullshit, overlap with Hurry up and meditate Not much practical.

    14. Not a bad introduction to meditation While at graduate school I attended a meditation that centered around chocolate Examining it, feeling the texture Then eating it, savoring the flavors, the warmth in our mouths, the sweetness, etc So this book caught my eye, especially after reading a book about the history of chocolate It wasn t quite what I had expected I thought it might be for someone who was familiar with mindfulness and meditation and was looking for it to be a deeper practice Instead, [...]

    15. This book was my first foray in the world of mindfulness and meditation, and I m fairly well sold I ve never been a big believer in meditation, but I was intrigued by the idea of mindfulness, so I thought I would read up on it a bit What I like about David Michie is that he seems very down to earth I have known people who get caught up in the spiritual aspect of meditation who use vague terminology and confusing parables to add a false layer of mystery over the whole thing This seems to defeat t [...]

    16. It s an ok intro to mindfulness Semi helpful in the pursuit of mindfulness practice I disagree with a good portion of the author s scientific evidence, or not so scientific, depending on your opinion of what scientific means I also find that the author is obviously prejudiced in favor of Buddhism as the proper form of mediation I am not Buddhist, but I do meditate and enjoy it It s an interesting read, although you can skip over large chunks I ve read and retained several of the books he quotes [...]

    17. Better than chocolate mmm Maybe But not at first This isn t my first foray into a book on Mindfulness, so I can t comment on how effective this book is with beginners of meditation However, it s a pleasant read, and the advise and information on the benefits of mindfulness and meditation isn t far fetched and out of this world, like some books are It s a good, down to Earth primer on the subject, and the author has a pleasant writing style.In the end, I think mindfulness is better than chocolate [...]

    18. A new book on Mindfulness for absolute beginners Clear, full of examples and suggestions Feasible from start to finish But if you re already familiar with this kind of meditation, this book is not for you.Un nuovo libro sulla Mindfulness per principianti assoluti Chiaro, pieno di esempi e suggerimenti Fattibile dall inizio alla fine Se per siete gi al corrente di come funzioni questo tipo di meditazione, questo libro non fa per voiANKS TO NETGALLEY AND THE EXPERIMENT FOR THE PREVIEW

    19. I did this one audio and found the author to be a great reader for the material As a long term meditator, this was a rousing pat on the back to keep going in the same direction and to refocus my mindfulness in a minute to minute kind of way Often not an easy endeavor but worth the effort in that direction I think for those new to meditation and mindfulness, a great introduction and a convincing argument to give both a shot.

    20. I liked most sections of this book Many of the key points went into so much detail, however, that I skimmed through them I will certainly take some of these recommendations that the author made Overall, a decent book It s perfect if you want in depth studies and meditation broken down and dissected to a science I personally did not care for those sections, so I simply skimmed them.

    21. Book given to me by my provisional psychologist daughter who had to do mindfulness training as part of her studies and some good sharing of practical experience as well as scientific evidence of the benefits, both personally and organisationally, of mindfulness and 10 minutes of medittaion per day.

    22. I like David Michie But this was a bit disappointing It has too many overlaps with Hurry up and meditate Only the last section was interesting But it put me onto Willpower Rediscovering the Greatest Human Strength by John Tierney and Roy Baumeister So that s a good thing.

    23. I am still not convinced mindfulness is better than chocolate but this book certainly has some good ideas to reduce stress and increase wellbeing.Book Riot read harder challenge task 24 A self improvement book can be traditionally or non traditionally considered self improvement

    24. I have to confess the title attracted me, the meditation instructions are simple and easy to follow, but I didn t need to read so much of the sales blurb on why I should meditate I was sold on that already

    25. This is the 4th book of David Michie I ve read and I love his easy to read, down to earth, modern interpretations of ancient Buddhist philosophy I think his background in PR does him a favour to share what can sometimes be a challenging topic to grasp in modern day language.
