The Practice (Paperback)

Simple Tools for Managing Stress, Finding Inner Peace, and Uncovering Happiness

Barb Schmidt

The Practice provides simple tools for managing stress, finding inner peace and uncovering happiness.

The mind has an annoying way of interfering with our personal happiness, often causing stress and doubt, and preventing us achieving our life's goals. But, it doesn't need to be like that. With the help of The Practice, Barb Schmidt's three-point plan to personal happiness, you can train your brain to dismiss ill-founded worries and cultivate a happy, purposeful life.
All it takes is just a few minutes of your day!
Specifically designed for those who live busy lives, The Practice guides you through a set of practical tools that you can easily incorporate into your daily routine. The three-steps are:
1. Waking Up: Meditation - to set a peaceful tone for the day
2. Living Present: Sacred Mantra, Focussed Attention, Reading for Inspiration - designed to focus your mind on the moment and provide comfort and support
3. Letting Go: Reflection - a wind-down period to put the events of the day to rest.
We lead busy lives. Lost in a daily routine of to-do lists and responsibilities is our happiness and peace of mind. We know that we should live in the present but our minds often take us on a treadmill of regrets about the past and worries about the future. Stressed and drained of energy, we focus on outward things that are supposed to make us happy - but they rarely do. In The Practice you will learn that a wellspring of inner peace and happiness exists inside each one of us, and this wellspring is easily accessible with simple techniques that only require a few minutes a day. Use timeless wisdom from a range of religions and teachings, Barb Schmidt has constructed an easy-to-implement, three-part daily routine - Waking Up, Living Present, Letting Go - that will guide you to deep happiness, help you to find security and confidence, manage the inevitable daily stresses and live a calmer, more present existence.
