JUST BE reveals a set of simple practices that can be incorporated into daily life to dissolve unhappiness and promote genuine joie de vivre. It's the kind of happiness that gets into your bones. It seeps into everything you do and helps you shrug off the worst that life can throw at you. The book is based on Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) - the programme at the heart of the bestselling The Mindful Way Through Depression which Professor Mark Williams co-authored with Jon Kabat-Zinn and others in 2007. MBCT revolves around a straightforward form of mindfulness meditation which takes just a few minutes a day for the full benefits to be revealed. MBCT has been clinically proven to be more effective than antidepressants and it iis recommended by the UK's National Institute of Clincal Excellence - in other words, it works.. JUST BE focuses on promoting joy rather than banishing unhappiness. It's precisely focused to help ordinary people boost their happiness and confidence levels whilst also reducing anxiety, stress and irritability.
