It is a bold statement: mindfulness is better than chocolate. How could the practice of being mindful and present in each moment be better than one of the best comfort foods out there? David Michie is prepared to tell you why.
In Michie’s book “Mindfulness Is Better Than Chocolate: A Practical Guide to Enhanced Focus and Lasting Happiness in a World of Distractions” he provides tips on how to rewire one’s brain for happiness through the implementation of mindfulness. Mindfulness is paying attention to the present moment, deliberately and without judgment. It is a mental practice that provides huge benefits to those to use it. Making mindfulness a part of one’s daily life can provide a reduction in stress, strengthen the immune system, help one break bad habits more easily, improve self esteem and more.
Michie points out that each person’s point of view of the world is their own creation. If one emphasizes distractions they will constantly be distracted but if they emphasize being in the moment then they can enjoy freedom within their daily life. Michie uses a combination of Buddhist teachings and contemporary science to teach readers how to experience a stress-free mind. Through the use of mindfulness and meditation Michie teaches readers to find the things they need to lead fulfilled and content lives.
“Mindfulness is Better Than Chocolate” is praised as “a practical and informed exposition of meditative techniques, complemented by a lucid scientific overview” and a “delightful read.”
