Publisher's Summary

Mindfulness practice can help you reduce stress, improve performance, manage pain and increase wellbeing. These are the reasons why elite athletes, performing artists, and business leaders are taking up the practice, and why it is being introduced into the world's most successful companies, banks, business schools – even the US Army.
David Michie introduces mindfulness practice and offers innovative solutions to common obstacles. Drawing on ancient Buddhist teachings and contemporary science, he also takes us beyond "mindfulness lite", offering lucid instructions on how to experience the pristine nature of one's own consciousness directly – an encounter that is truly life-changing.

What did you love best about Mindfulness Is Better than Chocolate?

I can relate to the Mindfulness and Chocolate. I loved the approach that he used in the book about getting to Mindfulness.

What did you like best about this story?

The different ways one can acquire Mindfulness and that it isn't something that you can just "GET". One has to dedicate time to this process.

What does David Michie bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Listening to his voice and things he would emphasize.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes it was and did. And will listen again and again. There is soooo much information in the book that one can not grasp in just one listening.

Any additional comments?

Thank you David for another Great "READ".
