21 Days of Eating Mindfully: Your Guide to a Healthy Relationship with Yourself and Food (3rd ed)
If you’re like most women, you spend your days juggling many roles, conflicting commitments and the wants and needs of others. Often you come last, if there’s time. The temptation to reach for food as comfort or distraction can be overwhelming, although the issue is rarely about physical hunger. More times than not, the underlying force is emotion. Eating emotionally can become a way of life. Following two decades of research and practical experience, disordered eating expert Lorrie Jones developed 21 Days of Eating Mindfully, designed to encourage and support you in changing unwanted and unhealthy eating habits by transforming your relationship with yourself. This 21-day journey is not a diet or overnight cure. Rather, it’s an opportunity to inquire more deeply within, providing the keys to establishing a healthy, loving relationship with yourself and enjoying a favorable weight shift and wise eating choices as a natural result and sustainable outcome.
21 Days of Living Mindfully: Your Guide to Conscious Living
Living mindfully is a loving, wholehearted invitation to embrace all of life in a new and more intimate way. It is about slowing down and looking at life without judgment or criticism. It is about being vulnerable, authentic and true to ourselves. It is an opportunity to, once and for all, learn to let go of concepts, ideas, and opinions that keep us grasping for something other than ‘what is’ and to cultivate mindfulness and mindful living: to wake up and live in harmony with oneself and the world. Most of all, mindful living is being in touch – being fully present and opening ourselves to living in acceptance, gratitude, and love. Derived from an accumulation of research, training and life experiences, the 21 Days of Living Mindfully guidebook is an introduction meant to inspire and guide you as you create your own mindful living practice and as you delve into the mindfulness activities and journal prompts. My hope is you will find the information shared in these pages relevant to your own life and that we, together, can create a more peaceful and loving world, one mindful person at a time.
21 Days of Parenting Mindfully: Your Guide to Raising a Mindful Child
One of the challenges of being a parent is to live our moments as fully as possible – awake and aware – walking our own path with heart and above all, nourishing our children while learning and growing ourselves. What is important is that we are authentic and show authenticity with our children, honoring them and ourselves in the best way possible. What matters is the quality of the attention we bring to each moment and our sincere commitment to be a conscious, rather than a perfect, parent. Our deepest desire as parents is to see our children grow and thrive – to see them become healthy, joyful, and emotionally intelligent human beings. Our role is to support them in this process. Mindfulness is available to all of us and it is a way of living in the world – a way of being in the world – that improves our quality of life, allowing happiness to flourish, peace to be possible, and love to abound. Nowhere does mindfulness matter more than in the raising of our children. 21 Days of Parenting Mindfully is an introduction to the principles and truths of connecting with your children in a loving and mindful way – with awareness, compassion, empathy, and love. This book is derived from my own life experiences as a parent, my mindful parenting research, and my professional knowledge of mindfulness practices, including my Certification from UM Medical School Center for Mindfulness in teaching mindfulness-based education and stress reduction practices. My hope is you will find the information contained within relevant to your own life as a parent and that we, together, can raise our children mindfully, one loving and attuned interaction at a time.
