It's so easy to take simple actions for granted. 5-Minute Mindfulness: Walking is designed to help you take a mindful approach to these commonplace activities, making them enjoyable, fulfilling, and relaxing.

Walking is the perfect activity for reflecting and relaxing. If approached mindfully, it can provide a window of calm in your everyday routine. Don't focus on simply getting from A to B, use these thought-provoking essays and short exercises to follow the path to inner calm while on the move.

That's not all 5-Minute Mindfulness: Walking has to offer though, you'll also enjoy meditations that can be completed in just five minutes. "Five Second Thought" feature boxes that take just a few moments to read will give you food for thought for an entire day.

Attractive, compact, and accessible, these books work in harmony with the fast pace of modern life.
