Written by two sturdy-legged, chip eating meditating sisters from Scotland, My Mind Won't Shut Upis the book they looked for to give to friends, but couldn't find... so they wrote this for you. An easy-to-follow, sometimes funny, non-confrontational book on how you can use meditation to help you be aware of the present moment. The more conscious you become of your repetitive internal gibberish, the easier it will be to spot unhelpful thoughts, drop them, or replace them with kinder ones. What this book is... Everything you need to know about meditation without being too po-faced about it. It squishes popular myths about meditation being all pan pipes and incense. Shows you how to manage your preposterously messy brain, making you feel a bit happier and more in control. Tackles all your wriggly excuses that discourage you from making meditation a habit. What this book isn't... This book is not a spiritual journey. We can t show you how to control your thoughts and feelings having a chaotic mind is just an annoying part of being human. There's nothing religious in here. It won't make you better at Kung Fu.
