The Little Book of Mindfulness | A Look Inside

With a new year, brings new goals and resolutions which I usually do every year but instead of writing lists & not fulfilling them, I found this book - The Little Book of Mindfulness. 
Aside from the cute mint green book cover and gold fonts, this book is a great guide to mindfulness which helps you to focus, slow down and de-stress. It talks about breathing, taking a moment to slow down, looking around you & living in the now. It's not this big life changer but definitely worth a read to enhance how you live and to have a positive outlook on almost everything you do. 

A few of my favourite quotes: 

"You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf."

"Be happy in the moment, that's enough. Each moment is all we need, not more."

"Mindfulness is simply being aware of what is happening right now without wishing it were different; enjoying the pleasant without holding on when it changes (which it will); being with the unpleasant without fearing it will always be this way (which it won't)."

Have any of you read this book? What did you think? Any other positive thinking books you would recommend?
