A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled
About this deal
I enjoyed Ruby Wax's writing style, although I take issue with the Arianna Huffington quote on the back cover describing it as 'hilarious' because it isn't. The sale of customised goods or perishable goods, sealed audio or video recordings, or software, which has been opened.
I don’t think that discussion about psychopharmacological drugs belongs in a book about mindfulness.Well, it's mainly because I find Ruby Wax's trademark abrasive style of humour at odds with the subject matter. I was a terrible actress, I couldn't sing, I couldn't do characters, I couldn't do an English accent and I lived in England, so I was narrowing it down". for anyone new to Mindfulness this book is a good introduction and a great read that can be dipped in and out of as and when needed.
In più, alcune delle wikipediche informazioni sul cervello e sul suo funzionamento sono interessanti e/o curiose. She is the author of books Sane New World and A Mindfulness Guide for the Frazzled, and has toured all over the world with the accompanying one-woman shows. Possibly this is because I don't have depression, and neither did I go through a more-than-averagely-traumatic childhood.
So they're interesting, and I suspect relevant to anyone who has any sort of contact with babies, children or teenagers, even if they're not your own. She met French and Saunders at a party and worked alongside them a number of times, on television in Happy Families, at charity events such as Hysteria and notably the sitcom Girls on Top.
A very interesting book but I think I made a mistake listening to the audio book rather than having a real copy. That said, the nature of mindfulness does require commitment, so you still need to do the practice to get the results! Ruby additionally holds a Master’s degree in Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy from Oxford University, and was awarded an OBE in 2015 for her services to mental health. I found myself reading, re-reading, quoting, highlighting and speaking it out loud in my own depressive episode. She had previously earned a postgraduate certificate in psychotherapy and counselling from Regents College in London.I didn't really have high hopes going into this book but I do like Ruby Wax and thought I'd give it a shot as I'm on the lookout for any help with depression and anxiety. She then says these responses are built into us to make us ‘man up’ when in danger (a toxic expression, if ever there was one) and goes on to describe fight as using your energy to ‘kick ass’, flight to ‘get the hell out of there’, and (this is what made me angry) said, ‘or if you’re a loser, freeze like a rabbit in the headlights’.
