Mindfulness for Carers

Mindfulness for Carers: How to Manage the Demands of Caregiving While Finding a Place for Yourself - Cheryl Rezek

As a full time Carer I’m always looking out for something that will help save my sanity. Mindfulness for Carers is that something! I can’t really praise this book enough, so here are just a couple of reasons why every carer needs this book..

Firstly it’s down to earth; A lot of mindfulness books I have read are so preachy. This one is short, sharp and very much to the point. It’s written in basic english we can all understand without all the mumbo-jumbo.

Second it’s short; Carers are busy people, we don’t have time to sit and read pages and pages of extra info, we just want the facts written in a quick concise manner. Mindfulness for Carers understands this, the book is in short chapters, with short easy to scan paragraphs, so you get the info you need fast.

Third the meditations themselves are short: A busy carer doesn’t have time to sit for half an hour meditation. Cheryl understands this and so has some very fast 2 min excercises that help. And trust me they do, I tried them.

There is an audio CD/download of the meditations, sadly I can’t say anything about those, as I didn’t receive them with the book (I received free for review), but I have a feeling they will add to what is already a good buy.

So if your a carer, or even if your not, you need this book. Enjoy

NB I received this book free for an honest review
