I like reading self help books. There are many self help books available to choose from; some good, some not so good. What makes a self help book good to me is that it is written in a language that I can understand, using everyday words that don’t send me to the medical dictionary (aka Google) to look up. What also makes a good self help book is one that can be read either all at once or in snippets.
I like choices, so I like being able to read a self help book and arrive at some solutions to my problems rather quickly; like in one chapter. McDonough offers solutions very quickly, in under 60 seconds. Sixty seconds is fast, lightening fast; and in my world (probably yours too) fast is better, right? Want to learn some breathing techniques fast? McDonough teachers you in one chapter how to focus your breathing to begin relaxing. To be sure, McDonough lays out the lessons in sixty seconds, but to attain any kind of benefit, the exercises following the lessons need to be practiced.
By reading the author’s short stories culled from her own life’s lessons, you lean that everyone has room to explore, learn, and grow toward living peacefully. Sixty seconds is really all you need a day to read a chapter that could potentially change your life.
If you have a bit more time available, then you can enjoy reading A Minute for Me in longer portions. Reading several chapters will guide you through multiple exercises, each able to stand alone in their importance but yet combining as a whole to make you a more relaxed and more mindful person.
If you’re interested in studying yoga or mindfulness but not sure where to start, start with A Minute for Me. Surely you have 60 seconds to give to yourself? I didn’t think I had that much time, but I discovered I did; and that I needed it!
I give this book 4 smiles!
