Five Minutes to a Mindful You

A guided journal for self-reflection

By Aster

  • Paperback
  • £12.99

An illustrated journal with mindful writing exercises and prompts to nourish a sense of inner calm.

Mindfulness is in the moments.

In this guided journal there are mindfulness exercises and prompts to help you nourish a sense of inner calm wherever you are.

From immersing yourself in your senses as you savour that first cup of tea or coffee in the morning to letting go of a terrible day, mindfulness develops your awareness. You become the watcher of your emotions, acknowledging all while understanding that you need not be controlled by them.

Journaling is a wonderful practice for developing mindfulness, noticing the glorious detail in life and how you feel without clinging on to your emotions.

Connect with yourself for these few minutes and see all the connections in your life blossom and grow.
