I was so shocked, I played the section back about five times because I thought I must have misunderstood something. Possibly this is because I don't have depression, and neither did I go through a more-than-averagely-traumatic childhood. It's probably also a good choice if you want to understand something of what it's like to experience depression or if you're struggling to deal with a child or teenager's difficult behaviour.

Drawing on the latest science, she offers insightful, irreverent advice on how to improve every aspect of our lives, from our health and happiness to our relationships and careers.With a Masters from Oxford in mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy, Ruby is now also a mental health campaigner and author. These often tread the line between funny and harrowing and I feel are mostly useful in describing a certain mental state that mindfulness can help with. I did get the feeling as I read through the book though, that perhaps my problems weren't entirely relevant. in parts of it, which is actually a pretty cathartic affirmation that it's not just me that loses my absolute shit about things. I very much liked Ruby Wax's first book "Sane New World: Taming The Mind" which was a very interesting read insightful and funny but this tried to be all things to all women/men as a guide to mindfulness and so included chapters for teenagers and children etc, but for me it felt very much like a retread of her first book with some additional information specific to mindfulness and specific about her own experiences with mental illness which although interesting was not why I bought the book.

OCD impacts on the lives of the whole family, especially those that love and care for people with OCD. Many sexual assault victims freeze, and really mentally struggle afterwards with how they responded. She is Visiting Professor in Mental Health Nursing at the University of Surrey, an Ambassador for the charities Mind, Time to Change and Sane and sits on the board of the Anna Freud Centre. I was already having trouble with the author’s rather chaotic style (going off at tangents, and using endless, complicated comparisons that just made things more confusing), when I was shocked by something they said at about the 20% mark.v=1549289345","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":null,"id":1540037214244,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0. I found parts of this book really easy to read, but faltered at chapter 5 and the mindfulness exercises.

I admit that at this time I haven't gone through the mindfulness excersises in the book, or the section on parenting and teenagers, but I may go back and update the review when I do. It's extremely readable, and Wax includes plenty of easily-digestible but apparently thorough information about how the brain works and what mindfulness can do about it. I have yet to try the six week course, to see if there are real positive changes to be made, but aim to start and report back (to you dear brain) in six weeks time. It's an easy-to-understand introduction to mindfulness, weaved together with Ruby's trademark wit and humour. Letti un paio di libri introduttivi, però, devo ammettere di aver problemi a vedere la separazione tra "notare" e "pensare", o meglio, a capire cosa si intenda per "osservare i propri pensieri" e cose del genere.I loved this as an audiobook, because Wax is engaging and entertaining, and I liked the guided mindfulness that you get with a voice telling you the steps. I’ve never been a massive fan of Ruby Wax but decided to give this book a go after seeing it recommended somewhere. It describes how to improve your well being by being aware of your surroundings and to take time out to practise set exercises and to meditate. Homeopathy is clearly bollocks, ditto for Reiki, and you can shove your crystals where the sun don't shine. In November 2017, she was announced as the president of the UK’s leading relationship support charity Relate.

If you've found that you're stuck at a dead end when it comes to figuring yourself out and how to deal with mental health issues, I would recommend reading this book.Ruby Wax's acting and presenting career has spanned stage and screen, and her writing talent has created some of our favourite television comedies, from Girls on Top to Absolutely Fabulous. I was introduced to mindfulness a decade back, but, (I am ashamed to admit) I did not start practicing till about a year back. Well, as sceptical as I am (and, believe me, I am)from reading this book it seems to me that 'mindfulness' is just another way of saying 'be present in the moment, actually experience your life rather than sleepwalking through it on autopilot'. I remember Ruby Wax from my childhood, but didn't have a clue about her academic achievements, or her struggles with mental health.
