I want to give a special thanks to Laura Sebright from Trigger Publishing for sending me the book, My Mind Won’t Shut Up! Meditation for People Who don’t Meditate by Linda and Marion Williamson for review.
My Mind Won’t Shut Up!: Meditation for People Who Don’t Meditate
Published March 2021
About the Author
Realistic, cheeky, and easy-to-read, My Mind Won’t Shut Up is a book that challenges meditation myths. It’s for ordinary, stressed-out people with money worries, weird families, and hemorrhoids. Written by two sturdy-legged Glaswegians with short attention spans, My Mind Won’t Shut Up! is aimed at anyone who is curious about meditation but turned off by anything too woo-woo. It is not a spiritual journey, and it won’t make you better at kung fu. It will help you be kinder to yourself, stop you from spinning out, and make you less prone to emotional wobbles.
This is a great book for anyone who wants to learn how to meditate without all the complicated routines and jargon. What you see is what you get here and it feels good to hear real people who struggle to meditate for all the same reasons we do and how they find a way to fit it into their life.
Linda and Marion show us how to be kind to ourselves and set realistic expectations. Which is a problem in many meditation books I’ve read. They have either way too much information or too hoky poky for me. My Mind Won’t Shut Up is a fun and fast read, one you can easily refer to again and again.
They show us in simple terms how we can incorporate meditation into our daily lives and its benefits.
Some reviews even called this a self-help book because it created positive thinking. I can’t think of a better way to learn how to meditate and would recommend this book to anyone who wants a no-nonsense book on how to meditate.
