Discovering Mindfulness with "Mindful Moments" by Mark McIntyre. LIFTu Author & Coach Isle of Wight.


Mindful Moments book by Mark McIntyre Coach Isle of Wight


In the hustle and bustle of modern life, it's easy to get lost in the whirlwind of events, responsibilities, and endless to-do lists. We often rush from one task to another, barely pausing to breathe, let alone reflect. But what if there was a way to slow down, even for a moment, and truly connect with our inner selves? Enter "Mindful Moments" by Mark McIntyre.


"Mindful Moments" is not just a book; it's an invitation. An invitation for you to step back from the chaos, give yourself the gift of time, and embark on a journey of self-discovery. Crafted with care and personal experience, this book offers a structured approach to mindfulness, spread over 52 sessions - ideally, one for each week of the year. Each session is meticulously designed with two main exercises: a colouring activity related to the week's theme and reflective writing based on a given subject. These exercises are complemented by empowering prompts, nudging you to ponder your actions in the upcoming week.


The themes explored in "Mindful Moments" revolve around thoughts, emotions, and actions. From understanding that success is not merely the accumulation of material possessions but rather how you feel, in part via the liberating realisation that letting go, though challenging, is essential for moving forward. The book encourages you to seize the present, reminding you that tomorrow is a blank canvas, unmarred by today's events.


As the creator of "Mindful Moments", my journey in crafting this book was filled with late nights, bouts of inspiration, and moments of doubt. The challenges I faced were ironically at odds with the book's theme. The rush to perfect every detail, the quest for the right quotes, and ensuring a seamless flow throughout the book taught me a valuable lesson: sometimes, taking your time results in fewer errors. The book's creation process, though demanding, reinforced the very message it seeks to convey - enjoy the journey and give yourself the time you deserve.

"Mindful Moments" is more than just a mindfulness guide; it's a testament to the transformative power of introspection. While primarily aimed at individuals in their mid-life, seeking a fresh start or a deeper understanding of their life's journey, the book resonates with anyone yearning for change. Whether you're familiar with mindfulness practices or are just starting, "Mindful Moments" offers a gentle hand, guiding you towards a more centred and fulfilling life.


In conclusion, if there's one message I'd like you to take away from "Mindful Moments", it's this: life-change can begin with something as simple as sitting down and granting yourself the time to think. So, why not start today?
