Mindful : April 2014
20 mindful April 2014 LOVE YOUR ENEMIES How to Break the Anger Habit & Be a Whole Lot Happier By Sharon Salzberg and Rober t Thurman • Hay House We usually think our “enemies” are outside of us. But Sharon Salzberg and Rober t Thurman suggest it’s mostly about our inner enemies: self-destructive impulses, obsessive thoughts, and even a dollop of self-loathing that keep us from being more fulfilled. In a handy workbook format, the authors ask us to consider where our rage originates and how forgiveness and compas- sion can be cultivated. No one’s pretending it’s easy, but there are some great stories and suggestions here for how to get star ted. THE DISTRACTION ADDICTION Getting the Information You Need and the Communication You Want, Without Enraging Your Family, Annoying Your Colleagues, and Destroying Your Soul By Alex Soojung-Kim Pang • Little, Brown and Company Alex Soojung-Kim Pang, who’s studied people and technology for 20 years, under- stands the tech-rich world we all navigate. And his book might help us do that better. This is applied mindfulness at its best: get to know yourself, your tools, and your mind in relation to those tools, then you can be in a position to make conscious, even wise, decisions about your technology use. SITTING STILL LIKE A FROG Mindfulness Exercises for Kids (and Their Parents) By Eline Snel • Shambhala Publications Kids are keen to learn, often live in the moment, and are capable of industrial- strength attention. They also struggle with thinking they’re not good or cool enough. Sitting Still Like a Frog teaches children mindfulness through an amphibious friend who sits very still and breathes—preser ving energy and paying attention to every thing going on around him. Many practices fill the book and audio CD, and all of them remind us, and our children, just how easily thoughts can move us off our lily pads. ● SMARTER THAN YOU THINK How Technology Is Changing Our Minds for the Better By Clive Thompson • The Penguin Press Worried our digitally enhanced lifestyles are eroding human capabilities? Clive Thomp- son used to fret about that, too. We do need to be vigilant about our use of supercomput- ers, but Thompson’s more interested in how we off-load much of our data storage, for example—which means we now have more time and mental capacity to do what we do best: be intuitive, apply human insight. This is a reasoned and eloquent celebration of human ingenuity, which has always been aided by the tools we ourselves invent. FIND THE MOON TONIGHT if you can. Gaze at it for a few minutes. Sounds dorky, but really, it’s not. The moon is very cool.
