Mindful : February 2014
20 mindful February 2014 REAL HAPPINESS AT WORK Meditations for Accomplishment, Achievement, and Peace By Sharon Salzberg • Workman Following Real Happiness, her popular plain-language introduction to meditation, longtime mindfulness teacher Sharon Salzberg offers a pithy manual for bringing meditation to the office. From procrastina- tion to boredom to office politics, common- place problems are examined with an eye to taking better care of ourselves by cultivating attention, good communica- tion, and kindness. “Stealth meditations” sprinkled throughout offer a great way to infiltrate the speedy workplace with some peace and generosity. HARDWIRING HAPPINESS The New Brain Science of Content- ment, Calm, and Confidence By Rick Hanson • Harmony Books The human brain is a mar vel, but it has also evolved with a “negativity bias.” As Rick Hanson puts it, our brains operate like “Velcro for bad experiences but Teflon for good ones.” Hanson’s book is designed to help us reverse that. Sound like an invita- tion to slip on some rose-colored glasses? Not so. It’s just “correc ting your brain’s tendency to look through smog-tinted ones.” Learning how to really take in the good stuff is the key. It doesn’t mean life won’t still throw us cur veballs. It just means we’ll be less likely to strike out. THE HEALING PRACTICE OF MINDFULNESS By Saki Santorelli • Better Listen! If mindfulness is about “cultivating our innate capacity for wakefulness,” then Saki Santorelli’s four-disc set is a good place to star t. Its mixture of formal medi- tation prac tice and exercises designed to help us bring mindfulness into all par ts of our lives is straightfor ward and inspiring. Meditation is presented as less rarified here. It’s the stopping throughout our busy days to check in with what we’re feeling while noticing what’s happening all around us that improves the quality of our lives. Building a regular meditation prac tice can help us get better at that. ● BRAINSTORM The Teenage Brain from the Inside Out By Dan Siegel • Tarcher When was the last time you heard the path from adolescence to young adulthood described in positive terms? Dan Siegel says that all too often we consider these sometimes-turbulent years—12 to 24, in his book—as something to “endure” or “get through” at best. But Siegel sees it differ- ently: we need to understand the consider- able changes that occur in brain develop- ment in these years. If we learn to harness the sense of adventure, the vitality, and the courage unleashed in the teenage brain, we can live better lives in adulthood—and help our kids achieve that, too.
