Mindful : February 2017
10 THE POWER OF OFF Nancy Colier. (Sounds True). Having a universal communicator, satel- lite-driven locator, and encyclopedia of all knowledge everpre- sent at our finger tips is making us a bit crazy, and, according to Colier, a bit unkind. As a therapist she’s seen how a “teched- out mind” can make you unhappy. Her stories— warm, sad, and funny—make you examine what “convenience” really means. Dipping in here now and then will offer a reminder to take a well-earned tech break. MAKE PEACE WITH YOUR MIND Mark Coleman. (New World Library). This book is about waging peace with the voice in our head that constantly battles with us—to our detriment and to the detriment of those around us. “Inner critic” here is not just a tool for marketing a generic meditation book. Coleman takes apart the critic and assesses its origins, its pros, and its cons with curiosity and insight. He unravels it and makes it possible to see it not as a big, bad monster, but simply as human intelligence run amok. With a bit of love and care, it can fall away of its own accord. SMARTER, FASTER, BETTER Charles Duhigg. (Random House). What separates “the merely busy from the genuinely productive”? They don’t work harder, Duhigg says; they make the right choices. Using big-name examples like Disney, he reveals which choices lead to true success. CURE Jo Marchant. (Crown). In Cure, Jo Marchant explores research into the placebo effect, meditation, prayer, conditioning, and more as she aims to reintroduce “mind” into conventional science and medicine, since “body”—a more measurable unit of study—has “sidelined the more intangible effects of the mind.” START HERE Eric Langshur and Nate Klemp. (North Star Way). Self-care is the health care of the future. And here’s an early entrant in the field: a secular, research-based regimen for body-mind fitness that would be the envy of any trainer. MIND Daniel Siegel. (WW Norton). The mind, Siegel explains, goes beyond brain function; it’s a wondrous process that regulates the flow of energy and information residing in our whole body and yet remakes itself anew every moment.
