Book Review: Mindfulness: A Journal

screen-shot-2016-11-22-at-6-34-05-pmSerendipitously I was dreaming-up something like this for a journal I’d want to keep and lo and behold here it is, in a book form: Mindfulness: A Journal by Catherine Price.

I’ve wanted to return to journaling but was hesitant since I felt that if left to my own devices I’d use a journal as a dumping ground for negative thoughts or things I was hoping to sort out.  This book offers a mindfulness approach to writing and maintaining a journal that will be an excellent way to stay present and focused, and prompting users to stop and notice things in the world around us.

Catherine Price writes a lovely contemplative introduction to the book and has provided wonderful quotations and writing prompts. The recommended resources at the end of the book contain a number of authors you might hope and expect to see there along with a host of others whose names are more vaguely familiar.

The look and feel of the book was well-conceived, too.  A very pleasing subtle color and design. Perhaps the only thing I would have liked to have seen would have been stich binding, but that being said, this book is a real gift.

Disclosure: I received this book from the Blogging for Books program in exchange for this review.
