Received this book for free to give my honest review. I enjoyed reading this book even though I may not fully get into it or practice it the book had a lot of tips I can still follow ad well as very great quotes one quote I enjoyed is Judge nothing, you will be happy. Forgive everything, you will be happier. Love everything, you will be happiest. —Sri Chinmoy, The Goal Is Won I feel like that is a great quote and it would be great to follow believe it would take a lot off your chest. That is what I liked most there was a lot of great tips to help shed some stress, hatred, grudges, worries off my chest without really even being into the whole mediation process it is still great to read to give you some positive thoughts and quotes and ways to cope. Another part of the book I thought was good advice is when it said “holding a grudge is like drinking poison and believing it’s going to kill your enemy ” just good advice in this book that is very true don’t hold a grudge it will hurt you more then your enemy. I suggest this book to anyone not just someone who wants to practice meditation because it does give you a lot of advice and very positive quotes and will help you even if you don’t meditate.

I thought this was a very good book. I never knew much about Meditation until I read this book. I’m a mother and this book has taught me about how I can be more calm. I really loved how much I learned from it. I often get stressed, so this book has thought me a lot about the ways to deal with stress. Taking just ten minutes out of your day to meditate can be very helpful. The tips and suggestions are wonderful. They’ll be able to help you relax.

As someone who is trying to really incorporate meditation into my daily life, I can really appreciate that this book has a multitude of offerings on how to work in meditation into your daily life in just about 10 minutes. I received a copy of this e-book in exchange for my honest opinion. My opinions remain both mine and honest. I really enjoyed this book – it was an easy read and had a lot of thought provoking ideas that have really helped me connect more with myself both on the inner peace side of things and overall spirituality. I did find it was a bit heavy on the anecdotes and at times, that felt a bit much, but the overall feeling and vibe of a positive life with meditation was there and I really liked that. I liked the imagery of the soles of my feet kissing the ground and the intimacy that this thought evoked for me and how I had never connected that idea together before – it was humbling and really did give me a new level of self awareness. I think this is a good read for anyone looking to find more mechanisms for coping with busy schedules but needing to find that inner “me” time to really destress and re-engage with youself.

This is a great beginners guide to learning the art of meditation or for those who want a more consistent way to learn how to meditate. I tried to learn how to mediate a few times but just couldn’t get the hang of settling the thoughts in my mind to be able to concentrate. That is because I didn’t understand the whole dynamics of the relaxation process like finding a nice quiet place, calming music (if you’d like), relaxing position, and calming your thoughts. Meditation is a great way to learn how to know, shape, and liberate your mind!

A great gateway to really relaxing

I’m wasn’t what you’d call the meditative type. I tend to be more proactive with things, not one to let things sit idly by. I assumed that’s what meditation was about, a zen state where things simply rolled off you, and things just passed you by. Instead what this book showed me was that meditation is about tuning in to the background sounds of life, enhancing one’s concentration, getting in touch with the essence of others, and helping one get the most out of relaxation in between life’s madness.Meditation Now is for beginners (like me) as well as meditative pros who want to get back in touch with the basics. I found a lot to like in the book from beginning to end

I have always wanted to start meditating and this book was the perfect start. Reading the book itself is very peaceful. It includes quotes that relate to meditation. It also clears up any questions or concerns that one may have about meditation. Before delving deep into the meditation tips, it describes all of the basic facts that you would need to know before choosing to begin meditating.

An Awesome Read for Beginning Meditation!

I absolutely enjoyed this eBook, especially since I’m a work-at-home, homeschooling mama of 3! I knew I would be able to take a lot away from this book. The writing style is very smooth and as I’m reading it, the voice in my head is very soothing as it walks me through the meditation techniques. I actually almost fell asleep during the first meditation method, Basic 1-Minute Meditation, because I was so relaxed. There are different methods in this ebook to help you find the time and place to meditate. You can start out at 1 minute, which includes counting your breathing (inhaling/exhaling), and it seems basic enough but it so relaxed me. I have a hard time falling asleep without my phone or Kindle in my face so I read this eBook at night, tried out the 1 min. mediation method and was asleep soon after!

Thank you for my 10 mins of me time multiple times a day!

I have just finished reading Meditation now: A Beginners Guide: 10 minute Meditations to Restore Calm and Joy Anytime, Anywhere and I have taken a few days to practice the different techniques it says to try. I always thought meditation is where you sit in a room in Indian style and say Ummmm Ummmm. Boy was I wrong! This book has taught me how to meditate in a way I am comfortable. It has answered my questions like: What is meditation? and How is meditation different from breathing or just relaxing? It explained the simple things like how to be comfortable while meditating and how to make a schedule you can stick to for your meditation time. There are so many different ways to meditate and this book explains so many like how to do it at work or a basic 1 min meditation. It tells about how posture is important and answers other questions that I never would have thought of honestly. This book has been so great for me. I have a very stressful life. I take care of 2 kids with medical issues and my mom on hospice, as well as do paperwork for my dads trucking company. This book has taught me how to take back my 10 minutes to breath and meditate in peace! I received this book for free for an honest and unbiased review and I am Happy to say I can give a very good review on this book!

Practical Idealism

There’s a lot going on in in this title. It functions as a beginner’s guide, sure, but Reninger writes with a definite slant towards a certain philosophical paradigm that may or may not agree with everyone. I found myself wondering on the nature of self and thoughts, and whether I agree with the author on her perspective. The book fills out with various meditative experiences not commonly considered, such as walking while meditating or even eating in a meditative manner. And while these sections are interesting, the thought of consumption of life into a meditative state starts to feel a little strange, particularly if you’re hesitant about Reininger’s paradigm to begin with. Even so, she writes with a warmth that makes it an easy read with enough practical consideration that trying out her starting point of a one minute meditation seems entirely reasonable and worthwhile. Disclosure: I received this title for free.

Meditation is a part of my culture. My mom and mother in law do it every day and urge me to do the same. I “meditated” when I was younger as well, but it was more like playing the quiet game to me. I understood the concept, but not much more than that. Meditation Now is a great little book for beginners. It does not take up a lot of your time, is well written, and walks you through a few different processes to try, as well as different 28 day programs to work it into your routine. I’m trying to put aside a little time every day to meditate now, but I haven’t religiously built it into my day yet.
